Let's go to the beach... Oman style... I have mixed feelings about htis beach... it's long and beautiful, with very little people - the water is clear but, due to the dark colour of the sand, it's quite dark. Definitely not the tropical-like beach I was expecting. On the plus side, in Muscat the sea is alive with all sorts of sea creatures: shells, starfish, fish and seasnakes... and zillions of seagulls.
I wouldn't say that it's a good beach to swim, but it's a perfect one for long sunset walks... it seems like many ex-pats felt the same way - as most of the people we met were brits. The beach is also great to watch the fishermen come to the shore and unload their boats surrounded by the zillions of seagulls mentioned before

Address: shatti al qurm
Directions: it's the beach in the mebassy area
