    Beautiful and clean beach
    Perfect location, clean beach, chargeable part is only 10 AED sunbed 25. The public part is also amazing. I tried both and had a great experience. If for a couple hours visit the public is good. If for more than better to get a sunbed and all. I think it's better to bring your towel as I haven't seen the stands. Coffee and some street food is available.

    The most amazing stretch of sand and city in the background. It is an excellent and beautiful beach.
    I walked along the walkway that lines this beautiful beach with its golden sand and blue waters. The beach is lined with a small green park with all sorts of concessions and bathrooms that makes it very workable for families. On the weekends, this is where the locals who live downtown spend the day with their families. On a sunny warm day in the winter, I thought it was a pleasure to just relax, get a tan and watch the world go by. The views of the city in the backdrop are just fantastic. Abu Dhabi is an amazing city!

    Stunning clean beach
    Immaculate public beach which is safe and has numerous on duty lifeguards. There are small food and refreshments outlets next to the beach such as Tim Hortons and Cinnabon. Some of these venues offer outdoor seating with umbrellas. I visited in August and due to the heat the place was nearly empty. In the summer the beach gets more busy after 4.30pm as people leave work etc and come to the beach to relax and cool down. There are free water fountains approximately every few hundred meters. There is a giant inflatable play area in the water, however I don’t think it’s open in the peak of summer due to the extreme heat. The beach looks so glamorous against the back drop of the modern skyscrapers. The beach is cleaned every morning. I didn’t experience beach sellers. There seems to be strict rules for wearing inappropriate swimwear (you won’t get away with wearing your underwear for example).

Beautiful location. We had a lovely walk along the promenade. Good choice of cafes/restaurants that you can stop off at along the way.

We stayed at the Sheraton in Cornish beach. There is beach enclave directly in the hotel. Warm and clean water. Very calm.

Going to Corniche Beach was actually pretty disappointing. The skyscrapers of Abu Dhabi behind you are pretty cool but the beach itself was underwhelming. There is a fee for entry which wasn't significant and there are lounge chairs and umbrellas to rent. Since Al Lulu Island is directly across, the beach doesn't sit on open ocean. No waves and not overly scenic with the island directly across. Not being able to have a couple beers while out on the beach added to the less than good experience.

Paying to go on the beach?! Well, that was a concept unknown to us. Pretty expensive aswel if you wanted a chair and an umbrella with it. Once paid, the beach itself was really nice, and beautiful. There was a food shack and i must say, even tho we orded fries and burgers/wraps/hotdogs, the food was insanely good. I mean, that women knew what she was doing! If you are willing to pay for it, i would recommend this beach.
