Al Mughsail Beach
Al Mughsayl Beach (also spelt 'Mughsail') can be found in southern Oman in the city of Salalah. Unlike Al Qurum beach, it is relatively untouched with fewer crowds and less commercial activity. In the summers, it is a wonderful place for sunbathing. In the monsoons, the waves are known to explode through blowholes in the partially-collapsed caves just off the beach.
From the cliffs, you can get a pretty view looking towards the Yemen border. Across the beach's 7 kilometres coastline, you can find flora such as banana trees and coconut grooves that give it a laid-back vibe. Close to this beach is a twisting road repeating into itself called 'Furious Road' for thrill seekers.
Al Qurum Beach

Being in the capital city, Al Qurum beach is one of the busiest beaches in Oman, which makes it close to shopping centers, restaurants and other attractions. With its large beaches, visitors can enjoy long beach walks and playing in the sparkling sand.
Located around 28 km from the city centre Muscat, Yiti Beach is one of the secluded and lesser-known beaches in Oman.

The beach has gorgeous soft sand and clear waters with fishing, swimming, camping, and simple day-trip picnic opportunities available.

Yiti Beach does not have many facilities, but it remains attractive for its rustic charm.
Not only is Khalouf Beach a popular fishing spot for locals, but it has recently become a tourist spot.

You might just catch a sighting of eagles and even flamingos at this beach.
