Make sure you come by taxi or bus because there is no place to park BUT this is a good place just to walk and see the Mediterranean Sea. There are vendors on the corniche but they are not pushy or annoying. Take a jacket because most of the year you will get some cool breezes off the Sea.

Impressive walk, nice fresh air and a salty spray that can breath life into the most depressed. Many snacks available as you walk on by, along with a cart-horse, that can show you around. Most of the time though, traffic is really congested, so that cart won't go too far.

The breeze of the sea in a fine evening of winter. I enjoyed the scenery and environment, except for some egyptians disturbing us. Some even peed at the walls. But still fine, i still enjoyed the view. Missing egypt!

The corniche is very similar to others in middle east countries. Nothing special. It was visible from the apartment where we stayed.

The corniche is a nice relief for the sprawling city of Alexandria that stretches along the shore. The sea breeze and lapping waves bring a bit of calm to an other wise busy city. The Corniche spans from the Citadel to Montazah palace, including the Library, Stanley Bridge and San Stefano along the way. Near the icons of the city... More

It will be always my favourite spot or walking you can get a grilled corn and have a walk, however if you went there by June or July or August will be a lot of people.

Love walking down here it's so lovely and chilled. You have brilliant views of the sea, fishermen and boats. Nice walk if your alone or with the family.

After 42 years, I was so excited that I will see my favorite attraction of Alexandria, the long waterfront corniche, that takes you from one end of the city to the other, walking or driving. I was so disappointed at the state of this once beautiful street, that is now an insanely busy highway. Piles of garbage and leftover construction... More

A nice place to walk along the corniche - great view of the fort and city. Good for a stroll and a nice break from the busy traffic
