“Lovely place to spend some time”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

As long as its not summer the corniche is a lovely place to stroll along. Be prepared for closed off and private beaches which you would expect from a Muslim country, you will not be seeing the ocean the whole way along. Having said this, the broad walk is lovely and like everything else in Abu Dhabi is very clean and crime free. There are lots of kiosk style shops and mainly chain cafes to grab an ice cream and a drink (Abu dhabi seems to have an abundance of american chains, small arabic cafes are much harder to come by sadly) There are go karts to rent for the kids and as long as the kids don't mow down any locals it is a very relaxing place to be.

“Best beach walk in UAE”
Reviewed 16 November 2013

A visit to Abu Dhabi without a stroll along The Corniche is a not the real deal. You can spend a couple of hours walking along the beach or you can select one of the many beaches to just relax. The are both public and paid beaches and family and single ones. Most cafes and restaurants are situated in the T-crossing of Corniche and Road 30. Best time to visit is Oct to April. The best is to go there by taxi, since parking can be tricky.

“A great beach and waterfront walk / bike ride”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

I have visited a couple of times. A great place to stroll from the port right up to Corniche beach. Along the way there are seating areas, some shaded and also some water features interspersed with gardens and flower beds. In additon you wil lalso find at least 3 points at which you can hire a bike together with drinks vending machins, dont forget to have some change, drink are around 2 Dh and the machines only take coins.

“Good lunchtime walk”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

Whilst it isn't too hot try walking the Corniche. It is really refreshing after a day in the Office. I try and do it most lunch times. Try and get to the fish souk if you can

“Disappointing due to renovation”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

A lovely area along the water, however when were were there, there was alot of renovating and construction so alot of the areas were closed eg. cafes etc.
.
It's very very hot there also, so a bike ride would be recommended or a night time stroll/walk. Very clean and safe.
