    The Wadi is amazing. Its desert meets tropical climate meets fresh water meets mountains. Really nice temperature to swim in as well. Even in the summer months! What I don't see here is guidance that the water is actually quite deep. Reaching over 3 meters at some points so recommended that you are a decent swimmer.

    beautiful place. Rent a car before you go there - amazing colors for the water. Don't go during Eid season since it was very crowded, we couldn't swim in the water.
    make sure to go early morning, we went around noon, and it was very hot.
    Ladies should wear conservative clothes (not above the knee, and no spaghetti straps)

    make sure to make a stop later to "Fins" beach, it's very close to the sinkhole.

    This definitely is one of the best beaches in Muscat and having a long walk there feels therapeutic. Anytime of the day is suitable to visit this place and is also lined with fine cafes which makes it even better.

    A great experience when you travel to Muscat.. The drive from Muscat to Qantab itself is great, and once you reach the beach its quite unique in its views.
    Boating is available for those who like that. Avoid summer as its typically hot.

    These mountains reach 3,000 meters above sea level. Spread amongst the desert and semi-desert, they form a rocky green island on the sandy sea. It is amazing to ride these mountains. Short one-day trips to the deep canyons are amazing. I don't know if you can go there on a trek of several days, if so it would be great to come there. Absolutely Hajjar Mountains must see.

    This is really a lovely place. Many amazing fishes. Our highlight was a very close feeding of penguins. Even the aquarium is smaller than in Dubai. It was nice. It is tricky to find. Even TripAdvisor does not know the Mall of Muscat:-(. You need to look for Oman Aquarium.

    Al Ansab wetland is a tucked away, requires a taxi or car to reach and is nestled next to a water treatment works. Doesn't sound attractive does it!? Don't be put off. In 2 hours I saw more species of plant and animal at this site then in the rest of Muscat combined. If you're looking for a manicured tourist experience this isn't for you. Although the paths are good, the landscaping attractive and the bird hides are comfortable, regular benches and view points also help. You even get a lift round part of the reserve in a 4 x 4 (must book on the Haya water website before arriving). However, if you want to see a model for how heavy industry/development and biodiverse wildlife may coexist - this is the place to come. Why don't we see more of this type of initiative in Oman and everywhere?!

    a gourgeous vally with resonable watrer level. it is a breath taking place. you need a very good guide and a driver to take you there. I do not recommend staying until late in the evening and you should leave when there is still light i.e before sun set. if you suffer a desk or back pain don't go.

    The wave or (Al Mouj) is a residential project or community consists of villas and apartments with different designs for every phase but what makes this place special the great combination it has transferred it from residential community to public one because it marked by:
    First of all The location, it is near to everything even the airport
    Second Sea View and the marina for Yauchts
    Third a unique collection of restaurants with good quality and view
    Fourth including 2 hotels Kempinski and Mysk both of them are great and have a breakfast buffet in Ramadan
    Fifth include Gulf Club so if you have this hobby or want to learn it it is so easy now
    Sixth include a small mall consists of hypermarket, pharmacy, magic plants for kids, vet clinic, nursery, beauty salon, medical center, so you will find what you need without going outside
    Last but not least Events there are many events launch like Marathons starting point launches from there and Saturday market or (souq el sabt) it is a market established in the walk area every Saturday in winter months only you can find many people present their products, bands playing music, some kids plays

    All of these make it a perfect place to visit
