This is like an esplanade or waterfront area in other countries but the Emirates does it better. Pristine beaches, clean facilities, restaurants and activities like no other. Great experience but visit when its cooler as it gets hot in Abu Dhabi.

I think there are two places worth seeing in Abu Dhabi; the grand mosque and the corniche and it's beaches. Enjoy a relaxing day here. Beautiful beautiful beach! The best beach we visited on our trip around UAE and Oman.

We hired a four seater bike to cycle along the Corniche, the bike was in poor repair and my wife couldn't use the peddle because of this. Generally it's quite noisy due to the six lane motorway next to it...

The Corniche and the linear park behind it have developed from nothing to a pleasant attraction over the years I have been going to Abu Dhabi. Obviuoulsy it's hot, an dnext to a highway. They are great, especially on a weekend or holiday when families gather to ignore the signs banning more or less everything.

This place is better enjoyed in the evening because it is just too hot during the day which little shade....depending on where you are on the Cornish. It's quite long.

Its an about 8km stretch on the foreshore, you can hire bikes to ride to the end where Emirates Palace and Marina Mall are or have a picnic in one of the many booth along the water. Nice to get some breeze from the ocean when its hot.

Great for a walk, bike ride, (check out to locals on the trike and four wheelers) and a fab restaurant La Boulangerie mid way on a semi circular spit into the sea.
