I have walked the Corniche from the city end to Emirates Palace, a lengthy stroll that calls for good walking shoes and the avoidance of dehydration, but an experience to remember. When you drive the Corniche it is pleasant enough but only by walking can you really appreciate its quality. The immaculately maintained flora an clean environment along the edge... More

This is a great place to walk in the evening! Especial when it has been very hot during the day. I enjoyed seeing people have fun in the water and others was enjoying the walk. It a great place to spend some time while reflecting on life!!!

Brilliant area for swimming, water very clean. Unfortunately we were here when 42 degrees, so too hot to absorb soaking up the sunshine

What a lovely place for a walk along the water and lovely views. See the sun setting and all the different water fountains was a lovely sight. As it was Ramadan the cafe's were closed so could have done with some opened and screened off for tourist. A must see if your are in Abu Dhabi

It's a walk by the sea with lots of cars on one side and the view is not that great, but if you're staying closeby a walk there is convenient.

The beaches are gorgeous, white sand and warm water, and there are lots of cafes, ice cream parlours and coffee shops if you need a break from the sand, sea and sun.

I love taking a walk on the corniche, they've done a brilliant job with this place. It's not so good in the summer, but it's a lovely hangout for ice-cream or a nice coffee in autumn and winter. Brilliant for families. It costs a bit to get on the beaches, but it's well worth it when the water's warm

However, in July with temps approaching 40 degrees, there is no comfort in a swim. Water is 32 degrees Celsius - I looked it up. No refreshment in a swim and I... More
