The corniche runs along the whole of the front of alexandria and has cafes interspersed on that side all the way along too. Private as well as public beach access. To get to the corniche however you have to cross an extremely busy road (3 lanes each side) so I would suggest that you either use the underpasses which again are interspersed along the front or try the traffic lighted areas (still not 100% safe as cars etc dont neccasarily stop when its red) My only rant would be the amount of rubbish that is strewn all over !!!!
