If sun and salt water tickle your senses, then a trip to the Corniche will be on your agenda in Abu Dhabi. There is nothing quite like taking a dip in the warm waters of the Arabian Gulf or sinking your feet in the silky sand beneath a lounge chair or cabana. Beaches on the Corniche are organized into different zones and managed by different organizations, from hotels to beach management companies like Bake. Since beaches have different requirements for entry, it’s worth taking a look at visitabudhabi.ae or Bake’s website to figure out which area will suit you best. Gate 3 on the Corniche leads to a family beach area where you can relax and build sandcastles with your kids. It also has a play area for the little ones just outside the beach entrance. Al Sahil Beach, on the other hand, is designed for singles, groups, and bachelors.
