This is a great beach for a long walk in the late afternoon. We were in Muscat in November, which seemed to be the perfect time. Keep an eye out for the crabs, frantically digging their holes as you get closer and closer.

Large beach about 1 mile long with wide sweeping waves and sand. Very gentle slopes means that you can wade out a long way and still only be waist deep. Surrounded by several coffee bars, and interesting rock formations.

Just now I came to visit the beach before heading to the airport. It's free for public and you can wear your bathing suits and jump in. You can as well enjoy the view from any of the restaurants or coffee shops .

Probably one of the friendliest and cleanest city I have ever visited. I spent 2 days in Muscat on the way to Vietnam. I took a cab to visit Muscat on the first day, the taxi driver was nice enough to drive me to Qurum Beach amongst many other places. A peaceful and beautiful city. It is ashamed that I... More

it is the beach in the city , so gets crowded very quickly . the area is populated with eateries and is a hotspot at night for lots of people in flashy cars :) there is a grass-covered area behind Intercon, where people can play football.

...for beachgoers otherwise not much to see. Sitting in the Gulf of Oman it has beautiful blue water but no skyline or sights to view. So, sunbathe, swim, engage in water sports, and that's about it.

Just a nice beach for sunset or sunrise walks...can be very busy at certain times. But if you go the right time you can swim in the sea and its like you have the whole place to yourself...

A serene and peacefully quiet beach. Along with other Omani beaches, it is very private and offers a "beach" for every one :-)

I never visit in the summer as it is too hot. My wife and I enjoy December and January the most when we walk 4 or 5 miles each morning between 7 and 11. Usually between 20 and 25 degrees. It is heaven ,friendly faces, police on horseback and fishermen dragging their nets onto the beach. We will be there... More
