Barka is a coastal city in the region Al Bāţinah, in northern Oman.
The town is emerging as a tourist resort. Nearby is Bait Na'aman (Nu'man), a four-towered fort of the 17th-century iman Bil'arab bin Sultan, renovated in 1991.
The town is also known for "bull butting," a pushing contest between specially raised great Brahmin bulls, and for its halwa confectionery.
