Nice beach, safe and plenty of cafés nearby. The sand is lovely, the sea is warm (although sometimes there are jellyfish) and as it is on the outskirts of the city you can get there in 5 min in a taxi. Lovely skyline to look at just a shame you can't have a beer in a bar whilst sitting out... More

One of the loveliest Corniche's in the Gulf stretching rather a long way. From the town itself right through to The Emirates Palace. Packed with play areas, greenery, cafe's and restaurants and offering breathtaking views, its a promenade to amble along and enjoy.

Lovely idea and pretty well executed although road crossings and underpasses not always clearly marked. Never tire of walking there

The Corniche makes for a really nice walk and gives you access both to numerous beaches (the free one is good enough) and some decent restaurants with very nice views

This is a very well maintained walk. Plenty resting places BUT it is impossible to do it when the sun is high. Even an evening stroll is so tiring. The Mall is at the end and a good place to get respite. Suggest you get a lift half way and walk the rest.

It occasionally holds big events like the annual red bull air race and UAE military day. Also has weekend bazaars! Also benefits the famous Emirates Palace and the Royal Palace! All in all a lovely part of Abu Dhabi,... More

The Corniche borders the bay and is beautifully landscaped in a park like setting with an attractive blue tile/marble walkway that goes for several miles. Definitely worthwhile especially as the evening sun sets on the horizon.

A nice place to take walks during the pleasant & cooler times. You get to see people going for brisk walks, running, cycling & keeping themselves fit. There are some who just take a stroll to get breathe fresh air. At intervals there are benches or places where people can sit or just relax. For the fitter ones, there exercise... More
