On the flight to Khasab I read in Lonely Planet that there were NO taxis available at Khasab airport. Potential disaster, because the airport is quite a way from the town. What to do???
We had of course made no arrangements at all, not even a hotel booking.
So after landing, I arranged my face into the most 'helpless little female look' and decided to enquire about a ride from any of the drivers of pre-arranged hotel pick-ups. The Omanis from up north are a great deal more friendly than Muscat area.
A kind gentleman was on his mobile phone in an instant- arranging not only for a pick up for us, but helping us with accommodation. He was actually the rep for Khasab Travel. I asked for his card, and next day we arranged with him for a Dhow trip to the khors(fjords).
So.......BE WARNED- ARRANGE YOUR OWN PICK UP AT AIRPORT.

We arrived in Khasab with a confirm reservation on the speed boat to Muscat,
we learned that it has been cancelled without notice !
Unique Suggestions: There is now a daily flight from Khasab to Mascat
(if the weather is cooperating)..
not flying when there is too strong wind.

In Musandam, this open plain with a large stand of acacia trees and a little playground is a picnic spot in the "in the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king" kind of way. It's mildly pleasant, and there are plenty of shady spots to park your car and break out the lounge chairs and picnic basket for a spell. A nice breeze blows through. This is one of the very few spots in the whole area that have any permanent, natural greenery. As such it is a haven for birds, which are plentiful and varied. I stayed for hours, wandering around with my binoculars and "Birds of the Middle East" field guide, but most of the people I saw there just drove in for a short stay.
To get here, drive south out of Khasab on the one road that exists (signs point to Dibba). At the fork in the road where the Dibba road heads off to the right, stay left on the well-paved road. Al-Khalidiyah is about 12 km from there. It is where the paved road simply ends--drive onto the dirt plain to your right and just pick a place to park.
