4.4
#16 of 116 in Things to do in Muscat Governorate
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.

    Corniche is the mesmerising place in muscat, it was fun walking around with friends and clicking pictures of nature.  more »

    Maybe it's high expectations that we had created, but the reality was sobering. The view of the mountains and landscape is much nicer to other parts of the country and in general we did not find anything special in the promenade.
