The Corniche, Abu Dhabi
(4.2/5 based on 2,800+ reviews on the web)
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. Add The Corniche to your Abu Dhabi travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Abu Dhabi vacation route planner.
