We adore corniche of Alexandria. There are many spots to enjoy with your family and friends. Many cafes and restaurants along the corniche.

There is nothing better in Alexandria than walking along the seaside and enjoying the weather and wonderful views.

Take some time to admire the many classic and modern buildings along the Corniche. Old names: Cecil Hotel (where we stayed 30 years ago), modern names: Bibiotheca Alexandrina.... Many fish restaurants. Enjoy the "beaches" and see how locals play in the water. Very nice.

The best way to see the Alexandria Corniche is by a boat ride. Just a few meters from the Bibliotheca Alexandria into the sea is the WW2 submerged plane which can be seen by scuba diving.
