Embracing the Gulf sea on one side with lovely green gardens and dancing fountains along the way, the Cornish stretches a generous 6 km with all its splendour to dazzle the Abu Dhabi visitor. The Cornish is a costal driveway that is one of most scenic areas in Abu Dhabi providing a variety of entertainment along its way.
The Cornish which is just twenty one miles away from the Air Port is easy to reach and whether cruising down the driveway in a vehicle or cycling across the breeze blowing from the sea or simply strolling down the coast, the serene beauty of the sea cannot be missed. Adding a delightful contrast to the miles of golden sand and turquoise blue sea, there is the lush green wilderness of gardens along the way as well as grand fountains which mingle their foamy spray with the salty breeze blowing from the ocean. The ‘Volcano’, ‘Dallah’ and the ‘Pearl’ fountain are some of the magnificent waterworks along the Corniche that is indeed delightful to behold.
A variety of entertainment is available for the whole family and that doesn’t include only coastal activities though that takes precedence. From awesome spots to dive and swim with definitely safe areas with the added advantage of lifeguards at your call, to nice serene spots on the beach for sunbathing to plenty of ground for beach sports, the amusement options are numerous and variable. Corniche is not a shoppers’ paradise but there are kiosks selling essential beach wear and items along this coastal belt. For those who are fond of dinning indoors, there is a great variety of restaurants to enjoy a hearty meal after a day spent in beach sports and sun bathing.
After a day in the sun and sand, there are many great Abu Dhabi hotels that one could get into pamper themselves. Amongst them The Millennium Hotel Abu Dhabi ranks high on the list of Luxury Hotels Abu Dhabi with its super prime location overlooking the gulf sea and within easy reach of the business district and shopping mall and lavishly heaped with luxuries that only a five star hotel can boast of.
