A relaxing walk
Jan 2020
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!

Pleasant Walk

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!

A walk between old and new
Mar 2020
Start at the new fish souq (2017) and end at Mutrah fort (1580s) passing the old merchant houses with their traditional balconies overlooking the busy modern port. It can be very hot in summer and very crowded on Fridays, but pick your time and it's a great walk.

Beautiful corniche
Mar 2020 • Solo
The corniche is beautiful and very clean. Even the water is clean. You’ll definitely enjoy the walk along the corniche, by day or night. It stretches out from the port until the park. It’s really worth doing.

Clean waterfront

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.

Lovely strolling area, leading to the Souk
Jan 2020
The Corniche provides for a scenic stroll in Muscat. The royal yachts may be seen in the harbour. Lots of cafes. Entrances to the Souk in a few places.

A lovely place for a nice stroll
Jan 2020 • Couples
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.

Old world charm

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.
