The corniche stretches from the fish market on one end to a park in the other. The whole thing is paved and ideal for a lovely walk. Like the rest of Oman, it is remarkably clean considering the number of people who frequent it. Come during daylight for the view across the water and the fish market. Come in the... More

Walked from the port into the main town of Muscat. I'd guess it's approximately four kms but it's reasonably flat but take a bottle of water with you. Lovely sea and mountainous views until you reach the main city of Muscat, which you enter under the stone gateway. But remember it's 4kms back!

Past the Muttrah Souk is a walk along the port. This long walk is the corniche. Take this walk and enjoy the views of the water and old city. Also you'll approach at the end a watch tower which you can climb with majestic views on top. One can spend an entire evening here. Take a few hours out your... More

After the 21st century corniches in the UAE this was pleasantly refreshing. It feels very safe to stroll along and absorb a little of the Omani culture. Always something to see as we walked along, but not that much to stop for. Not that difficult to cross the road to the town. However it is a very clean and friendly... More

It's not breathtaking at any point but it's pleasant and clean and new and safe. Also leads to and from mutrah souq so you can do both together. The views is block by cruise liners and port machinery. The statues are tacky dolphins. Block all that out and enjoy the fresh air... lovely sunny and warm in January... probably hellish... More

Nothing like the tourism brochures or postcard photos - can definitely be skipped. Go to Wadi Shab or the beach instead.

A must place to visit if you in Oman. A place that you need to take pictures and post immediately in social media

Everyone loves the beaches, sand and the breeze .. yes for all those who feel connected to nature , this is a place to get relaxed .. even if you have kids you can enjoy ... but walking along the footpath with very young children can be little dangerous as the roads are really busy ... otherwise it's a nice...

WE walked into town from our Cruise ship and onto the Corniche. The views across the harbour are excellent. But what truly struck my wife and I were the crabs along the sea wall, red crabs - showing the health of the waters. The Corniche in Muscat is well worth the time to walk along and the enjoy.
