Family Fun in Abu Dhabi with Elegant Resorts
Abu Dhabi’s huge array of leisure facilities, attractions, beautiful white-sand beaches, watersports and exclusive beach clubs make Abu Dhabi a superb alternative to Dubai and an excellent option for families, too.
Theme parks such as Ferrari World, Hili Fun Park, Yas Waterworld and Murjan Splash Park will overwhelm visitors with their thrilling rides, waterslides, shopping opportunities and restaurants – Ferrari World on Yas Island can even lay claim to housing the world’s fastest rollercoaster! The Corniche, meanwhile, boasts Blue Flag-status beaches patrolled by lifeguards, safe swimming areas and children’s plagrounds. Alternatively, animal-loving families might like to head to one of Abu Dhabi’s zoos or wildlife parks, where children can enjoy learning about and interacting with a wide variety of animals. Al Ain Zoo has a number of interactive activities that children can enjoy, such as giraffe-feeding and camel-riding, and boasts an inspirational children’s garden that teaches biodiversity and the importance of recycling, and includes unusual indigenous plants and a series of vegetable fruit and herb gardens, while Arabian Wildlife Park spans half of Yas Island and is home to thousands of free-roaming animals. Natural wonders can also be explored at Al Ain Oasis, a calming alternative to the heat and frenzy of the city, with over a hundred varieties of palm tree to discover, while back in the centre of the city, Mushrif Central Park is a peaceful area comprising a number of elements that all the family can enjoy, such as an animal farm, botanical garden and a children’s garden featuring interactive play areas for the little ones and workout areas or the grown ups.
