Al Bateen Public Beach

overview

In recognizing a need for socially-responsible public spaces and access to public recreational amenities for Abu Dhabi residents, the Tourism Development and Investment Company sought a master plan for two centrally-located public beach facilities. These beach parks are to provide safe, family-friendly opportunities for leisure, recreation and social gathering throughout the day and night. Bathing and swimming, sporting, eating and shopping are to be the primary uses and attractors to the beach parks. Adequate parking shall be provided, but concealed below grade for purposes of security and quality of experience.

Al Bateen Beach Park is located in the neighborhood of the same name, and situated on the Grand Canal. The facilities include two eco parks on barrier islands with indigenous vegetation; multiple freshwater pools and a sporting zone; an events plaza and retail promenade; and a private beach club with spa and guest suites.
