Abu Dhabi Corniche extends across an impressive eight kilometers of manicured waterfront that includes children’s play areas, separate cycles and pedestrian pathways, cafes and restaurants and the corniche beach which is lifeguarded and safe. The Cornich forms a sweeping curve on the western side of the main Abu Dhabi island and is replete with cycle paths, fountains and park areas. Land was reclaimed (between 2002 and 2003) from the sea and the Corniche was extended. Marina Mall is located across from the Corniche and can be accessed using a narrow breakwater road. At Marina Mall, the UAE Flag is hoisted and holds the record for being one of the tallest Flag poles in the world. Lulu Island is opposite the corniche and the Emirates Palace Hotel is at the southern end. There are a number of skyscrapers at the northern end, with newer taller skyscrapers being built on the southern end.
Abu Dhabi Corniche Beach is lengthy and stretches from Corniche Road near the Hilton Hotel to beyond Al Khaleej Al Arabi Street; there you will find the main entrance. In the week it is easy to find a beach umbrella, but during the weekend they finish quickly, so be early birds to get it. You are not allowed to swim very far, there floating fences to keep you within 40 meters of the beach and there are lots of lifeguards around. Abu Dhabi’s serene Corniche has been awarded the prestigious Blue Flag status (the internationally renowned eco-label for beaches and marinas that offer clean and safe bathing water).
Around 30,000 to 50,000 visitors flock to the Corniche every month, visiting the three section s for families, singles and the general public. There are around 1,100 free parking spaces within five minutes’ walk to the beach. It charges AED 10 entry to the family and single sections. To the general public area it is free entry.
