Welcome to Qurayat

The town was once an important port, famous for exporting horses that were reared on the surrounding plains. Sacked by the Portuguese in the 16th century, the town never regained its importance, although it retains a lively fishing industry and is celebrated for its basket makers. The porous baskets are made from local mangrove, and are used for keeping bait fresh aboard the small boats that pack the harbour.
