Owner description: The Corniche is a glorious 3km walkway along the harbour dotted with restaurants, markets and historic sights.
Reviewed 4 April 2018

It's really just a long promenade lined (on the opposite side of the road) with some retail stores, hotels and restaurants. The day we were there, it was raining a lot, so we enjoyed it from our car as we drove towards Citadel Qaitbay! A lot of locals hang out here, as well as people from Cairo come here for the weekend.

Good place to take a long walk with your wife, to run or to walk your dog. Especially, at this time of the year. It gets very very crowded in the summer. I wouldn't recommend it on the summer time from June to August.

The best place for walking especially before sunset.. Also for cycling or running.. The view of the sea inspires me actually

The corniche of Alexandria has the most beautiful views of the Mediterranean sea. Walking along it is very interesting. Unfortunately it needs to be more clean

Like all the Mediterranean cities, Alexandria also boasts of a long waterfront where one can walk and enjoy the beauty of the sea and the atmosphere.
On the western end it starts near the Citadel and extends for around 10 km.
The area has good cafes and curio shops selling various Egyptian handicrafts.
