    One of the best beaches where i have had the oportunity to bathe and enjoy during the time I live in Khalidiya has been on the corniche beach. Really a quiet beach, celan and relatively close even to get there walk.
    Perphaps the only thing that the beach lacks to be more comfortable is to have some umbrellas in the public area to cover yourself from the sun.
    My husband and I used to train for triathlon swimming there al 6 am.

    We had the best family day ever here. Everything about this place is just perfect - from the food to the pool, to the beach, to the facilities and of course the service. Sarwan was especially great and offered exceptional service! Definitely recommend and would come here with my friends or family every weekend if we could!

    Gained complimentary access to Yas Beach through a hotel I staying at - definitely recommend. We walked about 15 minutes to get there - it wasn't too busy and there was plenty of sun loungers to pick. The children were a little bored but it's a nice peaceful retreat, calm water and a diving platform. Security is on hand to search bags but we were able to bag up the children's snacks, leaving them with security and access them throughout our visit. We took our own water and ordered drinks from the bar also. Compared to some other beaches we visited during our stay in the UAE this one was the best - for ambiance, space and general vibe. Showers available for free.

    Very nice beach with a huge area for a walk or run. Extremely large biking track in the cost area. Few caravan concepted cafes are available but over priced. There is a place called Marsana recently open with more activities and restaurants which will enhance the area further. Lot of sports courts are available but not operational as of now due to COVID. Nice place to have a small picnic as well. Would recommend for friends and family gatherings.

    You already known that no water in Desert.Do you believe that desert have not only water but also sea?United Arabic Emirates country have shown the beach in desert place.If you want to taste cold and hot at the same time,let me advice please go to Abu Dhabi beach.The country is hot but the wind of beach is cold by natural.When you visit there,you will understand very well the UAE what is the traditional dress of UAE.Everyone can grill roast in the Parks.Al Khalideya Park,Family Park,Formal Park,Bainunah Park,Heritage Park,Electra Park are nearly the Abu Dhabi Beach(Corniche Beach).You can ride the Bicycle around the Beach and Parks.How you think?Is beautiful the Abu Dhabi Beach?Sure!The Corniche Beach is so so beautiful.You must happy when you go there.You should go there at evening.You can swim without scare because many lifeguards are always watching around the beach in there.If you want to walk around the Beach,it is take time almost one hour.One of the Mall of Abu Dhabi,Al Marina Mall(waterfront shopping & entertainment hub) is nearly the beach.If you are alone also you no need to scare!UAE is the safety place by 24hours.UAE is the 31st safest country in the world.So,you can visit anytime the beautiful place around the beach.Thanks!

    We were lucky to have come during the National Day weekend. We caught the guys rehearsing for the airshow and were treated to a great show. Also caught the fireworks later that night.
    Nice place to have drinks and unhealthy food (haha) by the beach.
