We want to draw attention to that all these hotels are allowed to their private beaches of third-party visitors for the fee. If any of them is nearby, then come, pay from 100 dirhams for the entrance and enjoy the sea and the sun. Current currency rate View in our article "Dirham UAE".
If not ready to pay, then welcome to public beaches. They are free, there are paid, but prices are more moderate – from 10 to 25 dirhams. Have to pay extra for the sun bed, an umbrella and a beach towel rental. And you can sunbathe on the sand on your own towel.
Do not forget that you need to get from the hotel to the public beach, it is unlikely to be within walking distance. It is most likely to go for a taxi. Visiting the beach will still cost money, at least for transport. About travel rates Read our article "Taxi in Abu Dhabi".
The perfect option is if the hotel organizes a free beach bus to its guests. Such hotels in Abu Dhabi are, but there are few of them. Read reviews about the hotel, there are already tourists who have already been written about it.
Which public beach to choose?
Our advice: Choose the one that is closer to which it will be cheaper to reach. Typically, tourists choose between the root and al-bat; as they are free. Choose that of them to which it is more convenient to get.
However, most Russian tourists do not think over this problem. Choose a hotel in other parameters, and then ask the hotel guide or at the receptionist, which of the public beaches is closest and traveling by taxi.
Rules of behavior
There is no strict dress code on public beaches in Abu Dhabi. Need a bathing suit and that it is not too frivolous. Naturally, it is impossible to be topless.
Here it is forbidden to drink alcohol or drunk. Read the details in our articles "What is impossible to the UAE" and "Alcohol in the UAE".
Go beyond the beach zone in a swimsuit is prohibited, it is punishable. And the phrase "I’m just for a minute of the soda of buying" will not help if you fall to the eyes of the policeman.
Another thing is private beaches of hotels where you can drink alcohol in the bar and be a little "under ShafE". The dress code here is softer, it happens that you can sunbathe topless. Rules Determines the hotel’s administration that owns the beach.
