is located on the lush Batinah coast and lapped by
the calm waters of the Gulf of Oman. The coastal plain
of rich agriculture land and palm -fringed beaches
is often described as the “breadbasket of Oman”.
The quaint town owns much to the fishing and farming
industries around it. A visit to the fish souk is
a must for visitors. Early morning and early evening

tourists. The town retains it’s old fashioned
charm, successfully combing the traditional Omani
way of life with its twentieth century needs .At it’s
heart lies a beautiful restored fort, and a magnificent
Corniche sweeps the coast.

the countryside. Located close to Sohar are ancient

fortified towns of Ibri, Nakhl, Rustaq and Nizwa.
Sohar every third Friday afternoon in the winter month,
holds a series of bullfights. Unlike its European
equivalent, this version is completely bloodless,
as bulls pit their strength against one another. The
winner pushes the loser from the ring. The scramble
as these magnificent, agile beasts come too close
to the audience or even break loose, can be as entertaining
as the “fight”.
