Sur is a historic city located in the north-east of Oman, on the shores of the Gulf of Oman. Historically, Sur was a stopover port for sailors and pirates heading to Africa. Sitting between a lagoon and the mountainous foothills of Al Hajar ash Sharqi, Sur is renowned for its port and shipyards near the charming village of Al-Ayga, where the famous traditional dhows come out. The coastal road is beautifully dotted with fishing villages and magnificent beaches, so if you’re exploring the coast then be sure not to miss the returning fishermen at the Quiryat fish auction.
