“Doha, Qatar - The Corniche”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Nice place, but go there in the afternoon were everybody show up (too hot in the morning or early afternoon). Everybody show op for walk/jogging, especialy on Friday that is Sunday for them over there. Don't forget to ride the Doha boat that take you around the bay. Bring your camera too. Just remember to follow the Islamic rules even here they are not great followers for turist.

“Enjoy the View”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

The Corniche is a nice place to walk, run, catch a ride on a Dhow and take in the city skyline view across the bay. Parking along roadside available. No bicycles allowed.

“Not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Time after time The Corniche scenery and atmosphere convince me this is the most spectacular place in Doha. There isn't another place like it. Fabulous views of the Gulf and the amazing Doha skyline any time of day ( avoid mid day sun from April to October) . Want to sit and chat, stroll, put in your 5km, drink a tea or find a spot to eat? All done here, in beautiful, vibrant surroundings. All year round, flowers and greenery backed by an impressive architectural feast on one side and the turquoise waters of the Gulf on the other. Nights are especially magical.

“Wonderful for long walks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Wonderful place for long walks, jogging, picnics with the family, a little bit of fishing, etc.
Is a very busy place, especially when are some kind of sports events, like yacht racing, but is worth a visit. Excellent spot for photo enthusiasts,.
there are a few spots for recreational sports like stand up machines, can be a tricky place to park but I can highly recommend it.

“Great walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

Lovely scenic walk, taking in the City of Doha and its changing skyline, its mosques and skyscrapers well as the dhows on the water.
Take plenty of water and sunscreen.
