Al Khuwair is another unique neighborhood in Muscat with commercial and residential buildings. While you can find many shops, restaurants, cafes, clinics, and medical centers, you can find a few supermarkets and no hospitals. This area is located near Madinat Al Sultan Qaboos, very close to the beach.
