Kayak in the Eastern Mangroves

A brilliant way to explore a huge national park filled with wildlife

Kayak in the Eastern Mangroves

One thing we love about the UAE’s capital is that it’s not all about stunning skyscrapers, impressive landmarks and long stretches of golden sands (although we do love those things, too).

The lush greenery and azure waters of the Eastern Mangroves are truly a sight to behold, so a visit should be right at the top of your Abu Dhabi bucket list.

You can see them up-close by diving in for a fun-packed kayak session. Pick up a paddle and explore Abu Dhabi’s beautiful landscapes during a trip through the Gulf waters.

You can try out the activity during a stay at the luxurious five-star Eastern Mangroves Hotel & Spa by Anantara, which overlooks the waterways or just pop down any time and approach any of the operators off the promenade.

There really isn’t a better way of taking in the vast mangrove forests. You can even journey to some of the emirate’s huge network of idyllic islands while in the waters.
