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!

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!

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.

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.

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.
