“Lots of fresh sea air :)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

The corniche runs along the whole of the front of alexandria and has cafes interspersed on that side all the way along too. Private as well as public beach access. To get to the corniche however you have to cross an extremely busy road (3 lanes each side) so I would suggest that you either use the underpasses which again are interspersed along the front or try the traffic lighted areas (still not 100% safe as cars etc dont neccasarily stop when its red) My only rant would be the amount of rubbish that is strewn all over !!!!

“Alexandria is the Cornishe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

The best view in Alexandria city is viewing the very elegant Mediterranean sea by having a car cruise along the Cornishe road starting from the Mountazah Palace till Bahary . Really it's amazing but not recommended during the rush hours.

“Corniche of Alexandria”

I try to drive from one side (montaza palace) to the citadel of alexandria. Beautiful ride and really can feel the breeze of the Mediterranean Sea. Beautiful buildings with greco-roman style

“From the Main Symbols of the City...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

It is from one of the most popular attractions of the city.
Represents the city almost in every photos.
It is a walk next to the beach and both mainly packed.
Very crowded with locals and street sellers during the summer days.
The beaches are not free and there is a fee for a sun-bed and umbrella.
Not many services and utilities.

It is nice to walk at night or watch the lights from a high building however might be a big hustle.
