Quriyat Tours

Quriyat (also spelled Qurayyat) is a small coastal town near Muscat. The city’s past is defined by the violent resistance to Portuguese invasion, though these days it’s more of a quiet fishing village. The main draw for most visitors is the Quriyat Fort, which sits right in the middle of town. Check out the large wooden doors and old artillery. 

There are beaches, a small souk, an old Shareestha tree, a large mangrove swamp and a seaside corniche to explore. At the end of the corniche lies the small harbor, which historically was a major Omani sea port and today is the center of the fishing action. Many boats sit on the surrounding sand, looking up at the fort and castle above. There are also grand views of the town and natural surrounding area from the nearby Quriyat Dam.

Practical Info

Quriyat is around 80 kilometers from Muttrah, about a 45-minute drive from Ruwi. To enter the road exit the main highway at the Wadi Aday roundabout. It is 120 kilometers from Sur.
