Al Bateen beach is small, rather clean, and quite comfortable. But some say it is not the best place in Abu Dhabi to have a beach time.
On the beach, you can not rent an umbrella or sun lounger. However, there are changing cabins, showers, toilets, several cafes, as well as kiosks where you can buy food and drinks. There are several sports grounds near the beach, and walking paths are laid along the water. There is a playground on the beach.
Part of Al Bateen Beach is open only to women and children (including boys, but only up to 7 years old).
Al Bateen Beach offers an original view of the bridge connecting Abu Dhabi with Al Hudayriat Island. More recently, this bridge was called “the bridge that leads to nowhere”, and today a large amusement park for the whole family has been opened on the other side of the bridge, which includes attractions, children's and sports grounds, a beautiful embankment, bike paths and places for recreation.
The entrance to the beach is free.
