Apart from the iconic Sheikh Zayed Mosque and the famous Ferrari World, Abu Dhabi has also got some of the most mesmerizing beaches in the UAE. From a private beach near your hotel to public beaches in the city, there are various places to pick from for relaxing with your loved ones. So, there’s no doubt that there are all kinds of Abu Dhabi beaches to soothe your mood, mind & soul.
1. Al Bateen Beach
This spot is popular with both expats and locals, thanks to its family-friendly vibe. The beach is also popular for fishing and swimming.
The waters are very calm and the views from the 800m stretch of sand are equally soothing. You can see the Hudayriat Bridge, which leads to the newly opened Hudayriat Island, whether you’re lying on your towel or over at the children’s playground.
And if you are feeling a little active, you can hire kayaks or stand-up paddleboards and get out on the water. There are also a handful of cafés, around 100 car parking spaces and plenty of lifeguards on duty.
