Tim and I were looking for the perfect weekend at the beach and we found it in the heart of Abu Dhabi: Al Bahar.
When we first visited Al Bahar a few months back, they just opened and as it was still super hot here in the UAE which didn’t let us stay too long. Last weekend when we came back, it was just amazing and I am going to tell you why.
Al Bahar has the perfect location. In the middle of Abu Dhabi, at the Corniche, with an amazing view of the capital’s skyline. Even if we drive there from Yas Island it takes us only around 25 minutes to reach and if you live in the city it will be only around 5-10 minutes for everyone of you.
There is valet parking available which is very convenient and additionally many parking spots across the street or in then Nation Towers.
With more than 20 outlets, Al Bahar has a lot to offer. Tim and I had lunch at Cupaghwa and tried also their signature drinks, the fruity Maldives mocktail and the Spanish latte. Additionally, we also had a delicious coffee specialty including mini donuts at Depresso and a burger at Stuffed Burger. Yes, I know, we ate a lot that day but it was just super delicious!
Al Bahar has a lot to offer! You can easily burn all your calories from the food you ate before. You can choose from:
- playing basketball, volleyball, beach soccer and much more…
- train at Fitness by the shore
- train at the free outdoor gym right on the opposite of the basketball court
- go for a little swim or walk down the beach
- check out AquaFun (an inflatable water park on the sea)
- go for a Stand Up Paddle ride and enjoy the nice water
So, I am sure you can now believe that you won’t get bored here 😉 Another aspect I really liked was that there is also a live band playing every evening on the weekend up from 7 pm and that there are dancers, musicians and other artists entertaining the visitors. You can get a cosy spot on top of the restaurants roof terraces and watch the crowd from above and enjoy the fresh breeze. Tim and I really loved our Saturday at Al Bahar. It felt like a little vacation even if it was right in the middle of the city. Now, especially during the colder months, it’s such a great place for young and old people. It has something to offer for everyone of you we can promise 🙂
