Enjoy the sunshine and the swim at Yiti Beach

December 27, 2021

Just 28-kilometres from the centre of Muscat, lies Yiti Beach, the perfect place for an escape from the hectic city life. Accessible by a steeply sloping road that would otherwise be obscure if not for the sign that points to the beach, Yiti is unlike the other places where the surf meets the sand in the Sultanate.

One of the must visit tourist spots of Muscat Yiti beach is the place where the clear turquoise blue sea against the golden sands and craggy cliffs create a perfect setting for someone who wants to relax. While the sand itself is of a darker and coarser nature than that found on other beaches in Oman, the beach alone is not the only place to create fond memories on your trip there.

The twisting, turning mountain passes, for example, that take you there, crossing little hamlets outside Muscat proper as they do so, are truly an example of symbiosis between human architecture and natural wonders.

These settlements also offer the perfect rest stop for those who are looking to stretch their legs, as well as soak up a bit more of the local culture and experience some more of its history. Before the advances of modern technology, the long, winding mountain paths were defended by fortresses and watch towers placed at regular intervals.

According to the Ministry of Tourism, “The Yiti Beach, located beyond the village of Yiti, is a small beach – about one kilometre long – that can be easily reached by car. Frequented by locals as well as tourists, it is a great spot to enjoy barbecues, camping, and fishing.”

The ministry added, “The sand takes on an orange hue and the water changes to a deeper blue as the sun sets and the light changes. Lay on the rocks overlooking the beach at twilight or find an area along the strip of soft sand. The weekends bring revellers to the area, enjoying the sunshine and swimming with music and drinks, long into the evening, with some even sticking it out and camping overnight.”
