The Abu Dhabi Corniche is a nicely done beach/walkway area. I live near there and spend lots of time at the cafe drinking coffee. There are long stretches of almost unused beach with a few cafes in the central beach area. You can rent bikes, jog, walk or hit the beach. During the non-summer months, lots of events center on...

Living in a city with a large, beautiful and very functional beach and a beautiful, carefully prepared and maintained promenade extending next to it is something not everyone can afford. Well it seems so at least for a tourist who just visited this.

This is a very interesting place to visit as there is often things happening along the Corniche. It is a wonderful way to enjoy Abu Dhabi and see its people. Whether walking, jogging or hiring a bike. It's the place to be. Many entrances to the beach, places to eat, parks and picnic areas. You have the ocean on one... More

There's a beautiful sidewalk along the water for walking, biking, jogging, lovely green spaces for picnics or read-a-thins, delicious restaurants at the intersection of Corniche road and 30th and stretches of beach that welcome guests (free and for a 10 AED fee) with lifeguards at every turn. On the weekend nights, there's always some fun going on!

A great place to run and bike and scoot with children up and down the corniche. We have spent many a weekend morning on the Corniche riding up and down and going to the play parks on either side of the road. In the centre of the Corniche there are often events and displays to attend for free. The family... More

It is a strange introduction to a beach and the green belt attached to it. It is - if you know abudhabi. We live at walking distance to this marvelous ten km to a great family place. Across the road are four large parks with varying themes. Ride a bike, skate, jog or just walk on purpose built belts and... More

Early morning walks are refreshing, enjoy the family beach (3) in the afternoon, smoke shisha or enjoy a coffee and watch the World go by in the evening..... Life is fascinating on the Corniche.... Bright light city it's all here in AD.

There is a nice walkway along the Corniche. There a open public beaches and closed off family beaches. All have lifeguards. There are places to play beach volleyball and beach soccer here as well. Food and drink outlets are along the Corniche.
