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

I have been to this place so many times during my stay in the country that at times, one doesnt realize the importance of the place. It is best to visit in early hours of morning or late evening. While you are here, read up about how this place was developed and its appearance many decades back. This is in... More

I love waking up at the crack of dawn to take photos of the Corniche area. The fishers are arriving with their catch to sell at the fish market. The morning light is often perfect for photography while the subject is charming. Perfect time and location for travel photography. GJS

Spend time here to walk all along the sea front from the fish souk to Riam Park. There is so much to see and so much history all around. Make sure you look up to the mountains whilst not forgetting to stare into the sea and spot the great array of fish as well as the odd turtle bobbing up... More

Spent a few hours walking along the Corniche, perfect for a stroll in the evening. The mountains and view out over the waterfront provide the perfect backdrop to complement the thriving atmosphere of the Muttrah Souk. The old forts perched up on the mountain tops further add to the character. A beautiful place.

We spent a little time around the Mutrah end of the Corniche which was fascinating. Besides the Souk, the old merchants houses on the water front and Mutrah fort are very interesting as is the atmosphere.

With the Hajar mountains as a backdrop the Corniche has a perfect setting and worth spending time here to visit the Muttrah Souq, visiting the Portuguese fortifications or just taking a leisurely stroll along the waterfront. It is quite busy in the evenings but it is a place to enjoy at any time of the day, highly recommended.
