This place is a fun place to visit if you are a tourist. The old souq is a must visit if you've never been to a souq before. It's a nice contrast to the modern malls in the city.
I would highly recommend catching the sunset at the harbour and then having dinner at Bait Al Luban! Their food is amazing!

In muscat a walk by the Corniche is a relaxing experience.
The corniche stretches for a good distance paralleling the main coastal road.
You don't get to walk on a beach here because the main section of the corniche faces the muscat port.
You could see a number of large ships, some are military, from the corniche.

The corniche is long, starts from the fish market and ends at a park. Is very beautifull, clean, safe with large pavements, ideal for famillies with kids. The corniche faces the port of Muscat where are a lot of boats small or bigger. During summer, can be very hot and during hollidays (Fridays) is very crowded. Very relaxing experience to walk during the afternoon and enjoy the sea breeze and thousands of seagulls. Do not miss it!

Probably the best part of Muscat city. The place has old world charm. The view of the harbour is amazing particularly at night. Nearby is Muttrah souq and Muttrah Fort. One csn walk up to riyam park and kalbuh park.

No visit to Muscat is complete without a walk along the corniche. Flat and easy walking.Although there was a few areas where it was breaking up.
Lovely covered areas along the way to sit and watch the world go by, whilst sheltering from the sun.
An easy walk if you are here on a cruise. A walk passed the fish & Vegetable market, keep on going. Walk as far as you like then cross over and visit the Souq on the way back.

The Muscat Corniche is 3 km long. It follows the seaside from the fishmarket at Mutrah to a bit beyond Al Riyam park in the direction of Old Muscat. A highway is located right parallel to it, but does not disrupt quiet and peace too much, as most of the way the space is quite wide.

The most interesting part of the Corniche is at Mutrah, as there are some historic buildings near the souk and generally this area is more lively with a view on the port basin with different kind of boats. Old forts can also be seen on the landside.

Great for a walk especially during winter.

We had an early dinner not far from Muttrah Souk, wondered in and enjoyed the atmosphere, but we not quite ready to go back to our lodgings just yet so we decided to take a walk along the Corniche, the sun was going down and it was cool enough to do so.

We walked all the way to the palace in old muscat, the watch towers along the way are beautifully lit, and it was flat and well paved all the way there.

the area around the palace is quiet, almost deserted, it was dark when we arrived and we only saw gardners and guards, but it was very pretty, and the palace is very impressive, its also lovely to go for a walk, as you might find you spend most of your time in air conditioned cars/hotels/by the pool.

Be aware the its unlikely you'll be able to hail a taxi at night near the palace and we diddn't pass any shops or cafe's so would have got a bit thirsty if we hadn't packed water.

Its a lovely waterfront and stretches for almost 2 km. Good for joggers or for an evening stroll. There are some benches in case you want to sit and relax. The dhow cruises are also there and one can get a view of Sultan's ship docked nearby. Its one of the favourite amongst tourists and really worth taking snaps.

Corniche stretches for about three kilometers along the harbour. 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 is a busy place with all fishing dhows returning for business. Next to the fish market is the fruits and vegetable market, where the prices are much lower compared to the supermarket, provided you know the art of bargaining.

Along the Corniche is the Souk, which is a must visit for the visitors. Muttrah souk is a traditional market, which sells ancient and traditional items.
