    The Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque

    Oman
    4.5
    7 reviews

    A must see - despite my scepticism on this spend thrift trend of building mosques on the grand scale, I have to admit that this is something special. Most likely the Abu Dhabi mosque cost more to build but it is not a patch on the class and quality of finish on display. Best time is to visit in the ...

    Wahiba Sands

    4.5
    3 reviews

    Wahiba Sands ticks all the boxes you'd expect when dreaming of old Arabia (and a few surprises too). There's the stark beauty of the seemingly endless stretch of giant copper colored sand dunes, desert camping (done luxuriously if you so desire), bedouins, camels, dune bashing and sand boarding. All this at just a couple of hours from Muscat and why ...

    Bahla Fort

    Tanuf Oman (40 km west of Muscat)
    4
    3 reviews

    Amongst Omanis, Bahla is famous for its djinn i.e., genies and Bahla Fort is like Times Central as far as genie hangouts are concerned. Seems the local djinn don't take too kindly to the good intentions of the teams trying to reconstruct the north wall of the castle. Every time a new stone is put in place, it's mysteriously back ...

    3.5
    3 reviews

    Pleasant souk in Mutrah. Most of what's sold is for locals or is tourist kitsch but, if you look hard enough, there are a few gems to be found.

    2 reviews

    Wadi Daykah, a.k.a., Hotel California is a killer 130 meter high crag with 7 bolted routes (some with bolted belays for toprope or trad climbing) just an hour and a half from Muscat. Heaps of potential for mapping out new routes and leaving your mark here. After a good session go for a dip in Oman’s one and only lake ...

    Marjan Beach

    Ras Al Hamra (next to PDO)
    4
    2 reviews

    Marjan Beach is Muscat's best kept secret. There's a coral reef just off shore that teems with school of fish, turtles and cuttlefish - very popular with illegal spear fishers. The coast here is rocky, the water clear and the sand like sugar - none of that powdery stuff you find on most of the other beaches around Muscat. There's ...

    Nizwa Fort

    Nizwa, Oman
    4
    2 reviews

    Attractive fort on the way to Jebel Sham. The exhibit area won't generate much excitement but the rest of the fort is enjoyable and upper levels offer a nice view.

    Nizwa Souq

    Nizwa, Oman
    4
    2 reviews

    Atmospheric souq with a particularly good array of clay pottery. Silver prices are very high due to the large number of tourists. The gun stores are a bit unsettling but entertaining.

    Zubair Automotive

    If you're looking for a 4x4 rental to explore all the Sultanate has to offer, Zubair Automotive is a reliable place to do so. You may find cheaper places to rent an SUV from but they won't have the reputation to uphold that Zubair does. With standing comes responsibility which is exactly what you want in your off-road vehicle.

    Attractive beach flanked by hills in front of the Al Bustan Palace. Most easily accessed by staying at the hotel or eating at the beachfront restaurant. The surf is relatively calm and good for bathing. The water is turquoise but the sand is brown. The only services available are through the hotel. There is no shade on the beach itself ...
