We took a guided boat tour through the mangroves. Saw interesting fish, birds and a big turtle. Stopped for a short swim. An enjoyable afternoon.

Taking the round boat and swim around the Mangrove area is a lot of fun and great to do from October to May. It is a lot of fun for kids and a great event for the late afternoons.

great way to explore the outdoors. best at high tides. kayaks can be rented at the anantara hotel marina, not at the parking area before the hotel! (the latter has been cleared for a road project).

My family often visit me in Abu Dhabi and we love cruising around the mangroves in an eco donut. It slips along silently and you really get to see some interesting birdlife and on one trip we saw a family of desert foxes.
