Abu Dhabi Corniche is a seaside promenade that is stretched across eight kilometers of well-maintained water front bedecked with children’s play areas, separate pathways for pedestrians and cycles, cafes and restaurants. People from all walks of life enjoy the serene atmosphere which is the characteristic of Abu Dhabi’s iconic Corniche. More to surprise you there is the Corniche beach which is well equipped with life guards and clean, fresh water.
Abu Dhabi Corniche Beach This length and breadth of beach extends along the Corniche Road starting from the Hilton Hotel to beyond Al Khaleej Al Arabi Street, here you will find its main entrance. It is easy to find a beach umbrella during the week, but during the weekend they may all go quickly. There are floating fences to keep you within 40 metres of the beach and to guard you there are plenty of lifeguards.
Abu Dhabi’s unspoiled Corniche beachfront has received the coveted Blue Flag status of the internationally renowned eco-label for beaches and marina that guarantee clean and safe bathing water.
Around 30,000 to 50,000 visitors flock to the Corniche every month. There are separate sections for families, singles and the general public and there are more than 1,100 free parking spaces with a five minute walk of the beach, which charges AED 10 (US $2.7) for the family and single sections. You can enter the public beach free.
