Visa, beaches, accomodation etc.  (3 Answers)

Hello everyone!

I'll be travelling to Muscat with my boyfriend in the end of August 2006. I have been surfing the net for budget accomodation and came accross the following options that could be potential: Hotel Marina close to fish market and bus station as well as Beach Hotel Muscat and Holiday Villa hotel close to Qurum beach. Any recommendations? However, the contact e-mail addresses that I managed to find don't seem to work so will it be necessary to book the hotel in advance in the end of August or do you think it's just ok to walk in and manage to get a room for about a week's time?

Another question, please: August being a rather hot month in Oman, what beach would you recommend for swimming, and are there any shared microtaxis going to the beaches at all? Is it ok for a western lady to swim only in bikinis or would a t-shirt be recommended in order not to cause any disapprovment in local people?

We are going to travel independently and it is rather difficult to find trustworthy information on visas when entering the country. As far as I have understood, as EU nationals we can buy the tourist visas at the airport but will any photographs or hotel confirmation be needed as well...?

Thank you for further info already in advance :) Looking forward to visiting Oman and Muscat in a few weeks!!!
