From wildlife experiences to thrilling theme parks, Abu Dhabi is a firm favourite when it comes to family holidays in the UAE. Here are a few reasons why.
There are plenty of water sports for families to enjoy when at Abu Dhabi resorts by the ocean including snorkelling which is a perennial favourite. Wakeboarding, jet skiing and banana boat rides offer even more thrills, while stand-up paddleboarding and kayaking are great for some exploring too.
Families can embark on wildlife drives or nature walks at the Arabian Wildlife Park while on a stay at Desert Islands Resort & Spa by Anantara; expect to see sand gazelles, cheetahs, giraffes and more. More nature-based experiences await at the Eastern Mangrove Lagoon National Park home to diverse birdlife from pink flamingos to egrets.
The vast deserts of Abu Dhabi provide the ideal backdrop for a family adventure be it while camel trekking or dune bashing in a 4WD vehicle! Other activities to try here include quad-biking, sandboarding and fat biking, while some tours give you the chance to visit a Bedouin-style camp and enjoy a meal under the stars.
