Muttrah Corniche

The corniche of Muttrah, one of Muscat’s administrative districts and its main port area, is an attractive, scenic stretch of land perfect for evening promenades by the water. The local Fish Market and many souqs are just a stone’s throw away from here, too.

Do & See

Muscat's geographical positioning in close proximity to the sea, desert and mountains provides visitors with an endless list of possible activities. With natural beauty, beach resorts, an emerging cultural scene (facilitated much by the recently constructed Royal Opera House) and historical relics, the nation's capital is guaranteed to keep travelers busy both on land (mosques, forts and souqs) and at sea (dolphin-watching tours and snorkeling, to name a few).
