    Nice to wander along
    We walked a part of the Corniche for maybe an hour - it wasn't a very hot day so that may limit you. There were nice things to see like the skyline across the bay and the museum buildings located on the water. Worth seeing

    The Corniche is Beautiful Both During the Day and at Night
    The Corniche of Doha is beautiful and is a great place to go for a stroll. Keep in mind that it is 4 miles long stretching from West Bay to the MIA Park but you can just pick a portion and still enjoy. I think the southern half provides the best views. The skyline of Doha is stunning especially at night and can be best seen from the southern half of the Corniche. The views out to the water are also beautiful including the traditional dhow boats in the harbor. I wish we had saved time to take a dhow ride as this would have been fun and quite scenic. We visited the Corniche while in town for the World Cup both during the day and after dark. Daytime temperatures were comfortable in November. I enjoyed both times as each provided different experiences.

    FIFA World Cup 2023 - Explore Qatar
    This was an excellent experience seeing the Doha Skyline at nighttime!!! I strongly recommend this place for those travelling to Qatar and want to explore a new country. Qatar is a wonderful country to visit in the Middle East.

    Great pedestrian area stretching around the harbour. Exciting at night with everyone out and about.
    Lovely looking pedestrian area away from the road that stretches around the harbour. Walk, run, cycle and hire a scooter. There are dedicated paths but be careful and watch for people coming at you, especially at night when more people come out. Great place for families and very safe. Close to the city buildings that light up at night making the area look so exciting. Along with walkways you have green spaces for sitting or sit on the harbour wall. This is the place to also find the boat trips that run mostly at night. A few coffee shops and places to grab a snack dotted about too. Smart and clean.

    Nice Waterfront
    The Corniche is about a 6'7km long crescent shaped waterfront Road in Doha. For me, the nicest part is the area in front of Souk Waqif where you get amazing views of the Dhow Harbour and the city skyline. The best vantage point for me is the FIFA World Cup countdown Monument, a plaza that just out off the corniche out over the water. Beautiful views there by day or night.

    A Must-Visit Gem
    Doha's Corniche is a fantastic place that perfectly blends nature and modern city vibes. The long, beautiful pathway along the sea is great for walks and bike rides, and it's surrounded by well-kept greenery. You can take a break on benches, enjoy the sea breeze, and admire the stunning views of the Gulf and Doha's skyline.

    Interesting waterfront
    We visited the Corniche as a stop on the Discover Qatar tour. The Corniche is the part that faces the sea. It has livelier areas and quieter zones. You can also see the Museum of Islamic Arts. I suppose it depends on the temperature, but it seems like a pleasant place for a stroll or a run.

    Lots of things to see and do here
    Theee are lots to see and do here. One can walk along the corniche, focusing on certain areas only as it is a long area. What I did was to hire a driver and his car and we periodically stopped along the way to take pictures of various attractions such as the Pearl Monumnent, the dock where the local boats are parked, various sculptures, high rise buildings, etc. Early in the mornings and late in the afternoons are the best times to do these.

    A lovely stroll
    We loved walking the cornice and we walked from one end to the other. It was fun watching the events on the waterfront, the boats and the families out fishing. There isn’t a lot of shade so take sunscreen and a hat.

Stretching for miles, this waterfront spot combines modern wonders with the serene backdrop of the Arabian Gulf. Qatar's dedication to cleanliness is evident here, with well-kept paths, comfy benches, and cozy rest spots that make it a welcoming place for everyone to enjoy the beauty around them.

City scape of modern buildings, glass, concrete and lights. Nice to visit when it is just getting dark. Weather permitting, nice jog, or a walk.

The Corniche is a beautiful part of Doha.

There are wide pedestrian walkways and plenty of greenery and parks with a backdrop of amazing skyscrapers, all to be enjoyed looking out to the lovely tranquil water and show boats.

One of the best evening walks of our lives. We went after 9 PM in January and walked for almost two hours and the views are beautiful. It is completely safe to walk in the evenings and you will find plenty of people walking, eating, and enjoying their evenings. I recommend to walk and enjoy in the evenings.

I enjoyed a looooong walk along the whole corniche. There are runners and cyclists and Museums along the way with fantastic views and tourist attractions like the World Cup flags and countries with information. You can fish and take boat rides on the Dhow's and visit some parks along the way. The traffic is busy but the walkways are safe.
