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.

Great place to walk around and get the feel of Muscat. Plan to eat elsewhere as the restaurant options are not good. Keep driving past the Corniche to the beach - it's amazing!

This was in a good setting, good for both promenading and driving along. The beach was very clean and there were ample cafes and restaurants along it.

This is a nice walking sidewalk along the port in Oman. A great vantage point to see the ships and yachts and some fishermen. There are also bikes for "rent" (someone said they are free).

One of the most iconic landmarks of oman. A must visit on the tour. Another initiative is u can hire a cycle for free for half hour and cycle along the cornice. Great fun especially for kids. Also one can get a view of all the big ships that come to port at Sultan qaboos port!

I have been experiencing and seeing the changes at the Corniche in phases since last 40 yrs. Best time to visit it is from 11pm to 7am for the peace and fresh air. You can walk or jog or cycle whole day will no insecurity. It is one of the most tidy Corniche (Sea face) I have visited. It also... More
