Abu Dhabi yacht charter

Nature and culture harmoniously intertwine in Abu Dhabi to frame a diverse collection of adventures and experiences. The most sublime destination for leisurely island hopping, it has a wealth of idyllic sun, sand and sea hotspots to discover. Things move at a much slower speed than the nearby F1 track on Yas Beach, a private club with a distinctly Mediterranean vibe where lazy sun lounger moments are juxtaposed with thrilling watersports action. Paradise awaits at Nurai Island and a
short tender ride delivers you to a boutique resort where the drinks are sparkling, the spa is divine, and the food is five-star. Popular with local residents and located on Abu Dhabi island is Al Bateen Beach, a tranquil spot that also boasts Blue Flag status.

A visit to the UAE capital should factor in cultural exploration, and a guided tour of the landmark Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque tops the list. An architectural wonder, the courtyard’s marble mosaic artwork and reflective pools mirror the amethyst-and- jasper-embedded columns, while the interior features the world’s largest hand- knotted carpet. Pair this with a visit to Abu Dhabi Heritage Village, where a traditional souk, mosque and dwellings offers an immersive glimpse into the emirate’s past. For visiting gourmands, dinner reservations at the iconic Emirates Palace Hotel are a must. Princes, presidents and popstars have all stayed here, and with a choice of two Michelin starred venues – Hakkasan and Talea by Antonio Guida – this simply can’t be missed.

Walk off epicurean indulgence with a stroll along the city’s famous Corniche where the powdery sand beach and turquoise waters are synonymous with fun. Alternatively, for those seeking pure escapism, the Mangrove National Park is a stunning example of conservation commitment. The best way to explore this wildlife haven is by kayak, as you paddle deeper into a world that comprises almost 75 per cent of the total mangrove forest area of the UAE and home to hundreds of species of plant, birds and underwater life.
