The serene waters and the chirping of birds are just the right company for a relaxed day where in the lap of virgin nature, Bandar Al Khyran sits quietly.

If you are looking for fresh air and the purity of nature which can rejuvenate your body and soul head straight to Bandar Al Khyran, a picturesque spot within easy reach if you happen to live in Muscat.

Located 25km southeast of Muscat Bandar Al Khyran is a haven of tidal creeks and sheltered bays fringed in places by dense growth of mangroves. The place is beyond Yiti which can now be reached in a much lesser time if you take the road to Yiti from Barr Al Jissah roundabout. Otherwise, the normal route is to go from Hamriya roundabout and take the Yiti road.

Bandar Al Khyran is really quiet in every sense. Green environs, complemented by the placid water and framed by the copper-coloured mountains, make a delightful experience. Yiti and Sifah, both scenic coastal villages, fall on the route if you are coming from Hamriya roundabout and thus you can combine this trip with the two exciting places.

Most visitors to Bandar Al Khyran are awestruck by its serene charm and the slow pace of life. If you are lucky you will spot spinner dolphins which are found between Fahal island and Bandar Khayran.

People from far off places, and especially from the Capital Region, regularly visit Bandar Al Khyran for camping, diving and snorkelling. What soothes one's eyes is the calmness of the area. No sound pollution, no vehicle pollution, no traffic jams... you feel you are in a different world where serenity reigns.

It is the largest semi-enclosed bay, surrounded by steep rocky hills and cliffs, on the western coast of Oman with an area of approximately 4 sqkm. This island separates the western side from the open sea forming two narrow channels serving as the main inlets to the bay. The maximum depth of the bay is around 16 metres.

Besides serving as a rich habitat for mangroves, fish and corals, it is also home to turtles and nesting birds such as the white-cheeked tern, osprey and heron. More than 200 fish species, most of which are coral fish, and about 40 coral genera live in the bay. Local fishermen will provide boat rides for those interested in venturing into the calm waters of Bandar AI Khyran.

How to go: Bandar Khayran can be reached both by boat and by road. It lies beyond Yiti and Al Sifah. From Hamriya roundabout take the Yiti road and reach Sifah. Further down after Sifah a small bay that cuts deep into the coastline unfolds before you. And you reach Bandar AI Khyran. A new road from Barr Al Jissah roundabout takes you to Yiti which saves considerable amount of time.

What to do: Camping, boating, snorkelling, scuba diving, picnicking.
