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

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.

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