It's a nice place to have a walk with your family or picnic with friends. The best time of year to go is November to April and the in the evenings for the rest of the year but can get hot - it's a welcomed break from circulating malls!

Lots of people also out and about - very active place actually with families sitting on the lawn or beach cooking, drinking shai and kahwa, few shishkas happening, kids playing and even a few people fishing. We could walk a good few... More

Depending in where in the world you come from will determine weather you like the corniche or not. It's a built up seaside area. The amount of rubbish left there after locals BBQ-ing during the small hours is shocking. During summer it's to hot to be outside and enjoy the sea as you can't actually get into the water. All...

This place is very beautiful especially for family where they can come during early evening to enjoy the arabian sea. Its a great hangout for families who'd like to gather up over a BBQ. It also has a walking track where u can enjoy ur walk along the sea or jog. A great place for passing your time.
