Unlike busy and high flying Dubai - Abu Dhabi is more subdued and somewhat elegant. Lots to see and do - amazing aqua water and skyline - great photo ops.
Take a walk a long the Corniche at night and you will love it. It's safe and scenic. If you are into sport it's a nice shoreline for jogging. There are play areas for kids, coffee shops, and vending machines.
The Corniche provides a scenic walk along the Abu Dhabi shoreline and has many features and rest points along the way. This includes exercise/stretching areas, vending machines. It is about a 5km stretch to walk the entire distance.
The Corniche is a lovely place to walk in the cool of the evening, lovely views, lots of people walking about, very safe. We didn't swim or go to the beach there as it was too hot during the day but I think it would be great in the cooler weather.
It is a nice place to look over but recently when I needed to think through a pending project I decided to take the walk to the Corniche and along the beach to allow the needed mental focus.

Having lived in Southern California along the beautiful Pacific ocean, ocean drives are something I am accustomed to. The Corniche is a "gulf" drive situated along the Arab Gulf. On one side is the stunningly blue water of the gulf and the other is lined with impressive high rise buildings. Its a nice drive along the water. Not as grand... More
The best in the region in terms of facilities. Especially if you are looking for something a bit calm not crowded like Jumairah Cornish, with many choices of public and family beaches, along with some restaurants and snacks and normal services like well maintained showers and washrooms.
