All across the middle east there are corniche, They are generally pleasant places made so people can walk up[ and down without the hassle of traffic. This corniche is no different a pleasant enough area to walk along, or jog, or cycle.. maybe just sit and stare

The Abu Dhabi Corniche is a great place to walk and visit. It is an impressive investment in public infra-structure that makes the Abu Dhabi waterfront super accessible and user friendly.

It's okay nothing out of the ordinary if you travel this part of the world but if this is your first Middle East experience then worth a walk around.

Great place to have a walk or hire a bike from the guy near the Emirates Palace. There's a few ice cream stands along the way as well.

Beautiful place for you morning and evening walk. You can spend good time there. Still water. There are sitting areas on the cornice. Decently maintained.
