The Corniche, Abu Dhabi

4.2
Take a gentle trip down The Corniche, an attractive stretch of manicured waterfront on the west side of the main island. Enjoy a swim at the public beach, or stroll along the 8 km (5 mi) public footpath, taking in the sights of the carefully designed coastline. Alternatively, consider exploring the area by bike--you can rent some wheels on site, with options including two- and three-seaters. The many children's play areas offer good diversions for little ones, and a solid set of restaurants and cafes lining the street gives you plenty of options for relaxing afterwards.

  • I'm just looking at the beach, so it was great to see the mind is cool-not like a person that much sand seemingly watching sea appears, it is so beautiful and dazzling beaches beautiful-a wonderful experience I think

  • We rented three bicycles and path around the promenade up to the fish market. Advice to do it on Friday, their public holiday for live and see

  • Promenade visited during the tour to Abu Dhabi. Well-groomed, green, stretching for 8 km, looks good with skyscrapers in the background. People walking and breathing fresh air, was not visible. Driving up tourist groups, a short photoshoot and back on the bus. As the time for long walks and I have not had managed to make only a few pictures with the bright blue water and blue sky.
