Sour, gem of the Oman towns - Oman

Special feature Oman: Sour, gem of the Oman towns

Sour, gem of the Oman towns
Even if there is an average 4-hour drive from the capital Mascate, Sour is a stop you cannot miss, above all for its natural setting. The ocean covers the low lands, forming a lagoon that separates the centre of Sour from the village of Al Ayja. The crossing by rowing boat only lasts a few minutes. As for its architecture, the white houses found on the sea front shine bright and have carved wood balconies. And finally its atmosphere. The wind from the sea brings smells of salt and algae, while goats walk around the sandy streets, sometimes perched right at the top of a staircase, as if striking a pose. A town to visit at the end of the afternoon, when the sunset gives an ochre tone to the fašades and the shades stretch along the ground.
