Yiti Beach near Muscat, Oman 07 Apr 2017
About this photo
Jagged rocks formed by sea salt winds and waves stick out of the Gulf of Oman creating the sheltered bay of Yiti Beach. Just 28-kilometres from the centre of Muscat, the beach is known as a place of solitude and relaxation – an escape from the hectic city.
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. Add a trip to Yiti Beach to any of Insight Guides' trips to Oman (just don't forget your swimsuit!).
