Fodor's Expert Review Qurum Beach
Muscat Beach Free
Located on the so-called "Love Street" this small beach remains relatively empty during the week but is bustling on the weekends and in the evenings, when young Omanis like to cruise the street showing off their cars and motorcycles. The water is calm and good for swimming, and often there are men offering Jet Ski rentals. On the short boardwalk along Shati Street you'll find two restaurants and two coffee shops with restrooms and free Wi-Fi, albeit with rather expensive food offerings for what you get. Expect to pay for the view and the convenience. After the sun sets, a mishkak stand appears in the parking lot at the far northern end of the beach serving skewers of barbecued beef and squid. Amenities: food and drink; parking (free); water sports. Best for: sunset; walking.
