After a Hard Day Fishing…

Al Athaiba beach; small fishing boats bringing in the days catch

Probably one of the most scenic football pitches in Muscat with a view of Fahal Island

A short walk along Al Athaiba beach in Muscat brought home the feeling of family. A group of Omanis prepped to play their afternoon game of football on the sand, a father and son played cricket, and a family helped their father clean the fishing boat that had just been pulled back onto the shore.

Al Athaiba beach front felt like a working beach, where the small fishing boats arrive home after a day in the Gulf of Oman and nets are fixed after snagging on a coral below, but it also felt more about the families that rely on the sea.
