My review is about getting to this place. I unfortunately could not make it to this beach as it's very far from where I was staying in Alkhuwair (city seasons hotel) about a 30 minute drive. There's no public transportation and one can only get there by car. Unless you rented s car than you'll pay 10-15 rials each way.... More

Qurum beach is a very wide area of beach and sand. Offers great time for family to enjoy watching the kids play and look for sea objects. Best time to visit is early in the morning to enjoy the peace and quiet of the beach.

Its very closer on the way to yiti and Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort, Its very clean and its to swim around and collect some nice pebbles. By the evening time it becomes more enjoyable with more people and children coming in to visit.

this is closer to Muscat on the way to Yiti and Sifah beaches. again due to proximity tends to be crowded. There is a diving facility for those interested.
