“Nothing special”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

Unless you want to walk for a while alongside the sea, nothing to do and see. Too hot to go there during the day anyway.

“Hottest Beach in the World?”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

Visited the Corniche but didn't take advantage of the beach. My son and DIL did, however. Beautiful water, clean beach, lots of places to eat and drink. But it's usually very hot. Maybe go early or late?

“Beautiful Walk”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

Excellent walk, looking across the Arabian Sea. Well worth the effort. Taxis are cheap enough to catch back

“Mesmerising.....!!”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

The UAE government has tried to make the Abu Dhabi Corniche among the best in the world with separate tracks for cycling and walking and adding plenty of greenery and underpasses connecting to the other side of the road..!
The revamp work started a few years ago and now its the gem of the city with people coming to do meditation, yoga and various other activities.
The Corniche is atleast about 4 km with places from where cycles can be rented and plenty of food vending machines and stalls throughout the area.
You can cross the road and visit any of the parks that dot the city. A wonderful view of the city skyline can be seen from the corniche. The most recommended time to visit the Corniche would be around 6pm.

“Good beach, somewhat clean...”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

There are several parts to the Corniche....there is a public beach, which is packed out, then next to it, there is a more private area you can enter for £1.50 or so. Lifegaurds are on watch and you feel safe.

After dark, the area is lively, with locals and expat meeting to relax, skate, bike etc...nice visit for the family.
