If you’re looking to soak up Abu Dhabi’s famous year-round sunshine, Corniche Beach is one of the best places to do it.

Not just home to turquoise water and a soft white sand shore, Corniche Beach also boasts a beautiful seaside boardwalk, with well-kept walkways home to manicured gardens and benches overlooking the picturesque Arabian Gulf.

Sunset is a great time to capture a few photos, so don’t forget to bring your phone.

Some 30,000 to 50,000 visitors flock to the Corniche every month, with the 2km beach being divided into three sections: Al Sahil (Gate 4, free entry) is perfect for singles and larger groups, Gate 2 is ideal for families and has its own quiet zone, with Gate 3 also being great for families and kids. The two latter beaches are shielded from view with a fence. Showers, changing rooms and cabanas are available, and sun loungers and umbrellas can be hired for a fee. A lifeguard is on duty until sunset.

Abu Dhabi’s pristine Corniche beachfront has been awarded coveted Blue Flag status, with this internationally renowned eco-label for beaches and marinas guaranteeing clean and safe seawater.

A fun and healthy way to tour the Corniche is to hire a bicycle.
