  • Amazing place to visit with kids and family. The beach has a decent amount of activities to cater to families with toddlers with ample parking, playgrounds, refreshments and gardens.
  • Beach timing depends on the tide, best place to spend evening at Abu Dhabi. Very neat and clean with all amenities.
  • It's a wonderful place to enjoy the free days with supper clean, safe and comfort beach, especially while it located in the middle of deserts. From here is really easy to link to the Malls and Heritage Village, then pay the view to Abu Dhabi Royal palace and Emirates Palace hotel. You should take the sunglasses and sun blocks and something to drink with you for this trip.
  • I like to have promenade here anytime. It’s quite, clean and convenient for everything You would like to do (jog, walk, swim or ride a bike). The gate #4 has many places with food, toilets and showers. But I prefer to start at the beginning and walk a lot till the Sheraton Hotel. Worth a visit especially in the mornings
  • Great beach, very clean and endless space. Also adorable beach chairs and umbrellas, very much recommended
