Sights

The small number of sights in this area are spread over a large distance, so expect to be hailing taxis to get around. Nature fans should definitely check out the Eastern Mangroves Promenade with its views of the mangrove forests and bundle of activities to get you out into the forests themselves. For more nature, Umm Al Emarat Park is a lush haven of landscaped greenery amid the bustling heart of the city – if you have wee ones in tow, the petting zoo here provides an extra distraction. For more relaxing family fun, hit Al Bateen beach.
