A five-mile stretch across the Arabian Peninsula, the Corniche is Abu Dhabi’s most happening strip and the everyday hangout spot for the locals. From food trucks, street performances, and ice cream carts, the area is lively from the noon on to the late hours of the night. People love to walk, cycle, and chat on the long waterfront strip facing the Arabian Sea.
Being a center of many fun activities, there are plenty of new hotels built around the area, but it still does not get as busy with tourists as Yas. It does get quite busy in the winters when the temperature drops to a more pleasant range. The Abu Dhabi Food Festival takes place at the Corniche with other concerts and open-air shows on the public beach across summer, but most of the activities happen when the weather gets cooler. To avoid the crowd, there are private beaches for families and couples at the Corniche with a small entrance fee.
A short stroll away from the buzzing strip is Servcorp Coworking space and Haibu Space Coworking which is open around the clock. After you put in your daily hours, you can walk down to the Corniche where there is a plethora of cafes and restaurants of all kinds on the strip. The Lounge Cafe, Cafe Bateel, and Milestones Coffee Corniche are open from morning to midnight and are the most suited for remote working for their chic interior and waterfacing locations.
