Corniche, Muscat Governorate
(4.3/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • They are ideal for a leisurely stroll on the boardwalk in Muscat. On the one hand, the city's port and the other the Muttrah Souq. Many colors, all well kept.

  • One of the most beautiful walking place of Muscat. In the surroundings nice restaurants, tea gardens and gift shops. After the sun goes down, all the people coming out here. They're taking the sea air.

  • This corniche can be easily on of the best in the world. Almost 5 km long path dotted with beautiful sculptures and plaques detailing Oman history. You can see various forts on land side and clean sea full of fish n seagulls on other side. Nice place for children. Facility of free bikes also. Good food.
  • One of the best Corniches I have ever been to. It's about 4km long. Dotted with beautiful places to sit some nice sculptures plaques on wall depicting Omans heritage good eateries parks etc. Above all not much crowded and very accessible
  • Exellent place for walking or cycling ( you can find bicycles there ). And also you can enjoy watching tourism ships and vessels entering or getting out the Sultan Qaboos port.
  • The jewel to the capital area is truly the immaculately maintained sea shore, Corniche. The cleanliness and landscaping is one of the finest in the world and certainly the best in the Middle East.
  • Nice place to run or walk with enjoyable view of sea or even sit and relax.
