Summary of the Beach Inspectors

Qurum Beach is a stretch of sand around four kilometres long in the capital Muscat. Thanks to its good location and transport links it is particularly popular and offers welcome refreshment after a long sightseeing or shopping trip. There are toilets and showers on the beach so you can put your normal clothes back on straight after bathing and there's nothing to stop you heading straight back into the city. It's well worth visiting this beautiful, long beach and taking a walk along it.

Qurum Beach - The capital's most beautiful beach

Qurum Beach is Muscat's longest and most beautiful beach. It is situated right in the capital, is very easy to reach and at four kilometres long, offers enough space for everyone. I particularly liked the fine sand on Qurum Beach and the easy access from Muscat.

As is usual in Oman, most beach-goers travel by car. The road lies directly behind the beach, although the noise doesn't cause any disturbance, and there are plenty of free parking spaces along it. If all the parking spaces on the beach front to the east are full there are lots more to the west. Whilst the road connection is practical, it's not exactly idyllic.

The colour of the sand on Qurum Beach is difficult to describe, but light brown-grey suits the fine stretch of sand well. Small shells are washed up on the beach, but not enough to be irritating. The water is very clear with no springs, sea urchins, sharp stones or pieces of glass so you can go in comfortably without beach shoes. The waves are small on Qurum Beach, which lies on the Gulf of Oman, and the tides don't cause any great variations in water level.

Small-scale sports activities like jet skiing, para-sailing and canoeing can be booked at the beach at prices that are standard for the region. Snorkelling trips or dives can also be booked here but they take place in a different section of water.

There's plenty of good food and drink available in the various restaurants and snack bars. To the far west there are some premium resorts. Unfortunately you can't access the beaches belonging to these resorts, but even outside this area there's still plenty of space on the beach to use as you please. Nude bathing should be avoided in Oman. ;)
