Quad Bikes at Bousher Dunes. A towering sand dune in central Muscat is a popular destination for 4x4 enthusiasts who don't feel like making the three-hour journey to Wahiba Sands to get their kicks on the weekends. It is fun to go and watch the boys in their Jeeps, FJ Cruisers, and Xterras queue up and take runs at the wall of sand. For kids and those without off-road vehicles, lines of ATVs (called quad bikes here) are available for hourly rental. Smaller models are available for children. The powerful toys easily ascend the sand dune, and the views of Muscat from the top are really lovely. Al Maha St., Bousher, Muscat, Masqat. 9555–5901. From 3 rials per hour.
