Cool to see, it's their "main street"! Lots of shops and malls, pretty much brings you to anything and everything!

It was hot in mid March, very little shade, the surrounding parks were very dirty and rundown with no shade, no cafes or shops were open even at 10. I wouldn't recommend this at least not in the morning unless you plan to run/walk with your own water as an adult.

My husband I walked along here recently and loved it. Lots of places to sit and take a break. Fishermen to chat with and a beautiful breeze off the water. Well done and truly enjoyed it

Simply breathtaking. You could literally spend the whole day looking at the building in the Corniche area. The architectural pieces are world class.

Large paved area with lots of room for walkers,cyclists & buggies. Stretches from Corniche beach right down to the port, could have more facilities along the route.

The corniche is a wonderful place to walk around and appreciate Abu Dhabi, BUT, the beach looks more artificial than natural.....Its even harder to observe the waves (I never saw any).....For people who wants a natural spot by the beach, then this place is not for you.

Abu Dhabi corniche is designed with taste. It's an ideal place to do sports or just enjoy spare time. The huge park nearby is nice place for picnics. Pedestrian underground with beautiful pictures inside will take you to oasis of meditation any time of day. Favourite place in the heart of UAE capital.
