It's about a 45-minute walk from the centre of the old town to the port area of Mattrah. The walk is comfortable as the pavements are good and there is plenty to see on the way. We went at night and felt very comfortable all the way. The only odd thing - fantastic pavement but no pedestrian crossings aside from one, just in front of the fun-fair/park.

The corniche is where it all began and is very well developed.... probably that's the only place where Muscat is actually 'much more' developed than Dubai....!! There is good landscaping and a couple of parking spots. There is also a fort right at the corniche

The Corniche area is great but too crowded with Oglers. Better to avoid during weekend evenings especially

Nice place for a short coastal trip around the muscat area. Not too busy, but also not very spectacular...

A very picturesque drive, both day and night through the city gates and along the coast to Muttrah. You can spot any type of boat i the harbour from old wooden dhows to oil tankers and even the Sultan's yacht. Don't miss it
