Morning on the coast
For a slice of local life, make an early morning round of Abu Dhabi’s Al Mina Fish Market, where you’ll find traditional wooden boats docked along Dhow Harbour after a night at sea. Local fishermen mend their nets and tend to giant lobster pots, or fill their free time with card games and laughter. Inside the market, with the catch fresh off the boat, locals browse for the pungent catch of the day. Never mind the prospect of lots of tasty seafood, the fish market is a visual feast of colour, texture and design – and a great start to your day in Abu Dhabi.
