A world class infrastructure with clean and wide roads, service road etc. The beach in itself was clean but devoid of many visitors around 14oo hrs, maybe it was odd time to be on the beach.

I love the sunset and the sand! There are COVID restrictions as well like checking some temperatures and sanitizing, but still i can say that it's a little bit crowded especially during weekends as compared to Saadiyat Island. But still, you can enjoy walking and running along Corniche beach. I just hope they open some of the restaurants nearby. Only cold stone is open.

Make sure you go in the morning or before 5 pm. In the evening, it gets really crowded. The weekends are even worse. You can't use your bicycle bc it is full of people on those hours. But if you go in the late evening and early morning, it is doable. Women- make sure you walk with a buddy unless you like being stared at and potentially targeted, even while covered! On the weekends, I believe they have these small gocarts that kids can rent for cheap by the hour. It is on the far west side of the corniche.

Had a pleasant walk along the beachfront when it was closed but took the chance to visit and swim once it reopened after lockdown.
I was staying over the road at the hotel and was pleased they have a private part of the beach with bar and seating etc.
Beautifully laid out and scenic but when we went to swim in the sea the sand was awful - like builders sand and sinking!!!
Having swam a lot at Saadiyat natural beaches I was very unimpressed and could not wait to get out! Felt very sticky afterward
We used the pool thereafter as a much nicer experience!

Nothing outstanding. The place is often very crowded, and compare to other beaches, the venue is not that beautiful.

I am only providing such a poor review for one evening only but our experience was truly frightening and no-body warned us in advance. We had stayed in Abu Dhabi for a week and were travelling back to Dubai to catch a flight on the evening of the National Day celebrations. Apparently what we experienced happens every year and I was furious that neither the hotel or the taxi company warned us in advance. The celebrations include an amazing firework display all along the Corniche Beach however this brings the traffic to a standstill and effectively gridlocks the whole area for miles around, and for hours on end. And once the fireworks finish the locals descend on the area and cover everything with spray spaghetti, and in fact, anything that can come out of an aerosol can. Not being prepared for this was actually very scary - being ambushed and sprayed wasn't my idea of fun, while desperately waiting for a taxi that never arrived. Despite having organised a taxi to get us to Dubai with about 6 hours to spare, we ended up having to pay an unlicensed car to get us to Dubai, and with 30 minutes to spare before our flight departed. This one experience ruined what was an amazing holiday and nearly cost us a fortune in missed flights, plus we stupidly put ourselves in danger taking an unlicensed car. My advice is do not travel on National Day, and unless you wish to vandalise numerous expensive cars, don't watch the fireworks from the beach but from a safe distance.

The beach is clean and has well marked or areas for families to use. We paid 50AED for the use of an umbrella for some shade and 2 sun loungers.

Other beach users did. Or stick to their marked area and the staff did not really enforce the rule which is a shame.

The various cafes and food places where all shut or only took cash, which was as disappointing.
