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.

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.

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.
