Seeing the sea is a blessing and if you've been trudging through the city of Alexandria, you will NEED the Corniche. Is it pristine? No. There's going to be ugliness mixed with the beauty. It's an active place with men fishing and kids playing. Don't expect a postcard shot but rather a real life moment.

Always nice to sit at a cafe and watch the Sea just at sunset and night. I enjoyed it alot. Walking along the Sea and just enjoying all its beauty is good

From far seems Copacabana. What a disappointment when you get there! At the time of my stay (August 2015) it was overcrowded, filthy and polluted by the smog of the extremely heavy traffic. The view of the buildings facing it is nightmarish! They looked like those in Beirut Greenline during the civil war.

We were originally drawn to Alexandria because of the articles in Tripadvisor - we were very disappointed. Alexandria with the Corniche is a dump - dirty broken down and not very appealing.

It was almost ten years since my last visit to Alex. I was really missing walking in the corniche. The corniche was clean and not so crowded. I can buy ice cream from gleem. The people was not organised.
