Despite being the capital's main port area, Mutrah feels more like a fishing village. The daily catch is delivered to the fish market, by the Marina Hotel, from sunrise. A lengthy refurbishment has transformed the market from a few crates on the shore to a landmark destination with a purpose-built, wave-shaped building and landscaped addition to the corniche, completed in 2017.
