  • 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.
