This courniche is very secluded in the afternoon, therefore it's great if you wanna have some alone time or a leisurely walk along the water.

If you’re staying on the corniche I suggest you start at your hotel and just choose a direction to walk. Plenty along the way to see or hotels to stop at for a meal or refreshments.
