it's shame such nice coastline wide boulevard was choked with traffic in a weekday non-rush hour, with all the pollution, noise, litters, run-down historical buildings, this place desperate need a face-lift, along with some decent mass transit.

If you can manage to cross thecorniche you will have great view of the sea, waves washing trash upon the beach. It is a disgusting site, and to think that one side of the mediterranean is worried about the effects of building to... More

The corniche of Alexandria is a must see if you are in the city. It has a beautiful & wide sidewalk with many beaches, restaurants & great views of the sea.

this runs the length of the Alexandria coastline with multiple access to various beaches and places to eat.However, in summer months can be jammed up with traffic abd takes forever to get around on

Sometimes the simplest memories of places you visit are the natural ones, the free ones, the ones just showing life as it is. Alexandria's Corniche is one of these beautiful places and there are many cafes where you can just sit and watch the boats, the people walking around, the different cultures, clothes, and even listen to the different languages....

Talking a walk on the Corniche or sitting in one of it's many café's gives you a feeling of this great city, all it's opposites meshed together yet separate.

What a great place to walk and look out at the sea. Perfect for a morning stroll. Make sure you take you camera for great photo opportunities.
