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.

  • A nice place to walk around to get a feel of local culture. Especially in the evening when the locals relaxing, meeting each other and exercising there as well. 
  • Somewhere fairly anonymous, boring and insignificant ... offers nothing if not some little restaurant and the usual super exaggerated to visit ...

  • A nice stroll next to the sea, but with little else to see or do. The Marina or Al Maryah islands are far better places to spend your evening.
