The Corniche

The Corniche is an area frequented by locals and tourists alike, and the promenade is a wonderful stretch of land perfect for an evening walk. There is a beach in the area, and an evening dhow boat ride offers wonderful vistas of the shoreline.

Do & See

Abu Dhabi’s attractions are diverse and vary from landmark architectural triumphs to centuries-old structures and beaches. The Corniche sweeps along the waterfront from one side of the city to other, passing by the lavishly-planted Al Markaziyah Gardens, one of the many parks in the city, and Lulu Island across the water, which is delightful with its palm trees and nature reserve.
