The promenade it self is beautiful and well maintained. But not a lot going on (April). As you walk SW, towards the Etihad Towers, it get better. A big part of the beach is interdict to man, but a reasonable part of it, has an almost occidental feel to it, and it's open to everybody and bikinis are welcome. Nice... More

The long trench of beaches, restaurants, clubs and cafés makes the Corniche a great place to hangout while in Abu Dhabi....spotless white sandy beaches and plenty of water activities

The views are really nice, but even better if you re on a boat, like capt. Tonys Dow. The buildings have cool designs, specially on the emirates palace side, such as the etihad towers. Try to avoid fridays, since it gets crowded. The beach is not bad, if u dont go to the public areas, otherwise its not confortable, specially... More

Its a long way path side by of water. Beautiful scenic area. You can have a good photography here. Best time to visit when its a time of sunset. Must visit when you are in Abu Dhabi.

This is a good stretch for a drive, run or walk. The view around is beautiful. An evening visit is more enjoyable.

I will not move to the newer shiny accommodations just built on Reem, even Saadiyat. I love my corniche. I can jog, enjoy events held on the Corniche and walk home. I would not trade it for the world. I am so grateful that the beach has been significantly expanded. I love it -- we just need a Skate Park... More

A visit to Abu Dhabi wouldn't be complete without a car ride/bike ride/stroll/jog/swim along The Corniche. This is where you get to really appreciate the contrast of the torquoise water against the beautiful sandy beaches that stretch for kilometers, with a desert island across and everything seems just perfect. Enjoy a sunrise, sunset or at any time of the day... More

In winter it must be great to stroll around the corniche. But not in the summer. With 40Cº and 85% humidity it is almost inhuman to walk around. Beautiful view of the blue sea and white sand, beautiful beach but nobody is there... it´s completely desert...
