Oman, seven hours' flight from the UK, offers great diving diversity, says Regaldive. Hard and soft corals, rays, leopard sharks, morays, turtles and schooling fish are among the attractions, plus whale sharks in summer (when it can also get very hot).

Seven nights at the Millennium Resort Mussanah in Muscat costs from £1106pp (two sharing). It is said to offer access to more than 40 Gulf of Oman dive-sites, including the UNESCO-protected Daymaniyat and Fahal Islands.

The price includes flights, transfers and seven nights’ half-board. A three-day dive-pack at £173pp includes two unguided boat-dives a day.

Alternatively, seven nights at the Marriott Salalah Beach Resort near Salalah and Mirbat costs from £1352pp.

This southern area of Dhofar can be dived from October to May, and Regaldive reports a “huge range of vastly unknown dive-sites, wrecks, unusual kelp forests and marine life including dolphins, sharks, octopus, turtles and the occasional humpback whale.”

£1352pp covers flights, transfers and B&B (two sharing). The three-day dive-pack costs from £136pp.
