Abu Dhabi Holidays

The capital of the United Arab Emirates has some of the best beaches in the world, but holidays to Abu Dhabi are about much more. Take a cruise of the islands that surround the city, do a spot of deep sea fishing in the Arabian Gulf, go scuba diving in ship wrecks, try your hand at water skiing at Beach Rotana or even travel out into the desert and go sandboarding.

And the fun need not stop there on Abu Dhabi luxury holidays; you can ride a quad bike across the desert, ride horses and camels through the sand dunes, drive a race car at the Yas Marina Circuit, where the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix takes place, and play golf at the world-class Yas Links course. If you would prefer something a little more urban, you will love the shimmering Abu Dhabi Mall, the stunning Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, and of course the exquisite hotels and resorts you will find across the city.

Abu Dhabi is a foodie's dream, with eateries running the gamut from independent cafes serving traditional fare to world-class restaurants with menus created by celebrity chefs. The latter often serve Lebanese, north Indian and Persian cuisine, as well as Emirati, while contemporary local seafood dishes such as grilled scallops are popular at the latter. Shisha cafes are the place to go to soak up the city’s atmosphere, as well as enjoy a flavoured water pipe and a refreshing cocktail.
