“Lots going on”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Big screens and music due to forthcoming Grand Prix. Lovely cafes and lots of seating to enjoy lights across the water. Also very clean public toilets!

“Scenic and useful”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

The Corniche is wonderful to guide you because you can stay focused by keeping the water on one side of you as you travel. It's also absolutely beautiful.

“Lovely Beach and Great Views”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

The corniche is quite long and has many small snack places, nice beach areas, and lots of area to run/walk. The views of the ocean are great and the corniche is kept very clean.

“Do not miss a trip down the Corniche- you will be blown away”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

During your stay at a opulent 5 star hotel in the city, make time to take a trip down the Corniche, if you visit the fabulous up and coming traveller destination more than once, still take another taxi ride to see how it has changed.
In 1996 it used to be a sleepy dual carriage which extended down as far as the Hilton Hotel (which is opposite the Emirates Palace)
The Corniche since 1996 has changed out of all recognition. Land was reclaimed from the sea to build a fabulous 5 land road in both directions. At the side of this new extremely busy road is a great waterfront for strolling, a long public beach and then the sea.

On the land side of the Corniche you will be blown away by the amazing futuristic beautiful buildings in all shapes and sizes, but extremely tastefully built.
Take time to fit this trip into your holiday - the stop off at a 5 star hotel for an amazing dinner

“A nice walk”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

If you have time on you hands take a stroll along the Cornish. It is a very cosmopolitan part of Abu Dhabi and also leads down to the Marina Mall, which is a great shopping area with lots of restaurants too.
The Cornish has some lovely well cared after beaches. A lovely time to visit the Cornish is at night when the locals come down with their families, the joggers are out and the tempo slows down a bit. At the other end of the Cornish, toward the harbour one will find a beautiful flower which is worth visiting even if one does not want to buy anything. The array of flowers is lovely.
