Duqm is an interesting place. Once just a blip on the map with nothing more notable than a reliable petrol station, and an equally reliable biryani shop. Duqm now has almost become a symbol of Oman’s hopes and dreams.
Summers are long in Oman, May through September, and the heat can still continue outside of this period. Even if the temperature isn’t hot, you can expect a considerable amount of sun. Perfect for sunbathing, and laying out by the pool. Muscat has a number of swimming pools in the area that you can enjoy, even if you are not a hotel guest. Below is my list of 12 Muscat area swimming Pools to cool you down and keep you entertained for an afternoon.
One of the qualities I like most about Oman is the small population. You can be 20 minutes outside of Muscat and find yourself, seemingly, the only person for miles. This seclusion gives you the feeling of owning a piece of Oman for yourself, even if it’s just for an afternoon. One such place that makes me the sultan of my own kingdom is As Sifah Secret Beach.
I recently re-visited Khaluf Beach, and I have to say Khaluf Beach is one of the nicest beaches in Oman, and a place that will excite and calm you.
