We enjoyed walking along the Corniche during the day. It was pretty empty but the views are great as one side is the beach and the other is the city. Lots of little parks along the way as well. Nice area.

Good for people watching and a general stroll in the evening! I would say it would be too hot during the day. Some shops selling goods and food establishments selling fast food type goods!

Good place for kids,kind of a very long walk through the entire Corniche. May not be suitable to walk the whole way with kids and senior citizens. But good place to spend time in the evenings. The beach front is also good to spend time.

Nice safe spot for a stroll, very safe evening and night time. Lovely to have the sea and the amazing Abu Dhabi skyline in the background. Some of the beaches here are private, but it is a nice spot for a stroll.

If you are into fitness, then the Corniche is for you. Otherwise, avoid it. The cafe's is overpriced and food is really terrible. Beach is always crowded. Rather go to Saadiat beach or Yas beach.

If you’re staying on the corniche I suggest you start at your hotel and just choose a direction to walk. Plenty along the way to see or hotels to stop at for a meal or refreshments.
