Rent a bicycle and ride along one of the longest seafront promenades in the Middle East.
How to take a bike ride along the Corniche promenade in Abu Dhabi
Every evening, the central Corniche seafront is filled with vacationers. From here you can see the coastal cafes, skyscrapers, fountains and a snow-white beach with a Blue Flag of Quality.

In 2002-2003, the strip of the coast was turned into a promenade. It is well landscaped - the Arabs love a desert, but it is compensated by the abundance of greenery in the city. Unlike many other seafronts, there're no loud merchants selling souvenirs or food.

Corniche seafront, Abu Dhabi

The promenade is long - 8 km. If you want to examine it from its beginning to the end - rent a bicycle.

How to do?

1. The main entrance to the promenade is on Al Khaleej Al Arabi Street. The opposite end is located near the Hilton hotel. The seafront extends along the road of the same name.

2. Rent a single or double bike in one of the rentals along the promenade. For example, two rentals are open at 26th Street and 30th Street junctions respectively.

3. Do not cycle too fast, otherwise you will miss the most interesting part - for example, here are the famous "Flying swans", "Coffee", "Pearl" and "Volcano" fountains.
