Things to do in Abu Dhabi
Holidays in Abu Dhabi aren't complete without a visit to The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. As one of the largest mosques in the world, the architectural marvel is decorated mainly in white and gold, with Swarovski crystal chandeliers garnishing the inside. The mosque’s library, located on the upper floor of the Northern Minaret, includes collections of over 50,000 rare editions of manuscripts and Arabic calligraphy.
The Corniche, a waterfront promenade that stretches for six kilometres, is another top tourist attraction in Abu Dhabi. Along it there are a host of cafes, restaurants and ice-cream parlours, as well as go-karting tracks. You can also cycle along the Corniche and take in the outstanding views.
Away from the bustling city, there is the Garden City of Al Ain. Abundant in greenery, the Al Ain National Museum is home to palm plantations with cool shaded walkways that transport you from the noisy city centre to a lush tranquil haven.
Located on the edges of the Empty Quarter is the Liwa Oasis. For a unique desert experience, have a go at sand skiing on some of the world’s largest dunes. Alternatively, you could hire a 4x4 for some dune bashing. You can also discover the ancient and traditional sport of falconry at a desert retreat.
Abu Dhabi beaches
Abu Dhabi boasts lots of beaches that offer an escape from the city, where you can soak up the rays and enjoy the shimmering turquoise waters. Book yourself an all inclusive Abu Dhabi holiday for beach access moments from your door.
Corniche beach is very popular with families due to its Blue Flag rating, shallow waters with floating fences and lifeguards keeping watch. The beach is rather busy but does offer sun loungers and parasols, as well as ample parking.
Another Blue Flag beach is Al Bateen which overlooks Hudariyat Island and Hudariyat Bridge to the west of Abu Dhabi. The views here are picturesque and the clear water is popular with locals for fishing, swimming and waterfront picnics. If you are looking for some action then the beach is ideal to play beach volleyball and the nearby water sports centre offers various activities.
Strictly for women, the Al Bateen Beach for Women also has the prestigious Blue Flag award for sustainability and accommodates up to 1,100 women and children in its waters. The beach is extremely safe with privacy being a priority.
Home to the Al Gharbia Watersports Festival, Mirfa Beach is the Western Region's only developed beach. It's very quiet with little crowds and a children's play area. Camping is also popular.
