Awesome place! they took kayaks for a 2-hour tour - did not regret it. Among the mangroves there is a lot of living creatures - fish swim, crabs are everywhere, three herons, saw a pair of flamingos and all this is practically in the center of the modern metropolis! This place is directly specially created for those who are not used to the desert landscapes of the UAE and miss the green vegetation.

Description:

Mangrove forest with over 60 species of birds, plus channels for kayaking & other water activities.

Just outside Abu Dhabi city center, the sprawling swathes of the Mangrove National Park continue to be one of the emirate’s most important ecological assets. Protected by the Environment Agency Abu Dhabi (EAD), the Mangrove National Park constitutes about 75 percent of the total mangrove forest area in the UAE and is a biodiversity hotspot that includes mangrove forests, salt marshes, mudflats, and algal communities.

Most often found growing in the sea waters of tropical and sub-tropical coastal areas, the indigenous trees of the mangroves act as a natural windbreak, protecting the region against tidal surges and purify the surrounding water. The water body is also highly effective at removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.  A real haven for nature lovers, the mangroves are also home to a wide variety of different aquatic inhabitants, including crabs, herons, flamingos, and fish. The national park also provides a habitat for turtles, foraging foxes and marine mammals such as the dugong and dolphin.
