This is the place to be in Abu Dhabi. It is a nice place to take a stroll in the evening. I recommend that people start from the Hilton Hotel in the direction heading to the Mina Zayed. On the way, you will come across several coffeeshops and restaurants. The water is very clean if you want to take a swim.

For people visiting Abu Dhabi for the first time, you will probably enjoy people watching on the Corniche. Many of the locals and foreign residents are out enjoying themselves. Everyone is very nice.

I'm an Abu Dhabi local coming to this place from when I was young and I can assure you that it has changed a lot with major improvements. Even though the positives overcome the negatives I still wish they take it more seriously since it's the face of Abu Dhabi. If you're a visitor you might start criticizing the jogging space and how it's poorly arranged with all the constructions work or the bike lines where if you don't squeeze to the far right to the up coming traffic you might just hit a tree. Safety is not a priority to the management apparently so I would recommend biking some safer place or in a gym. The beach is great and it is very clean, I'm impressed. They do some activities which makes it fun to join in some times. I would have loved if the management got more on social networking and speak out to the people and were open about current events that would change how the people see Abu Dhabi through it's attractions.

The Corniche is a great place to spend an afternoon at, with or without friends, there is a public beach and a bunch of restraurants and places such as "Coldstone" around. Usually get there for spending an afternoon at the beach, swimming, lifeguards around, excellent place to spend time at.

The Corniche in Muscat is where people like to stroll along in the evening by the sea. It seems to be a very popular place to be and be seen. Lots of cars travel along too viewing the beautiful Gulf. Nearby are some lovely Souks where you can buy such beautiful, and cheap, pashminas, and wonderful spices.

We enjoyed spending time walking down the Corniche, it was evident a lot of work had been done on it. The place was clean and tidy with lots going on. The beach looked inviting, it was well kept with options to dine or stop for a coffee. I pleasant afternoon.
