Wide side walks, vendors along with public beaches. Parking is one the Abu Dhabi side of the road and you will have to cross at a... More

We enjoyed the stroll mid afternoon when it wasn't that hot, prior to this we had walked quite a bit around the city. We commenced the walk from the Investment Authority Tower and headed towards our hotel, although the walk offers shaded seats and toilets along the way there are no kiosks or opportunity to purchase water along the way...

We visited this are two nights running, there is much to see and do, but big wide avenues and large blocks makes it hard to do on foot and we didn't have the time. We went to Marina Mall a huge shopping area restaurants and cafes.

The Corniche is an ideal place to view the skyline of the older part of Abu Dhabi. It runs from the Sheraton at the Northern end to the Hilton at the southern end. It is well laid out on a flat paved surface and ideal for wlking or cycling. There are numerous places of interest to view all along the... More
