This is good place to find some peace of mind. Though there are plenty of shops and restaurants. Enjoyed the walk around this picturesque area.

Very restful and magnificent promenade, it connects Muttrah with the other old areas of Muscat. Everything sounds perfect, totally looked after and shining. You can visit the traditional Souq arriving till the Sultan's Palace and the fortresses overlooking the whole gulf.

For those of you arriving by cruise ship, this is a great location to enjoy the nice views of the harbor, etc. Get out and enjoy, it is a short walk from leaving the cruise ship, and a nice area to take some lovely pictures....More

The atmosphere at the Corniche is just incredible - local folks are very friendly and the view during sunset is mesmerizing. The coastal route goes quite a distance from the commercial areas towards a more residential districts - equally charming with different atmosphere. I though...More

The corniche in Matrah is the gateway to the old city and is unmissable if you are in Oman's capital. The doorways are worth stopping to take photographs. They also serve as bookends to the old city proper, with the exit point on the Bustan...More

We kept coming back here!. Park next to the Fish market (its free), then wander along the waterfront. You can walk quite a way if you want but can be HOT! Best to arrive just before 4pm, when the souq reopens and the locals and...More

I very much enjoyed the corniche area in Muscat, where the mountains meet the water. It's rather amazing to look behind the buildings and see the mountains rising up only meters behind them. The old forts atop a few of the hills add to the...More

Hi S, the walk is about 3 kms through what was the container port until last year. Not pretty. Seems to me there are shuttle buses all the time from the cruise ships down onto the Corniche. Drop off point is where the old... More
