Abu DhabiUnited Arab Emirates
Inviting luxury travellers to bask in the bliss of a superyacht hub, there is no doubt this magnetic destination of ancient allure and mystery will continue to capture the hearts of superyacht visitors...
A Breathtaking Culture
Whether visiting the iconic landscape of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, having a private picnic across its sand dunes or taking a speedboat across the Corniche Bay, Abu Dhabi merges ancient tradition with cosmopolitan luxury, all wrapped up for superyacht travellers. Guests can enjoy a plethora of luxury marinas, resorts and spas, as well as the best powder white sand beaches such as Zaya Nurai Island and Saadiyat Island, proving culture, beauty and opulence go hand in hand in the glistening jewel of the UAE.
Visit The Louvre Abu Dhabi for a dose of culture, take to Ferrari World for the adrenaline rush of a lifetime, or venture to the most sought after shopping experience at Yas Mall. Abu Dhabi's iconic experiences come in the dozen, and unlike its neighbour Dubai, has a more discreet allure promising bespoke privacy and seclusion across your superyacht stop-off. While many visitors stop-by the Falcon Hospital for an insight into Abu Dhabi's commitment to the safety of their regional animal, or others looking for a sun-soaked paradise of crystal waters under a baking sun, it is an all year round superyacht destination.
Although man-made wonders are what the UAE capital is known for, but it would be a mistake to discount the outstanding natural beauty that resides just outside the city of Abu Dhabi. Despite the glossy sheen of the young metropolis, Abu Dhabi has roots that can be traced back 3000 years. The region is ancient - a juxtaposition that makes it all the more intriguing.
Al Wathba Wetland Reserve presents a lesser known and uniquely beautiful side of a region known for its urban flair. Five square kilometres of wetlands harbour a stunningly diverse ecosystem of more than 250 bird and 37 plant species. Another must-see is the fossilised dunes roamed by pink flamingos in the distance.
The Eastern Mangrove Lagoon National Park is another natural gem often overshadowed by the glitz of Abu Dhabi city. Here, visitors pass relaxing hours kayaking through tranquil waters. For history lovers there is Al Ain Oasis; Al Ain, Abu Dhabi’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a self-sufficient water source creating a natural marvel filled with palm plantations, working farms and a series of mesmerizing water channels.
