Excellent location for a walk in the evening. Only downside is that you can't hire the cycles as a foreigner.

Nice clean beach, we were out numbered by lifeguards. Sat under a Palm tree rather than paying £24 for Sun beds. The shops and cafes are good we had a reasonably priced Italian meal followed by a trip to coldstone creamery. A nice end to a good day.

The Corniche is a good place to walk and see local families and how they interact. Pleanty of places to stop with cycling lanes and restaurants and an amusement park. Lots of kids and there is also a beach. YOu can also hire bikes if you want to cycle. Not bad.

We drove along the Corniche only getting out of the car briefly as it was so hot. It would be good to be here in the cooler months to enjoy the beach and perhaps cycle along the beachfront path.

This is such a great decision on behalf of the Emirate! The Corniche is active at all times of day and night. The beaches are clean and easy. The paths are well lit and maintained. There are many places to stop for a cool drink or snack along the pathway. You can rent bicycles. It's lovely! From March 2013

Nice walk along the front, although the time of year we visited, was extremely hot. Cycle hire is also available.

Great infra é structure for outdoor exercising with many attractions for a public beach and family place. I recommend a good cycle trip from the end of corniche till close to marina mall. Stop over by the public beach and have a smoothie or juice in one of the small restaurants there. Avoid busy times. Afternoon after 17:00.

Although as a single male I had to go to the private beach I sat back relaxed and absorbed that Middle Eastern sun while reading a good book!

The corniche is the beach and facilities around it in Abu Dhabi, well maintained and clean, although the shallow waters are not as good in some areas since few has sharp rocks or building remnants. The only down side for me is the parking, as there are no adjacent parking and people with children has to park across the road... More
