If you are a nature lover then you should not miss visiting this place. Remember though to take all your food water with you as there are no restaurants available. There are public toilets. There are very nice places to have a picnic and if you like to explore you can go to the near by village.

Travelled 90 minutes to visit this place but was bit dissapointing as coundnt even find a good restaurant nearby. On the positive side there is a good park to relax and some of the views are photogenic

On ablazy Friday with the need to go out , a great place for nature lovers. A June visit us not probably the best choice, but if you go early you can find a good shaded spot. The other choice is an early evening visit for a BBQ escape. I have been here in the winter when the water levels were great for a good dip.

One hour drive from Muscat Quiret Dam is worth every kilometer. Good close look at the dam , the water storage and the green lawns and Dates Tree are a treat to the eyes . Drive to the Dam is itself a treat for the person who love driving in hilly terrain. Worth the visit in both the said counts.

This is a good place if you want a little side trip and short stop-over. The roads were a bit steep for a small car. It's a bit breezy when you get at the top. There's a small park and cafe enough to relax, have some snacks and take some photos. For me who enjoys driving steep and winding roads, this is an A+

Disappointing. Visted in March 2018 - water very low, cafe dreadful. Some nice views from the observation area. Very hot. Ok as a toilet stop if you are passing on the Muscat to Sur road, but not worth a special trip (at this time of year)

The views from the dam are quite nice. The whole area including a picnic area is clean and well maintained. Worth a visit.

Beautiful place to visit and close to the famous Sinkhole.

We went early in the morning so it was quiet and not so busy. Also stopped and tried some Arabic coffee upstairs in the information centre. Very nice people and great views from inside the centre. Don't miss it.

This was a last minute plan on our way from Sur Beach town to Muscat ..it's a little far as a detour but worth it .. the place itself is clean and has a small green turf near the parking for small games , for toddlers to run etc ...the surrounding atmosphere just made it very good and the first sight at the vantage point is breathtaking (the mountains ranges overlap deep , clear sky , blue water with twinkle etc )

A good fun trip and don't be put off by the detour

Great spot to visit to break up the drive between muscat and sur. Nice views from the picnic area in front of the dam. We also explored the small pools of water and the falaj below the dam wall. Quite a bit of litter which was sad to see, but otherwise nice short drive from main road and scenic views with clean public toilets.
