A scenic little corner of the city with the view of Muscat port where where cruise liners dock along with traditional boats, and even the royal yacht. Good for night stroll with easy access to other cultural interests like the Mutrah Souk, several museums, cafés, and a few minutes drive to Old Muscat.

Muttrah corniche is a place where you can get yourself lot of good pictures. During the cooler months, you can walk and enjoy the breeze from the sea. You can see His Highness 's luxury yacht anchored. The 2 lane roads can get crowded at times. In the same area there is the Muttrah Souq where you find traditional omani... More

Muttrah corniche has an old souq (market place), restaurants, hotels etc., above all it has a very beautiful view of sea & in the evening it is even more beautiful. There a huge park too on the corniche road (Al Riyam Park) and definitely its worth spending an evening there. It is also a great place for joggers.

The night walk is quite exhilarating with the street side buildings lit up. Small park for kids and a big park al riyam is just nearby. Muttrah souq is next to it for a street shopping experience. Only discomfort is that no public toilets are available.

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
