Beaches in Abu dhabi

Edit This

Introduction

Abu Dhabi is truly blessed with over 400 km of coastline boasting some gorgeous beaches that will not disappoint even the most experienced traveler. These Abu Dhabi beaches are equipped with the latest amenities such as barbecue and picnic facilities and you can indulge in fun activities on them such as water sports. As with many such tourist areas, it's better to avoid the high season which, typically, is when the weather cools down rather than when it heats up.

Corniche

The most appealing aspect of Abu Dhabi is the Corniche which is a redeveloped leisure zone running parallel to the sea offering an entertainment park, shopping malls and excellent restaurants. Its walkway allows one to roller skate, cycle and jog. Nearby are beautifully designed picnic grounds and parks that attract many visitors during high season but are still very pleasant places to spend your time. Many people, Abu Dhabi residents and visitors alike, are intensely proud of the Corniche and cite it as a real move forward in the history of the city.

New Beach

Abu Dhabi beaches just got better with the establishment of the beach attached to the Corniche. The beach opened in summer 2008 and offers a stunning range of attractions from designated safe swimming areas to luxury eateries to pathways, gardens and volleyball pitches. Kids can take pleasure in the specialized areas reserved for them and there are many conveniences. A new central building on the Corniche is under construction which will house a mosque, changing rooms and eating areas. The venue can be rented for parties, functions and family get-togethers and  serves very many useful purposes. Benches have been provided by the local council allowing visitors to relax, catch some excellent sights and sunbathe on this stand-out example of the best among Abu Dhabi beaches.

For Your Safety

On the beach, lifeguards overlook swimmers from 7 surveillance towers specially constructed to afford the best views of the surroundings. Visitors are restricted to swimming off the beach only at certain times of the day for their own safety. There are also almost 200 umbrellas to stop you from catching the sun too seriously. For added protection there are floating fences that stretch 50 meters into the sea which stop people from swimming too far out of their depth. You can also take peace of mind from the police station that has been newly built nearby this very best of the Abu Dhabi beaches.
