We'll start with what Muscat is not. Compared to other cities in North Africa and the Middle East, it is not (with love) as beautiful as Marrakech; as vibrant as Cairo; or as fun as Istanbul, but the Omani capital is still a superb destination thanks to its accessibility, both for sunseekers flying in, and to a range of truly exceptional landscapes and adventures within easy reach of the city. You could easily spend a few days soaking up the sun on the beach or by the pool(s) at a selection of first class hotels on your Muscat holidays, but the city should really be your launchpad for exploration of what makes Oman so special.
Dive the nearby Daymaniyat Islands; spot dolphins from catamaran charters in the Gulf of Oman; spend a night among the dunes in the Wahiba Sands; explore the dramatic Hajar Mountains on a 4x4 safari; haggle in the souq of ancient Nizwa. All these exceptional experiences are possible in one or more night adventures from the the capital.
