Great for an afternoon walk

The view from the corniche over the water is great. You are also close to Mutrah Souq and quite a few restaurants.

One of the most relaxed place to see people of all ages here. You can sit by one of the many fast food restautants hand have falafil sandwhich and hummus with juices and ice cream. They have a lot of other options to serve as well. You can opt to sit in the open so that you get a view... More

You want to relax in seaside? Go here! Perfect view! Beautiful sea, mountains, stroll in the seaside. The sea was tempting me. Almost I go for a swim.

A great location to either walk along the footpath, beach or watch the wetlands. Even sit a while on the wall and watch the locals - especially in their expensive cars - do laps along the Corniche. A pleasant place to spend a warm late afternoon.

Relaxing, interesting and soothing stroll from the fish market along the harbor with boats bobbing in the water, the Mutrah Souk and plenty of other shops to the side and on to the foot of the Mutrah Fort and further to the Riyam Park. You will be walking in direct sunlight, so be prepared for the heat in the hotter... More

The corniche quiet a nice place for a relaxing stroll. The breeze coming in from the water feels comfortable on a sunny day. The souk and a mosque are nearby. Worth a visit when when you come to the souk.

For all those explorers and walkers, put your boots on and get marching. When visiting the weather was beautiful. I walked along the corniche all the way to Sultan Qaboos Palace. Takes about 45 minutes. Walking along the coast between the winding mountains was absolutely beautiful. So many opportunities to take photos and stop to rest those feet. There's a... More

Visited briefly yesterday and it hasn't changed, a lovely walk to take in the evening air if you're in the area with the souk and fish market on one end and a lovely park on the other.

We easily spent the day here walking and exploring the streets and taking in the culture with the sights. Beautiful coastline with watch towers that you can go into. A park, souk and restaurants make it a more enjoyable day. Definitely go near sunset, especially up into the watchtower by the sea.
