SUR Corniche, Sur Overview

Located at the oldest part of Sur, is the gorgeous Sur Corniche, making up the oceanfront walkway that is one of the most popular places in the city. Spread across four miles, Sur Corniche offers a spectacular view of the wooden dhows, or boats, that occupy the harbour nearby. From here, you may also spot the ancient watchtower situated across the bay in the rural settlements of Al Ayjah. The inlet side of the Sur Corniche gives a great view of the skyline dominated by beautiful mosques.
