I simply loved this place. It has a running and cycling track and cycles and buggies for rent. Has many coffee and food joints as well as private and public beach access at very affordable prices. One end of corniche is the Abu-Dhabi marine sports club with many yatchs docked and other end has many old fishing trawlers. You can... More

It is long, long... and pretty. Along the Abu Dhabi Corniche, you can do whatever you'd like to do in your leisure - read a book in peace, watch the sunrise or sunset sitting beneath palm trees, participate in or simply watch the various water sports, jog, cycle, or exercise using one of the machines installed for the purpose. The... More

Part of the Waterfront in Abu Dhabi. Good if you're looking for a walk or a bike ride along the river that forms part of the Corniche or inland waterway. Good for relaxing and a bit of exercise... Not much else to do except watch the world go by!

Weather is still nice, but everyone says it would be too hot to go on April. It's nice to set and drink coffee watching the sea and gazing at the skyscraper on the other side of the street.

Great beaches, lovely sands overlooked by towering modern buildings. On the opposite bank is Lulu island and the giant flag of the UAE. Best bit is the picnic sites and cool pavilions, all with good car parking. Interesting drive to the Marina.

Walking along the Corniche was my favorite things while visiting Abu Dhabi. My husband and I walked down at sunset. It was beautiful! And it was during a prayer time, so the nearest mosques were sounding. I won't forget looking out at the water as the sun was setting and hearing that echo. We walked down to the beach and... More

Don't miss this view. The corniche has a lovely boardwalk where you have the beach on one side and the skyline on the other. It is a really good view of the buildings and you can take an afternoon stroll . Great for families as well. Some were having picnics at the beach. Also avoid going on Friday and Saturdays... More

A superb and level water fronted walk way to stroll along and enjoy the views. Just wish there were a couple of 'refreshment' stops along the 'East' side...it can get very hot and dry ! The public beach and Beach Clubs are to the West end so it can seem a long walk !

The Corniche is a paradise for those who love the outdoors! This trail has great views of the city and access to beach areas. There are food stops if you're hungry and bike rental shops. It is an overall great place for the family and friends, or an awesome idea for an evening date night. I would have spent more... More
