This is what I enjoyed most about Alexandria: walking along the corniche, watching people, enjoying the sea views and sunsets, and stopping at some good places; e.g., for a seafood meal and a fantastic place for mango juice.

It says in the description that the Courniche is 3 kilometers long! I have walked two hours and a half and didn't walk the whole thing! However, it was the most amazing and beautiful walk. In the morning, you see people jugging and walking in the fresh air of the sea. At night, you see the families of Alexandria walking, eating, drinking, and enjoying the sea wind. What a nice place!

What a wonderful place to visit. Busy and chaotic, but great fun! Just be careful and ensure you cross the road at an underground crossing area.

The Corniche is the main coast road along the seafront in Alexandria. Be aware it is a 6/8 lane road but underpasses can take you easily from the beach to the cafe and shop lined street in a couple of minutes. There are wall to wall shops, cafes, restaurants, hotels, Mosques, the Biblioteca, University, Fish sellers near Quaitbay Fort, The Harbour, Ice Cream sellers (made from fresh fruit!!!!! and delicious!!!!!) street vendors, everything here. The public beaches are lovely and you can hire a table, parasol and chairs for a few LE. Avoid the Corniche during Ramadan, I think the whole of this huge city meet there. It is quite a place and you can walk for literally miles right beside the beautiful blue sea, stopping for a cup of tea or an ice cream as the notion takes you then get a horse drawn carriage back from whence you came. Probably the most popular place in Alexandria.
