It's nice.

Corniche is along the coast line of the sea and it's beautiful. My friends and I had a very good time in the sea and on the beach.

I always feel relaxed after visiting this place, you feel the old sport of the old Alexandria with a bit of modernization, enough to sit on the rocks and watch the sea, drink some tea from the passing by carts or eat any of the traditional Egyptian snacks, during the summer time it's Ickes and might be a bit annoying...

In some areas near the corniche they have ares where you can lie down in the shade or the beach, in other there are large rocks where you can side down and see some waves crash into them. A great place to catch the relaxing Mediterranean breeze.

When I feel down, I directly walk along with the corniche, where I can enjoy the smell of the sea with its beautiful view.
