The gentle city of Muscat is a pleasure to explore, scenically wedged between mountains and the coast, with ancient forts and fine museums, an opera house and flower-filled parks. Its name means ‘safe anchorage’ and to this day the sea plays an important role in urban life, supporting the seafood industry and providing tourists with opportunities to swim from sandy beaches or dive in nearby lagoons with turtles.
