Fodor's Review

Across the freeway from Al Riyam Park, home to the iconic incense burner monument, just between the historic neighborhood of Mutrah and old Muscat, a restored Portuguese watchtower sits atop a towering cliff overlooking the sea and the two historic neighborhoods. The steep staircase leading up to the watchtower is accessible just behind Al-Inshirah Restaurant. It is a great place to get some exercise, as the climb is rigorous, and it offers one of the best views in the city.
