“The spirit of Oman at Muscat's enchanted Corniche”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

All streets and ways will lead you to Muscat's Corniche. Take your time and stroll around. Totally beautiful and safe, it is there you'll mostly feel the Omani spirit. Old buildings and the entrance for Muttrah Souq. Big ocean liners and typical dhows float side by side at Muscat's port nearby. The visit should be made at early evening, when you'll also enjoy the beautiful sunset at Muscat (and it is not so hot anymore). Restaurants will make your delight with the authentic arabic mezze: the selection of delicious small dishes served in the Middle East as appetizers: white cheese, melon, yogurt, aubergine, artichokes, squids, cucumber, hot pastes and the always unforgettable hummus (a spread of smashed chickpeas), all served with the traditional pita bread. Enjoy.

“Clean Corniche with rich history”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

Take a stroll early in the morning or late in the afternoon to avoid the heat. The old buildings are telling a long and rich story while you can see in the harbor a local dhow passing by. At the same time you can visit the Souk and have a nice & strong Arabic coffee with some dates.

“Very attractive and clean Corniche area”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

There is nothing to dislike about corniche ,it's a very old part of Muscat and well kept with its old house architecture and very
Scenic road one side the old houses and the other the port ,with
A back drop of the old forts perched on the mountains and the
Very blue sea just amazing place.
