From the minute you step off the plane and into this lively UAE capital, you’ll be greeted with a striking cityscape harnessing an abundance of top hotels, chic restaurants and stylish cocktail bars.
If you’re feeling less adventurous on your city breaks in Abu Dhabi, cycling along the Corniche offers spectacular views. Rent a bike from one of the nearby stations, as well as great self-powered go-cart style bikes if you’ve got the kids in tow. A relaxing alternative is to take a boat to the luxurious Yas Island, where you’ll find a great range of attractions for fans of Formula One. Abu Dhabi has little in the way of historic attractions, but that’s not to say you’ll be spoilt for choice for other things to do. The Sheikh Sayed Grand Mosque is a must-see for anyone looking for a dose of culture while the Saadiyat Public beach offers an ideal spot to make the most of long sunny afternoons on your Abu Dhabi city breaks. For a welcome retreat from the bustling city, pay a visit to nearby Al Ain. Renowned as the Garden City, this area is abundant in greenery – with the Al Ain National Museum boasting palm plantations and cool shady walkways to transport you from the noise of the city centre to a tranquil haven.

You’ll find many ways to explore Abu Dhabi’s landscape, especially if you’re looking for an active holiday. With the city surrounded by water, it’s no surprise that jet-skiing has become increasingly popular, with many locals escaping at the weekend to nearby uninhabited islands.
