    Muscat Hills

    4
    1 review

    If you happen to find yourself in the Sultanate of Oman and fancy a round of golf, Muscat Hills will hook you up with 18 holes and golf cart for 50 Omani Rials (you've gotta rent your clubs too if you forgot them at home). Despite the fact that it looks like worker's quarters, the clubhouse is well appointed with ...

    Attractive fort overlooking the Sultan's Palace. I wasn't able to find a way to the top; however, it would have good views of the palace grounds.

    Wadi Dham

    1 review

    A fern-gully in the middle of the desert? Cascading pools of mountain spring water? Only in Wadi Dhum will you find such aquatic delights. Pack a picnic and your bathing suit (modest swimwear recommended). From Bat, counter-intuitively follow the signs for Wadi Hajar (signs for Wadi Dhum don’t appear until you’re actually there). Once you are, whistle your way up ...

    Misfat Al Abreen

    1 review

    Misfat Al Abreen is Oman's little rocky version of the Garden of Eden. Bananas, mangos, papaya and date palms abound in the little town perched precariously upon row upon row of terraced mountainside high above the parched valley floor below. Thanks to the ingenious Persians who first introduced the irrigation system known locally as falaj, Misfat Al Abreen is a ...

    fahal island

    1 review

    A popular and very conveniently located diving destination. The water is plankton rich so visibility is around 10m or less. But this also means a higher chance of seeing larger sea animals.

    5 o'clock slab

    1 review

    Just a 5 minute drive up the vertiginous Al Amerat Road towards Wadi Adai you’ll find a slab of limestone known as 5 O’ Clock Rock. If you’ve got a 4x4 and don’t feel like muleing your gear up to the crag yourself , you can drive right up to the base of these four sport routes equipped with 10mm ...

    Bat

    1 review

    Fire your romantic notions of Indiana Jones by volunteering at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Bat (92933829; bat_restoration@yahoo.de; Jan-March). The international teams of archeologists love the outside company – they’re as curious about why you’re in Oman as you are about archeology. Give them the inside scoop and you’ll be handed one (and told where to put it too).

    Kubrah Canyon

    4
    1 review

    Just an hour from the traffic jammed capital of Muscat you’ll realize just how sparsely populated Oman actually is. Aside from the occasional goat herder leading his flock back to the village of Hassaanat, Kubrah Canyon a.k.a. ‘Secret Canyon’ you’re be all alone (and that means no helicopters of mountain emergency service if you hit a snag). Kubrah Canyon is ...

    Hadash

    4
    1 review

    At 1500 meters above sea level, Hadash is blessed with cool mountain air, amazing views of Wadi Mistal, seclusion (1 km from the nearest village), lots of northerly shade and good quality Prepermian limestone rock. That alone should make any climber happy. Add a buttload of bolted sport climbs of varied difficulty at spots such as the Sulfureuse Crag, the ...

    Al Hajeer Coffeeshop

    4
    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 ...

    La Gorgette

    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+). ...

    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.

    Wonderfully picturesque stone village in an oasis near Jebel Shams. Please be respectful and don't photograph bathing locals. The women here now have restricted bathing times because of aggressive photography by tourists.

    Sultan's Palace

    2 reviews

    You can't help but feel a bit of 1970s nostalgia when you gaze at the palace. You almost expect to see Jimmy Carter sitting on the steps. Worth a quick stop if you are close by but not particularly spectacular.

    Camel Racing – Boys to ‘Bots

    2
    2 reviews

    Camel racing is to the Arabian Peninsula what stock-car racing was to the American South fifty years ago: heralded by locals but laughed at by outsiders. In the west, the term ‘camel jockey’ has pejorative, if not racist connotations. In Oman, it often meant a minor kidnapped or sold into slavery. These boys, some as young as 2 ½ years ...

    Pleasant seaside railway and pedestrian walkway connecting Mutrah to Old Muscat. A nice way to walk between the two. Most major sights are along this corridor.
