A beautiful location to explore the cultural side of Muscat. This place has a beautiful view of the sea, with watch towers to view the amazing corniche. This place also has Omani souqs where one can shop traditional stuffs.

A serene very soothing place in the morning & evening for walk & relax. Cool breeze, fish, sea waves, big liner, dhaws, garden, seating place and wonderful people are not to miss. Just cross the road & you can go to Muttrah souq where all traditional, modern and artifacts are available for purchase. More so little walk & you can... More

Muscat is a great city and this is a great walk to take in the sites. If you are in town it is worth the drive.

There is so much to see and do here ....shopping, historical sightseeing, turtle spotting, fish and people watching.

We actually visited this twice...once in the evening and the next day in the morning. Luckily it had rained a day prior and the weather was really pleasant. The corniche area is a beautiful one with hills and flowers in full bloom. Nice maintained as well.

About a 3 km stroll. The harbour on one side, the other has Muttrah Souk, manicured gardens, jagged hills topped with fortlets and a giant incense burner. Best time to go is after 19:00. The lights really create an amazing atmosphere. Combine with a visit to the souk (get off the main passageway to find the alleys selling gold -... More

Borders the Souk and the working port. There is a spectacular castle near the end. Look out for the crabs & birds at the waters edge.
