I have been to many sea side cities all over the world , I can truly say that the corniche of Alexandria in Egypt is the best. I can not exactly tell why , is it the breeze , the waves motion against the rocks , the beautiful sand . Many people say it is the smell of the ancient... More

They are so friendly and know everything worth knowing about the waterfront. You get... More

You can get stuck on the corniche for hours during rush hour . . . in that case, park the car and head over to one of the beaches or cafes. It's a beautiful area!

Very nice view if you are staying by it or even halving a walk or sitting on the cafes facing it. It is quieter in the winter of course and beautiful in the morning. But has its loud mood in the summer if this what you are looking for.

This was widened by the Mayor of Alexandria and it's a vast improvement over the old Corniche. But it's bumper to bumper during the summer holidays because this is the holiday destination for Egyptians and Gulfies! But if you can manage, it's certainly worth driving from Citadel Qaitbey all the way to the other end. Like I say, Alexandria is... More

It is a long way from the east to the west of Alexandria and it is a must to have a walk or a seat along it.

If visiting Alexandria you should walk by the Corniche, lovely in winter time so crowed in summer time but you can enjoy it more in winter time as fresh air and more clean in winter time you can also enjoy seeing the Fort Of Qeit Bay by night with some lights around the Bay if you walk by the corniche
