Abu Dhabi Corniche gets Blue Flag certification

Just five years ago, Abu Dhabi corniche was not even categorized as a beach or place to visit other than just walking or jogging. Abu Dhabi is the capital city of United Arab Emirates where Dubai is the second largest city.

I Must say Abu Dhabi Government done a great job at the Corniche, worked started two years ago and turn out to be the best beach to visit, in which Abu Dhabi they never had that before. 
Beach with life guards on duty, shades for min charges, chairs, showers on the beach and clean toilets. Round O'clock security beach guards. Safe for family and couples. Beach is clean with white sand. The only not to expect is the waves as the beach is not direct with the main ocean as beaches in Dubai. There is a Lulu Island and wave breakers around it.

There is a section to enter for a entrance fee of about less than US$3.00 where there is beach shade and other facilities and another section is for free, but still one can use the showers from the public toilets located not far from the beach. Coffee shops and other outlets sell refreshments so not to worries if you feel need to have a snack or a drink.
