This lovely beach area is where the locals go to do their jogging, walking, rollerblading and cycling. They have a wide and safe, smooth path that is open for all those activities. Beach is white sand and the swimming area is nice. However look carefully for public restrooms. I only have found ONE along the whole 4 or 5km of the Corniche and it was across the busy street. Other locations are in the cafes that dot the path or in the beach area but you must pay the entrance fee to use it.

Try to go in the evening as its just too hot in the day time.
The area is a pleasant place to spend half an hour before you go off for dinner.

We visited Abu Dhabi on a stopover on our way to Europe. We visited the Corniche but as it was 45 degrees we didn't walk too far.

The Corniche has play areas for the kids and separate Pedestrian and Cycle pathways. Free Parking (if required) and a free public beach with a life guard. There is also another beach which charges an entry fee. Plenty of Cafes and restaurants.

Pick early morning or late afternoon/night if you want to walk the 8kms as it is very hot. Better to visit during the cooler months. it is visible from the road so you could drive along it in a taxi/car if you wanted to see it.

Have I missed something?? The Corniche appears to be many kilometres of road and some beach. Do it as a drive by.

Nice to walk along, and a good park across the road, however, when we were there it was between 38 and 43 degrees C, with a sand breeze...
