Corniche Road, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

The Basics

The Corniche is a popular area for family recreation. On warm, sunny days, snag a spot under an umbrella at Corniche Beach at either the public, family, or singles entrances, and cool off with a plunge in the designated swimming area.

In the evenings, you can join locals strolling along the well-paved promenade or sit in one of the landscaped parks and gardens scattered along the way. Be sure to bring your camera, as the Corniche offers spectacular views of Abu Dhabi’s skyline and unobstructed panoramas of the turquoise water.

The tour was good. All the stops are only photo ops except for the lunch and the mosque. If you really just want to see the mosque, book a different trip

Abu Dhabi City Tour Including Ferrari World Tickets Guided Tour from Dubai
The whole trip was amazing despite the current situation that has happened. From the beginning our travel guide Mounir was so welcoming and greeted up with open arms. He showed as much as he could and done everything in his power to try and make our trip as special as possible. Me and my friends had an amazing time!

Abu Dhabi: Grand Mosque, Etihad Towers & Royal Palace Visit from Dubai
Wonderful tour and our tour guide was excellent. He was very informative and nice. And Abu Dhabi was remarkable. You have to see it in person because words and pictures cannot do the Mosque any justice.

We had a great tour with our knowledgable, pleasant and easy going guide Muhammad Imran Khan. We had plenty of time to explore all the attractions visited, like the impressive Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, the view from 300 metres in the Etihad towers, the Corniche and the Presidential Palace (with music corps). We highly recommend this tour.

Lovely trip, very clean cities. Would not do this trip in summer. UAE has a large number of foreign workers who speak a multiple of languages. Staff at all venues were helpful and appreciative of visitors.

When to Get There

The beach is least crowded during the week; on the weekend, it can be very hard to find a free umbrella. For the best weather, consider visiting during the spring or fall. In the summertime, the beaches are quite hot, but an evening walk along the promenade is still a popular pastime.
