Create an itinerary including Corniche
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.

  • Corniche is a wonderful place to visit when u are at old Muscat. This place has such beautiful views to offer, along with a great weather. Evenings are little cooler here. You can go for a walk from here till the museum or even the palace. Also you can get rental electricity bikes or normal cycles as well. With this you can explore the entire area.
  • A Must visit area if you are in the region. Hard to find parking during weekends. Iconic forts museums parks famous Mutrah Souq all available near by. Corniche walk is good in the morning and evening.
