Escape the hustle of the city and explore a haven for avian and marine species native to Abu Dhabi at the serene Jubail Mangrove Park, a sanctuary with refreshing green spaces and incredible photo opportunities.
This UAE jewel in Abu Dhabi’s crown is home to meandering boardwalks that allow you to wander through the mangroves, discovering a nature-rich side to Abu Dhabi and spotting an array of wildlife, from turtles to herons, gazelle, and more. Birdwatchers, nature lovers, and photographers will be in their element here.
This one-of-a-kind, family-friendly park aims to enhance awareness, appreciation, and understanding of the important ecological function of the city’s mangrove habitats, which not only support biodiversity and protect the Abu Dhabi coastline but also help prevent climate change by sucking up carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases and trapping them in their flooded soils for millennia. The stunning Jubail Mangrove Park is the first self-contained educational, nature, and leisure destination of its kind in the emirate.
The boardwalk is only AED 15 to enter. Along it, you can meander through the partially submerged forests and witness the variety of fauna and wildlife that call this place home.
One of the most popular ways to explore the park is by kayaking. Head out on the waters in daylight or at the special time of sunset and get closer to the fauna that makes the mangroves so special. Prices for kayaking in Jubail Mangrove Park start from AED 89 with other forms of water transport on offer too including electric dragon boats.
Why not make the most of the park’s peaceful atmosphere and take part in morning yoga and other wellness sessions? Visit the park’s website for more information.
