Qurum Beach & Natural Park

The family-friendly Qurum Natural Park along with the nearby outstretched beach make for a wonderful summertime day trip. The park is well-maintained, and features kids’ play areas aimed at various age groups. Food stalls are scattered around the park, and a few restaurants operate in close proximity to the beach.

Do & See

Muscat's geographical positioning in close proximity to the sea, desert and mountains provides visitors with an endless list of possible activities. With natural beauty, beach resorts, an emerging cultural scene (facilitated much by the recently constructed Royal Opera House) and historical relics, the nation's capital is guaranteed to keep travelers busy both on land (mosques, forts and souqs) and at sea (dolphin-watching tours and snorkeling, to name a few).
