“Nice during Spring time...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

The weather in Alexandria has been quite funny lately.. Even the temperature dropped to 9C in the month of April! But Corniche is a very nice spot to jog, stroll, bike... Avoid these area during summer time as people from Cairo and all over nearby areas will swarm in for the beaches! Can be a total inconvenience when all you want is a relaxing time on the beach...

“Relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

The corniche is a really nice place to walk in the evening to cool down. There are many cafes on the opposite side of the street. You can also join in on a football match if you want.

“Why is this a thing to do?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

This is just a walk along the seafront next to a massive busy road.
The car fumes could almost kill you with the amount of traffic there is.
The other side is a sea wall, that the locals just chuck all the rubbish they have over.
In other cities this could be a very nice walk.
But lets be honest most people will either get a taxi or a bus along this.
