The Muscat Corniche is beautiful on a cool day, and I've spent a few hours clicking panoramic shots and feeding the birds. Also there is the free cycle-tour that you can sign-up for, which I'm yet to try. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find a trek path right behind the corniche area, leading into the mountains over-looking Riyam park,... More

A nice place to walk in the evening when the temperature gets cooler. Can go all the way to the souq and have some juices too.

This corniche is Nice because of the backdrop of the mountains and fort behind the city center. Nice for strolling around or just sit and enjoy the sunset.

Corniche is one of the most beautiful spot in Muscat. An evening walk or cycling is worth enough. Also there is a park nearby which will be loved by the children. The park also gives a beautiful view on the pretty Corniche

We walked along the Corniche in the early evening and although it is a fair distance, the walk was pleasant - cool sea breeze, historical monuments along the way (Portuguese forts), sea birds, families out for a walk - lovely ambiance in a very safe environment. The paths are wide and beautifully paved and there are resting places along the... More

You overlook a pretty harbor from an over-commercialized crescent of shops, restaurants, hotels. If a cruise ship is in port you will be elbow-to-elbow with 3,000+ recently disembarked passengers [and the adjacent souk is not built to handle that volume--very uncomfortable when it's crowded]. If you have to skip something in Muscat, just drive along the Corniche [less than 5... More

I am a long distance runner and like to run in every city I visit. I have visited Muscat seven times now and stay at my sister in laws who works there. I always run along the Corniche as it is so hot it is nice to feel the sea breeze. At the half way point in my run I... More

Lovely place to stroll along side the harbour with the souk on the other side of the road. Busy traffic but interesting views and a few restaurants for a snack or a drink. Great place for people watching.
