“Summer in the City - an exotic, modern city with many facets”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

I must come back to stroll along the Corniche when the temperature and humidity is less like a hair dryer set to "STUN." Evening strolls were lovely and, after a couple of days to acclimatize, 38 degree late night strolls were very pleasant. Lots of walkways and green spaces. Wonderful for exercising, walking, or swimming (beach closes at 7).

“Amazing Beach converted to Promenade”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

When you compare the Corniche to the Bandra promenade,you realise why Indian infrastructure is so poor. Amazing utilisation of space, great thought behind constructing the entire cormich stretch.

“Excellent Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

I alongwith my family members including elders and kids visited the City Abu Dhabi in July-2013 during the holy month of Ramadan. Despite the hot weather, it was such a nice trip will be remembered forever. What a super view at Abu Dhabi Corniche. Its a long tale at one side of Abu Dhabi and has a marvellous view. A must visit by the family.

“Good place to hang out in the evening!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

I often go to the corniche with my family and friends. It's fun relaxing at the beach with so many facilities around. A variety of restaurants and juice and ice cream parlors make it even better. There is a nice long cycling and skating track for the athletes. You can also rent a bicycle in case you don't have one. The private beach section is good when you want to avoid the crowd and noise. Over all a nice and wallet-friendly place to hang out!

“like a rolls royce corniche”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

opulent, clean and welcoming to rich and poor alike. one of the most magnificent "esplanades" I have ever seen. Palm trees, views, sea, shops, hotels presented clearly with a tremendous amount of thought prior to construction
