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.

Even if you are solo this tour is worthwhile!
My mother is in her late 60’s and she is visiting me in Dubai. I was worried about her not enjoying the tour by herself but she loved it. She raved about the other passengers abd said her tour guide was kind and very knowledgeable. She said the driver was also excellent. She enjoyed every part of it!!!

Full-Day Abu Dhabi City Tour from Abu Dhabi
We had a great experience with our guide Benny. Very personable and knowledgeable having the ability to answer any questions we there at him. He was proactive in reaching out to us before - giving us advice regarding current Covid restrictions and we ended up having no issues during our tour. I would highly recommend doing this type of tour if visiting.

We were not allowed in Abu Dhabi because our covid test had been held 3 days prior to our trip. However Viator changed our trip to the desert safari which was very enjoyable. Thank you for being flexible.

Ebrahim was the most amazing tour guide. Being able to tour these places with a local makes the experience so much better. At every location that we stopped he took the time to make it the best experience for us. Everything was breathtaking and he really takes care of you through out the entire journey. I would 100% recommend this tour.

Full-Day Tour of Abu Dhabi City From Dubai, Day Trip with Guide
Absolutely amazing, I upgraded to a private tour as I wanted to go at my own pace and I had the driver Mustafa. Went to louvre, emirates palace and Sheikh Zayed mosque, unfortunately my iphone 12 battery died and I had to borrow the camera from my driver who helped me to take some nice photos. Good time to go, you just need PCR test and Green on al hosn app (as of time of writing) but I had the whole place to myself

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!

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.

Rent a Bike at the Corniche
