What a change from 20 years ago. Nice footpaths & cycle paths with lots of greenery. Shame about the busy motorway next to it- not very relaxing! Nice beach & facilities-toilets!! Finally.

I found this to be a highlight of my trip to Abu Dhabi. It was very peaceful and a a got spot for people watching. I think that it would get pretty hot in summer though.
