If you are lucky enough to know someone who lives in Al Zeina, be certain to make use of their beach access. The sand is clean, the water is fairly well protected from high surf, and the atmosphere is perfect for gazing across the waterway at Yas Island, floating under the cloudless sky, or parking yourself in the sand for an entire day.
Kayaks, canoes, and some other beach toys can be rented at a kiosk on the beach. A small park area nearby is perfect for a picnic.
If being a beach bum isn't your style, the neighborhood has lovely pathways along the waterfront and throughout all of the villa and townhouses. With several restaurants and a supermarket on the street side of the development, Al Zeina is a lovely place to spend a day.
