  • One of the best place to just have stillness in the middle of a bustling metropolis. A good spot to see wild birds and flamingos. Also, one of the best cheap dates option. Best time to visit here would be during the cold months.

  • You never find this kind of place in the gulf. Amazing place for bird lovers. Thousand of flamingos. There are two feeding times (Morning and evening) and that is the best time to visit as you will get chance to see all birds.
  • Drove here from Abu Dhabi to explore with my family. It was a great place to see the flamingos up close at the Flamingo Hide but also the Mangrove Hide had some great views of the birds in the area. Hard to approach, but if you are coming from the Ras Al Khor road heading west you are fine. The entrance is close to N 25° 11.120 E 055° 19.706 for the mangrove hide.
  • A very nice experience that should be avoided in the summer as there are very less birds and it is hot. There is no entrance fee but do go there only if you have a vehicle as it is very difficult to get taxi there.
