Sidab Coastal Trek (مسار شاطئ سداب) is a trek off the mountains from the fishing village of Sidab (سداب), adjacent to Old Muscat. The trek takes you through the mountains and rugged coastline of the village, passing through a number of absolutely gorgeous beachheads and hills with stunning views throughout, including distant views of the Al Bustan Palace Hotel, and outlines of Muscat Bay at Qantab if you squint enough :D. The trek isn’t straightforward and easy to navigate, with loose rocks and steep slopes increasing the risk of falling down cliffs, and you need to take tide timings into account otherwise you risk being cut off (more on that below), but it is one that I really enjoyed and combines the best of Muscat’s stunning coastline, beaches, and mountains! It is especially remarkable for how remote it feels while being almost adjacent to the Al Alam Palace.
