Island for leisure and luxury
At times the magic of the Orient can still be felt. Even in a country where luxury is obviously a matter of course and where the hotels see themselves as comfortable oases for the senses. The United Arab Emirates are something of a growth machine – a dream in the desert sands. But there is also the somewhat different Abu Dhabi. It is on the doorstep of the metropolis, embraced by the warm waves of the Persian Arabian Gulf: the island of Saadiyat.
On the doorstep of Abu Dhabi
The water taxi only has to cover half a kilometer from the port of Abu Dhabi. After five hundred meters, the visitor to Saadiyat enters an island that is as natural as it is artificial. It is 27 square kilometers in size, and it was not only created by heaped sand, but here there was still a mangrove belt on the coast several years ago. But the immediate vicinity of the power center of Abu Dhabi meant that Saadiyat changed face completely within a very short time. Today the small island presents itself as a refuge for leisure, luxurious well-being and of course for financial transactions of all kinds.
Cultural hotspot for Arabia
Manarat Al Saadiyat – Place of Enlightenment! Saadiyat’s planners gave the impressive visitor center this name. Among other things, the vision of a cultural hotspot in the Arab world is presented here. The Guggenheim Abu Dhabi Museum and the Zayed National Museum are to be built there. For this purpose, the pavilion that the United Arab Emirates built for the 2010 World Exhibition in Shanghai was dismantled. It should soon be taking up exhibitions and inviting people to all kinds of events.
Turtles as remnants of nature
World-class golfer Gary Player was the inspiration behind the design of the Saadiyat Beach Golf Club, which is bordered by the island’s sandy beaches. There are already two five-star resorts: St. Regis and Park Hyatt. But a little bit of nature has remained: the hawksbill turtles still lay their eggs on the nine-kilometer-long beach.
The “Corniche” promenade in Abu Dhabi, the capital of both the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and the United Arab Emirates, runs directly on the Persian Gulf and is a special attraction. It is located in the northwestern part of the city, is about eight kilometers long and leads in an arch from the Emirates Palace Hotel and from the five Etihad Towers to the northeast to the Heritage Park near the Al Mina fish market and the Mina Zayed harbor. Opposite the Corniche is the elongated island of Al Lulu.
There are several ways to explore the Corniche: Visitors can take a taxi and marvel at the imposing tall buildings that house elegant hotels, banks and shopping centers. Those who prefer to be active themselves should avoid the midday and afternoon heat. Only when it cools down is the Corniche populated by walkers, skaters, runners and cyclists, for whom a separate area is provided. The Corniche is very popular with the residents of Abu Dhabi – especially in the evenings and on the weekend, which lasts from Friday to Saturday. The numerous parks, cafés, restaurants and shops along the boulevard are then well attended.
The “Corniche Beach” is the biggest attraction. In the summer months the water temperature is 30 to 32 degrees, the water is clean and the blue flag is blowing. The artificially raised and wide beach is four kilometers long, it starts at the Hilton Beach Club and ends near Sheikh Rashid Bin Saeed Street. Much of it is open to the public, some sections are reserved for families and couples. Single men are denied entry here, but they are welcome on Al Sahil Beach and in all public sectors. Appropriate swimwear is essential, kisses and tender touches are not welcome, and it is forbidden to bring alcohol.
