The general region of Muscat is best known for being home to Oman's capital city. Not only does it offer a commercial buzz to the culture, with shops and art in abundance, but within close proximity are some other more nature inspired resorts. One of these is Al Sawadi, which is about 60 minutes drive from the airport and is most notable for its picturesque beach that is a scatter with seashells and white sand.
The waters here are great for water sports, offering perfect temperatures and clear surfaces. Turtles and whales even swim around these parts, which makes for an exciting scuba experience!
Muscat city is a strong personality amongst the space, with its tall spires and domes silhouetted boldly against the sunset, marking a skyline of eastern mystique and beauty. The mixture of the old and the new combine to create an atmosphere that is in a time of its own, unique to anywhere else with its history incorporated into the modern facilities. You can wander around the trendy shops, eat in fancy restaurants and finish the night in lavish, lively bars all the while wandering down narrow streets scattered with traditional houses and historical architecture, stopping in markets selling handcrafts and other souvenirs.
