Muscat: Al Mouj Area

Creative Commons 3.0: Salah Almhamdi

Al Mouj is an upscale residential community in the Seeb area, near the airport. There are hotels, dining, and a very international feel. It’s a nice neighborhood for running, with beautiful boulevards and landscaped walkways, a scenic marina, and a waterside linear park. It’s easy to put together a nice ~5 mile route within this area. We’ve mapped a route, but you can create your own too.

Google Street View

Start with a ~1 km loop around Al Mouj Island Park. Then head toward the beach, turning LEFT on Street 6 (the main road), and run for 1 km out to the marina. Then head down Al Mouj St., away from the water, and head back east for 2 km along the plam-lined paths of Al Mouj Linear Park, as far as the golf course. Return via residential streets or back through the park.

Add-Ons: Just east if Al Mouj, the waterfront promenade runs for 12 km from Al Hail North Beach to Seeb Beach.

 

Essentials
  • ~7-8 km (4-5 miles)
