Cabanas, juice bars, deck chairs- utterly lovely - play areas for kids and all for about 7 AED per person ( less than $2) for the day- Abu Dhabi at its best.

This is a lovely, spacious, new paved and landscaped area for long walks next to the sea. The gardens across the main road in front of the Le Royal Meridien Hotel area (use the pedestrian subways) are also excellent with quiet, little areas scattered among trees and water features.

Great place to go for a run or bike ride.
Always cooler than the rest of the city.
Some areas are always under construction, but thats ok.

DON'T take your family there during public holidays though, it is generally filled with single labour class men. Not very amusing.

If you like privacy, use the Sahel private beaches, for 10 Dhs pp.
Worth every penny. Lots of good placed to chill/eat/drink on the way.

Have fun!

A very beautiful stretch with skycrapers, nice gardens, plenty of coffee shops/restaurants and amazing view during sunset. We had the opportunity to walk along here at night and it's beautiful. There are wonderful beaches and clear blue sea opposite the skyscrapers. If you have time, please visit the Corniche. Personally Abu Dhabi Corniche is better than Jeddah Corniche in Saudi Arabia even though that was quite good too

We had heard so much about the Corniche and were looking forward to an afternoon stroll.
The closet we got to seeing it was from the Marina Mall tower,

we wanted to see it during the day, but our taxi driver didnt know where to drop us, so he dropped us at The Mall. We asked a few people in the Mall how to get there, and we were redirected 3 times into opposite directions!!

We eventually got a glimpse of it from the tower, but by then the sun was already setting, so it was too late.

Pity that locals dont know, (or perhaps dont want to help) foreigners to find their way around to a popular tourist attraction.

Looked very nice from the tower, though.
