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

The cornice is a nice drive after midnight to early morning. a nice stroll with good views all day. but as the city's main thoroughfare , it is very congested most of the day especially in the summer.

Its a scenic beach abount 3-4 kms long. You can walk else drive along. there are couple of shacks where you can sit and have luch or snacks by the beach. the beach is rocky in most places. Overall a peaceful outing

Unfortunately in desperate need of TLC. Litter abounds and the air rich with car exhaust from the constant streams of traffic. It appears for whatever reason nobody seems to care. A great pity.
