(240+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
Take a stroll along Corniche, a scenic waterfront promenade in Muscat’s Muttrah district. A bustling hub of commercial activity, the sweeping seaside road leads you along the spacious port, often packed with traditional "dhow" boats, the old Portuguese fort, and the lively fish market. Enjoy picturesque views of the mountainous seafront as you walk or cycle the road, and pay a visit to the famous Souq bazaar, an ancient marketplace where you can hunt for bargains and browse its labyrinthine stalls, which sell an array of antiques, jewelry, handicrafts, and vibrant fabrics. A visit to Corniche represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Muttrah travel itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

  • In the evening, the walk is nice, it allows to kiss look throughout the Harbour, the boats that are moored or at anchor, the buildings of the seafront including the entrance to the Souk and the old fort Portuguese who dominates the whole (who would win a lot to be informed). Intense traffic and the way that come from the port however adversely affect the experience. That's too bad. Some good not touristy restaurants.
