“Quiet and relaxing”
Reviewed April 4, 2012

The Corniche is a beautiful strip overlooking the sea. People come together with their families having picnics, flying kites and friends getting together. I walked the whole Corniche and it is wonderful. Great for working all that seafood off.

“Nice Walk on the Gulf”
Reviewed March 31, 2012

The Corniche is sited beautifully. Unfortunately, the water is not very appealing to view. Many families doing picnics and walking. Beware, there is way too much litter, particularly plastic water bottles, all along the walk

“OK, but such a waste”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

There is not much to do in Al khobar if your are foreigner or visitor, but walking along the Corniche is nice but overrated. The water is Aqua in color and when not in the summer months it can be a nice walk, during the other months it is scorching hot. Problem is that area does not invite people to enjoy, there are so many rules and restrictions, plus stopping for a snack has to be timed on the odd hrs.
