“Stroll and swim”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Strolling the corniche followed by a swim is a routine for outdoors lovers. Beaches are new on the corniche and they are free (except for some stretches that entertains families and provide recliners and umbrellas. Beaches has showers which is comforting after a salty swim in hot humid weather. The Corniche is a chain of connected open gardens. Some areas are specified for barbeques and you can find children rides and slides in some of them.
Abu Dhabi Corniche is the most convenient free outdoor entertainment for residents and visitors.

“The corniche is an excellent way to spend a lazy beach day in Abu Dhabi, throwing in some biking, beach volley ball or jet ski a”
Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

Until a few years ago the corniche was just a strip of beach under the Abu Dhabi skyline. After recent developments they have a number of cafes at the end of 30th street, and activities along the shore. there are designated biking and walking trails, although not very broad or well marked. Bikes can be rented on an hourly basis- aed 40 an hr. paid beaches are cheap & private with loungers for rent and bathrooms available. The small free beach is not bad either.

“The Corniche”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The Corniche is a wonderful area to spend your days or evenings, walking, cycling, having a picnic, using the play parks or eating in one of the restaurants.

The beaches are clean and supervised. There are "pay to enter" beaches, family beaches, also open, (free), beaches.

Plenty of fee paying parking near

A great place for young and old

“Beautiful”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

The Corniche is a very lovely stretch running along the water and is very well maintained. It is a beautiful place for a stroll as long as it isn't to hot. The water is beautiful and very tempting so make sure you bring your swimmers if you are planning on going to the beach. The public beach offers a lovely view of the Marina Mall, Abu Dhabi Heritage Village and the Abu Dhabi Theatre.
