    As a non-muslim tourist, entry times are restricted, so check first - It's beautiful, extravagant, huge and offers the chance to understand a little more of the faith.

    The Wadi is amazing. Its desert meets tropical climate meets fresh water meets mountains. Really nice temperature to swim in as well. Even in the summer months! What I don't see here is guidance that the water is actually quite deep. Reaching over 3 meters at some points so recommended that you are a decent swimmer.

    beautiful place. Rent a car before you go there - amazing colors for the water. Don't go during Eid season since it was very crowded, we couldn't swim in the water.
    make sure to go early morning, we went around noon, and it was very hot.
    Ladies should wear conservative clothes (not above the knee, and no spaghetti straps)

    make sure to make a stop later to "Fins" beach, it's very close to the sinkhole.

    This definitely is one of the best beaches in Muscat and having a long walk there feels therapeutic. Anytime of the day is suitable to visit this place and is also lined with fine cafes which makes it even better.

    We stopped here on a cruise excursion that combined a tour of the city center with a stop at the Souq. As an amateur photographer I found the combination of old and new worlds to be interesting subjects. My suggestion: travel light. My DSLR with a zoom lens was a great choice. The city center shots needed speed due to the motion of the bus. The choice of zoom lens made for easy and quick grab shots. As always watch for distracting reflections in bus windows. look ahead to be prepared for opportunities. Ps: we traveled here just before the pandemic hit.

    A great experience when you travel to Muscat.. The drive from Muscat to Qantab itself is great, and once you reach the beach its quite unique in its views.
    Boating is available for those who like that. Avoid summer as its typically hot.

    The Sifah beach is a great location for camping. The white beach is a treat for the eyes and a great location for an outing with family or friends. The beach is also suitable for a swim depending on the tidal variations. There are certain sections of the beach that are cordoned off for development activities. Run a check before occupying the location to avoid inconvenience
