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

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.

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
