Definitely worth a few visits at least. Very relaxing and beautiful place to relax in. Lots of lovely souk shopping to be done and delicious fruit juice and food. Should def go for long walks or a jog if you can.

Its a worthwhile and pleasant stroll by Muttrah's attractive low-rise seafront (and four lanes of traffic, unfortunately). The light on the city and mountains is better in the late afternoon than in the morning, and its a bit livelier too.

The corniche provides a lovely place to walk with the ocean on one side and the mountains surrounding you. There are places to stop and sit, and plenty flowers to beautify the spot further. It's very clean and it's nice to view the boats along the water's edge. There was also a spot where some local young boys were playing... More

The Walk along Muttrah Corniche and visit to the Muttrah Souq were amongst my favourite attractions in Muscat. You can see the mountains change colour as the sun sets over the sea and the city lights up in the evening. Although the place is bustling with tourists and shopkeepers through out day, I found it exceptionally beautiful around sunset. There... More

We just enjoyed the walk from the Souq as for as long as we had time. Enjoyed the waterfront. Make sure to take note of the size of the Sultan's yacht!

The Corniche is a nice walkway which runs for about three kilometers along the harbour from the Muttrah Souk to the Palace. You can find pristine gardens and fountains along this stretch. At the northern end of the Cornish there is a fish market and the dhow harbour, where the dhows anchor to unload the catches of the day. It... More

In the midst of fortresses, a palace, mountains and the sea, you find the Muscat corniche. There is so much to see: the Mutrah souk, the boats in the harbor, and all the little coffee and juice places along the way, not to mention the gardens and playground. This is a wonderful walk!

Muttrah Corniche is the Jewel in the crown of the coast line of Muscat. Cruise liners , Sultan's Yatch , Old Part of town , Souk... Museums, Riyam Park are all adding to the experience of the drive / walk along. " Nature didn't need an operation to be beautiful. It just was beautiful "

Long walking corniche. Beautiful and very clean public beach. You will find lots of omanis sitting and chilling or just taking a walk. Enough coffee shops like Star Bucks, Japengo to indulge yourself.
