The frankincense port town of Mirbat is one of Oman's more hidden gems and visitors arrive to the sight of two miniature horse statues sitting atop a pair of columns. They act as a reminder of the history of the place, which was once a centre for breeding Arabian steeds.

Highlights of the town include a small fort, complete with hexagonal tower and views along the coast, an old harbour and fishing boat littered sandy cove. Wandering around the old town is a pleasant experience, with one and two-storey cuboid houses built in typical Dhofari style and painted in shades of dull blue, white and orange.

The main street continues with the charming theme and features some interesting little shops. Each one has been painted a different colour and many feature smart green shutters. Keen divers can enjoy excursions into the sea from Mirbat, with a small reef just offshore.
