    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 ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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.

    Al Marjan

    Al Bustan Palace Hotel, Muscat, Oman

    Sumptuous bar at the Al Bustan Palace Hotel. Quiet but indulgent. The inside is more attractive than the terrace. For a water view, go to the beachfront bar.

    La Gorgette

    Bilad Sayt

    1 review

    The climbing is consistently the steepest in Oman’s sport climbing selection, with warm ups consisting of jugs and ledge hopping to get your balance in check. Once the forearms are tenderized, 3 stellar 6c’s rise 30m to the left before the canyon forks (Take the left fork after a slippery scramble to try your nerves on quite exposed Giraffe 6b+). ...

    Al Hajeer Coffeeshop

    Ibra, Oman

    1 review

    Come sundown, slide into the semi-seedy Al-Hajeer Coffeeshop for a taste of Cairo. Along with Cheshire smiles, the Egyptian-staff serve a mean sheesha (a giant water-pipe of improbable flavors). Swimming in a banana, grape or jasmine cloud of tobacco, pleasantly numb, a Lebanese pop-song blasts from one TV, the latest football-match from another; a discussion heats-up over backgammon and you ...

    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

    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.

    Mutrah Souq

    Mutrah, Muscat, Oman
    3.5
    3 reviews

    As old time Arabia as it gets in rapidly developing Muscat, this souq has been in use since well before the Portuguese fortified Mutrah's crescent shaped harbor with forts. As well as European architectural influence, there's the Intricate and colorful Persian style along the corniche and in the facade of a rare Shia mosque hidden in the back alleyways. Be ...

    Sunset Dhow Cruise

    1 review

    A couple of companies run sunset dhow cruises. I did one with Sidab Sea Tours. A dhow cruise is a great way to get perspective on the coast line and one of the best ways to see Muscat's many seaside forts. My 2.5 hour jaunt was perfect. We headed south to Al Bustan then North to Mutrah. Got a good ...
