Things To Do on Muscat Holidays

Muscat means 'anchorage' so it comes as no surprise to learn that the sea is one of the main reasons that many people visit Muscat and when it comes to water sports and activities, the capital pulls out all the stops. Dolphin watching (the warm waters of the Arabian Sea are home to playful pods of dolphins), dhow trips, diving (there are plenty of world class diving locations off Muscat's coastline) and snorkelling are all on offer.


Ready for some culture? When Prince Charles was in Muscat he made a beeline for Bait Al Zubair museum and for a real insight into Oman, you'd be wise to do the same. Here you can learn about Omani heritage and Bedouin traditions through the excellent displays of photographs, costumes and other handicrafts and household items. While you're at it, check out the souk and Sultan Qaboos' waterside palace - the blue and gold mushroom pillars are certainly striking, if not to everyone's taste. Work off all the hummus and halloumi you've consumed with a walk along the attractive cornice - it's especially spectacular at sunset.

But if you would rather just fly and flop, rest assured that there are plenty of spots to plonk your towel and make the most of Muscat's wonderfully warm weather.
