This Thursday Abu Dhabi recently launched its new public beach on one of its most idyllic islands Kai Beach Saadiyat.
It is in the same place as the previous Saadiyat public beach. This place closed when Abu Dhabi restricted access to beaches and parks across the emirate to prevent the spread of coronavirus. It never fully reopened.
The booze-licensed beachfront oasis features macramé umbrellas, wooden loungers, and handcrafted driftwood tables; which is managed by Saadiyat Beach Club.
Operated by Aldar, Kai Beach Saadiyat will welcome visitors daily from 7am to sunset without reservations. It will work in order of arrival.
Visitors will need to show green status on the Al Hosn app, or a negative PCR test taken within 48 hours, in order to enter the pristine 500-meter-long coastline and turquoise waters of the Arabian Gulf. Standard entrance fees start at Dh75 on weekdays and Dh95 on weekends and holidays. Children under 6 years old are free, and those 6 to 12 years old pay cheap entrance fees.
Rates are slightly more expensive than the site’s predecessor, which started at Dh25. However, all visitors will have access to a sun lounger.
Towels will not be provided during the soft launch phase, but this will change when the beach fully opens in October.
Beachgoers visiting Kai Beach will be able to purchase food and drinks from the MLT food truck, but outside food will not be accepted in the vicinity.
When the venue fully opens, there will be a beachside restaurant on site.
There is a wide range of soft drinks and house drinks for sale, including iced coffees and fresh juices. Shisha will also be available and guests can order it on their sun loungers.
Showers, changing rooms, and restrooms are offered at Kai Beach, making it easy and convenient to freshen up after a visit.
There is also free off-site parking. Reported Emirates Herald, news and information agency.
