“Great beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

Love the Corniche, think it's a favourite amongst many expats and locals living in Abu Dhabi. Really clean beach, white sand and beautiful blue sea! Worth a visit!

“Paradise at your foot step!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

I visited the Corniche area a couple of times and found it was extremely clean and well maintained especially for a public beach where so many in other countries are not nearly as good as this. The beach itself was lovely and had a great selection of restaurants

“Best place in AUH”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

My favourite part about Abu Dhabi... I absolutely love it, something I would really miss if I leave.. Peaceful, calming with a fun vibe during a big event, its the perfect place to be every day of the week....

“Peaceful and Clean!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

I liked taking a "Byke" along the corniche mid-day (though the bike rental is open until around 10 PM I believe) and taking a stroll in the evening. It is a well-manicured stretch with small eateries. It is policed in the evening so you feel completely safe and it is open to families.

“Beautiful beach!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

The beach is absolutely breathtaking! I am new to the region, and I have never encountered water quite so blue! It was a very pleasant swim. However, being an american woman, I got quite a lot of stares while on the beach and even caught one man taking a photo of me! We were on the public beach, however, which is free and open to everyone. I think next time we will pay the few dirhams to go onto the family beach and not be made uncomfortable by strange men's stares. Overall though, the beach was amazing and walking along the pathway was a great way to spend the evening!
