One of the most clean corniche areas i have ever been to! We were staying at a hotel just around the corniche so used to walk in the evening. Really a good experience - many people were out for walking or kids were cycling...felt like life is good.

No one really walks around in Abu Dhabi, you catch cabs. The Corniche is the walk way along the front of the waterway. Its well maintained and would be a great walk if you did.

We started our time in Abu Dhabi by walking the Corniche to the Emirates Palace, and it was such a great walk. I'd suggest if you want to walk this, start early in the day because it can get really HOT out. It took us about 60 minutes to walk from our hotel the Bin Majid to the Emirates, and... More

The weekend getaway for all of Abu Dhabi (after Dubai offcourse) is the Corniche. From the natural surroundings to the wavy beach to the exquisite dining options available, this is the place to spend time with your family and feel closer to nature

Here you can enjoy a walk/run or biketour for around 10 kilometers next to the sea and skyscrapers of Abu Dhabi. Awesome place to just enjoy a walk or run in the evening.

Unbearable in summer, delightful in winter. Although a little noisy, it's a really nice way to appreciate the city skyline. Although the water is quite and waveless, it's always nice to walk next to one. I truly recommend it and starting from the marina mall end.

My first trip to the Corniche was in Summer of 2010 and much has changed since. Many spots to sit to enjoy scenic views and it is easy to bike ride as well.

I am happy to see the simple free beach in UAE. Many are there but it was fun when I saw in her abaya going to swim. Very good place for family and a place for unsophisticated human.
