In Abu Dhabi for only one day? A’l Bahar at the Corniche offers a peek into capital style, life, and fun like no other spot.
Relish global cuisine? Does walking on water float your boat, or would you prefer to just bask on a sun lounger and watch? If doing sit-ups before you enjoy a cheeseburger is more your style, make A’l Bahar your new Corniche hangout! A’l Bahar means “on the beach” in Arabic, and this spot means business when it comes to enjoying the best of the beach in Abu Dhabi.
No visit to Abu Dhabi would be complete without a visit to the beach, but what if there were a beach that had it all: shopping, fitness, fun, and dining? There is now, and it’s called A’l Bahar at the Corniche.
From premier fitness facilities to watersports, a children’s playground to an al fresco food court, there is something for all ages to do throughout the day and into the night along the Corniche. Weekly promotions, entertainment, and seasonal events make A’l Bahar a vibrant place to visit during your stay in the capital.
Walk on Water
The weather is perfect for getting out onto the water, and Aquafun’s inflatable waterpark is an ideal water playground. The 84-piece obstacle course lets adventure seekers step up bridges and glide down ramps, sliding into the warm and inviting Arabian Gulf.
Dine around the World
A’l Bahar has delivered the world’s cuisines to Abu Dhabi’s beachfront. Craving a burger? Hit up Dough, Stuffed Burger, and Eat Sol. Keen to try a taste of Arabia? Grab a shawarma at Meshwari then a traditional Cupagahwa. Urban Seafood and Miyabi Sushi serves unforgettable sea fare and Japanese favourites. Authentic Latin flavours can be found at Casa Latina and Barbacoa. Pascal Tepper and Scratch offer a taste of Europe, while Marl’s Organic serves light bites. Margherita’s delicious wood-fired pizzas are decadent. Haagen
Dazs, Crêpe De Licious, and Churros will soothe the most savage sweet tooth. Depresso and Tim Horton’s serve quirky coffees and Filli specialises in lovely teas if you are just looking for a caffeine jolt.
Bring the Family
A’l Bahar is a lifestyle destination with its 600m promenade that bursts with fun, thrills, and food! Little ones will love the beach, shaded playground, and bungee trampolines. While adults will appreciate the health and wellbeing options and immense variety of cuisines on offer. On weekends, the beach is busy with family gatherings and seaside fun, and the promenade buzzes with events and entertainment.
Fitness Al Fresco
The fitness facilities at A’l Bahar make it easy to maintain your regular exercise while travelling. Michael Haddin, owner of Haddins Gym, says,“stay physically active by
incorporating your sightseeing at the same time as your exercise when you visit A’l Bahar.”
Head to the beachfront Fitness by the Shore and drop in on a boxing, beach boot camp,
yoga or triathlon class to keep up your fitness levels whilst on holiday. Or try out the free
public gym or running and cycling track on the Corniche.
