This was a lovely, relaxing stroll combined with a visit to the lively Muttrah Souq. We visited late afternoon when it was slightly cooler. The Al-Hajar Mountains provide a dramatic backdrop against the low-rise old white architecture, Forts, beautiful Mosques and the Sea. We visited the souq and had a meal at one of the nearby restaurants before returning to... More

My first glimpse of the Mutrah Corniche was in the evening. It seemed magical, like i was dropped in the middle of an Alladdin story. We spent a lot of our time in Muscat around Mutrah and the Corniche, the beauty, slow pace and friendliness of people made me fall madly in love with Oman. The walk from the fish... More

It is a must visit spot for tourists coming to Muscat. This was the happening centre of Muscat originally with the port adjoining the corniche. The road plies along the coast with a smooth walkway by the side. It is a 2-5 kilometre walk along the corniche and you can tailor it to how much ever you want to see.... More

The cornice is a very nice place for views, cruises, walks or simply to enjoy the sea. As it was national day holiday, the road was really busy. It is really beautiful in night as well with national day décorations and lights throughout. The isolated rocky formations looks great. A short cruise is highly recommended. However, we could do it... More

A refreshing walk along the coastline particularly in the evening. I was lucky enough to see His Majesty's yacht anchored. It was a glorious, gigantic yacht! The water is quite clear, but water levels can change drastically in a short time. When you're here, the Souk is just along the road so take a look inside!

Very nice place for early morning or evening walk particularly from October to February. The water is very clear. There are few benches on which one can sit and relax. Parking is sometimes an issue particularly on weekends. Very nice place to enjoy ones evenings. At the end of the corniche, there are two parks, Riyam Park and Kalbuh Park.... More

The corniche in Oman was just as simple as the Omani people, the cool breeze (cold december) simple refreshen our day while having our coffee at one of the shop facing the corniche. A walk through the sea shore was a great experience as well. Both end of the corniche had different activities, the beach at the end can do... More

This is a beautiful setting for a relaxing walk admiring the Sultan's yacht and stopping off for a juice or coffee. The water is so clear you can watch all sorts of different fish swimming around and the views of the old towers on the mountains is stunning too.
