Al Suwadi Beach is a long, attractive stretch of sand about an hour out of Muscat, with an elegant watchtower keeping its eye on the coastline here. The tower is on an island that you can walk across to in low tide, but beware the rapidity of the return tide.
Before stopping off here on return to Muscat, I had read about the pink beach and its mass of pink shells, and was disappointed not to detect much pinkness as I wandered along.
If you look really closely at the shells, there is a hint of pink, but it’s not that obvious.
However, my colour disappointment was overcome by this charming fisherman who was happy to be photographed as he threw his net. He even sang us a song.
And then, just as I was leaving I found the pink I had hoped for!
