Yitti Beach, Muscat Overview

Located around 28 kms from the city centre Muscat, Yiti Beach is one of the secluded and lesser known beaches in Oman. It is well-known as a camping site outside the city of Muscat with small cliffs, coves, rocky edges, and a fairly isolated environment that’s ideal for parties or couples who’d enjoy their privacy. The beach has gorgeous soft sand and clear waters with fishing, swimming, camping, and simple day-trip picnic opportunities available.

Admittedly off the beaten track, Yitti Beach is a wonderful, lesser-known beach to explore in Oman. There’s also a fishing village nearby where one can interact with the locals and rent a boat. At sunset, Yiti Beach is ideal for long walks to watch the sun go down at the horizon in an array of red and orange colors. Sunrises at the beach are equally beautiful. Yiti Beach doesn’t have many facilities, but it remains attractive for its rustic charm.

Things to Do at Yiti Beach

Swimming: The beach has warm, calm waters that are ideal for swimming. Families with children will be content with the peaceful waters here, but keep an eye on little ones as the waters can get deep. During low tide, one can find a couple of lagoons in the rock-faces away from the rougher main sea.

Water Sports: There are fishing, kayaking, and paddleboard facilities on Yiti Beach. However, since there are no rental services, the equipment for these sports have to be carried.

Camping: The beach is most popular as a camping spot. The large, open spaces are perfect for pitching a tent, starting a bonfire, and getting the party started. However, one has to bring all the equipment, including water and food as there are no eateries here. Keep in mind that there’s no public toilet either.
