This stretch of sand is well within the city limits. Located just off the Shatih-Al-Qurum region, this beach sees hundreds of people visit every day, both locals and tourists. One can always see people exercising on the pathway that runs parallel to the beach. The open expanse of water and rip-tides don’t make it an ideal place to swim. The beach sees some spectacular sunsets and one can see hundreds of people taking in the tranquil atmosphere so close to the city center.
The Muscat Municipality recently redeveloped the approach and back area of the beach, by culturing a beautiful lawn that runs parallel to the beach. On weekends one can see families enjoys a barbeque or tossing a Frisbee around on the grass, while the young boys and men set up goal post and play football along the entire length of the beach. If you are looking for peace and quiet on a weekend, this is not the beach for you.
There are several shisha parlours along this beach where one can take in the sunset while puffing on fruit flavored molasses in the early evening air.
