Abu Dhabi boasts with pristine white beach and among the list is Yas Beach. Situated on the southern tip of Yas Island, thousands of people flock here year after year to have their dose of vitamin sea.
It was a smooth 15-minute ride from Capital Centre Arjaan and we are fortunate that there were available coasters to transport us to and from the beach. Entrance fee on Friday costs AED 50 for kids and AED 100 for adults. Outside drinks such as alcoholic drinks are strictly prohibited inside the club.
Yas Beach Club, as the place is collectively called, offers splash pool for the kids and the rest of the family. They have ample wash rooms and changing rooms separately for men and women. And you won’t go hungry as the place has a lot of snack shops who will serve food from Italian to Arabic, from ice cream to burger.
The long stretch of clear blue water is surrounded by chalets and cabanas for those who have extra money to indulge and beach beds which guests are free to use. When we arrived there, the whole are is packed with families, couple, and friends enjoying the summer heat on a Friday afternoon. Luckily we found our bench and ordered mixed grill from one of the snack shops. You can place your order at the counter or some one will order and served it for you. Plus points for this, as it’s more convenient for the guest.
Further down the shore is the new lounge beach which features an open-air DJ booth, infinity pool and bar surrounded by cabanas and chalets. It can be perfect venue if you wish to celebrate something special or if you wish to party with friends. The area though is restricted only for 21 years old and above plus has an entrance fee.
For sports enthusiast, the club also offers activities which they will surely enjoy. There is a company called Noukhada which can arrange a boat, snorkel or paddle board for you (for the complete list of activities, click here). The club also offers jetski, water sports activities, volleyball and outdoor gym. This can be a suitable venue for team building or corporate events or a friendly competition venue amongst friends.
As for us, we decided to stay on the beach bed and relax while enjoying the view and soaking under the sun. It was too hot for us as much as we want to dip on the water. We took a lot of photos instead, had enjoyed couple of drinks on the bar.
Yas Beach Club has something to offer for everyone, from kids to adults. We had enjoyed our stayed here and if not only because of the high temperature that time, I would love to try stand-up paddle board or kayaking. But I will reserve that for a future post maybe. Haha!
