Reasons to visit Abu Dhabi

The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque

The largest place of worship in the UAE, the beautiful Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque can fit an incredible 40,000 people within its walls.

Blending architectural styles from across the Islamic civilisations, this remarkable structure is composed of four towering minarets, a trio of prayer halls and an exquisite mosaic courtyard. Inside the main hall you’ll find ornately woven carpets and one of the world’s largest handmade chandeliers.

Dress modestly and be respectful during your visit. Avoid shorts and skirts cut above the knee, and always keep your shoulders covered. Ladies will be loaned a traditional abaya (long cloak), with either a hood or a shawl to cover their hair.

Saadiyat's beautiful beaches and cultural treasures

Located less than 10 minutes from downtown Abu Dhabi, Saadiyat Island offers the chance to relax on blissful beaches and enjoy world-class cultural experiences.

The public beach is the perfect spot to sample Abu Dhabi’s warm turquoise waters. You’ll find everything you need here including sun loungers and parasols, showers, bathrooms and changing rooms, as well as a cafe nearby. For peace of mind, lifeguards are on duty throughout the day.

If you’re looking for an even more luxurious stint on the sands, there’s the option of spending the day at Saadiyat Beach Club. Home to a gorgeous pool, along with stylish restaurants, lounges and poolside cabanas, you can also enjoy spa, sauna and steam room facilities.

Head down the wooden walkway to the beach and you might spot dolphins frolicking in the bay or see one of the endangered Hawksbill turtles that have found a safe nesting place here. Nearby, you can get into the swing of things at Saadiyat Beach Golf Club – the first ocean course in the region.

Designed by award-winning architect Jean Nouvel, the stunning Louvre Abu Dhabi sits at the heart of the Saadiyat Cultural District. An art lover’s dream, the galleries include a Permanent Gallery and a Temporary Gallery featuring works on loan from renowned museums including the Louvre, Musee d’Orsay and Centre Pompidou.

Louvre Abu Dhabi brings different cultures together, celebrating the shared human experience through works of cultural, historical and sociological significance dating from ancient times right through to the modern era.

The building’s unique design contributes to the sense of wonder. The distinctive dome takes inspiration from traditional roofs of crisscrossed palm leaves, resulting in the shafts of sunlight creating playful patterns within the galleries.

Fun and thrills on Yas Island

A must-visit for any motorsport fan, the Yas Marina Circuit is believed to be the most expensive Formula 1™ track ever constructed.

Home to the iconic last race of the F1™ season, the Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, you can watch world-class motorsport here, or book a once-in-a-lifetime supercar driving experience during the off season. You can also enjoy go-karting on a smaller track adjacent to the circuit.

Keeping fit? On certain evenings, you can even head to the track for a jog or bike ride; with music pumping, it’s a great opportunity to take on the track for yourself.

Yas Island also offers the chance to relax on serene Yas Beach. It’s a great place for a family day out, with white sands and gentle, lapping waves. There’s a kids’ splash pool and a large swimming pool, along with tempting food and drink options.

Nearby you’ll find an array of amazing attractions including Yas Waterworld, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and the largest indoor theme park in the world, Warner Bros. World™ Abu Dhabi.

An unforgettable experience for the whole family, it’s a great choice for a day of rides, rollercoasters and even the chance to meet Bugs Bunny, Fred Flintstone, Superman and a whole host of treasured Hanna-Barbera, Looney Tunes and DC Comics characters.

Things to know before you fly to Abu Dhabi

charities Cultural considerations

You’re sure to receive a warm welcome in Abu Dhabi but it’s a good idea to check local laws and customs before you travel. The dress code in the city is typically modest, though it’s more relaxed in hotels. Swimwear should only be worn at the beach, waterpark or around the swimming pool. Tipping is customary, though a 10 per cent service charge will often be automatically added to the bill.

bus Getting around

Taxi is the most convenient way to get around the city, although there are buses to destinations such as the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Yas Island and the Louvre Abu Dhabi.

If you’re looking to travel outside the city, you might want to rent a car. Check the requirements before travelling, as you may need an International Driving Permit.

meals Local cuisine

For a taste of traditional food in Abu Dhabi, try maqluba – a meat, vegetable and rice dish cooked in a pot and then flipped upside down for serving. As the city sits on the coast of the Arabian Gulf, seafood is a mainstay in Abu Dhabi and many restaurants serve delicious fish dishes.

accommodation Where to stay

Yas Island is a great place to stay in Abu Dhabi as it’s close to the airport and home to many of the main attractions such as Yas Marina Circuit, Yas Waterworld, and Warner Bros. World™ Abu Dhabi. If you fancy a round of golf, head to Yas Links or take on the world’s tallest indoor climbing wall at Clymb Abu Dhabi.

Flying to Abu Dhabi: FAQs

How far is Abu Dhabi airport from the city?

Transfers from Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH) to the centre of the city take around 30 minutes, and it’s just 15 minutes to Yas Island. When you book your Abu Dhabi flights online, you can arrange an airport transfer or take a bus or taxi from outside the airport.

How long can I stay in Abu Dhabi?

How long you can stay in Abu Dhabi depends on the passport you travel with. Residents of the UK, Australia, GCC nations, the United States and most European countries can usually stay for up to 30 days. To check if you need a visa and to apply for one, visit our visas page.

What should I wear in Abu Dhabi?

Whilst it can be very warm in Abu Dhabi, air conditioning keeps malls, restaurants and indoor attractions chilled, so jeans and a few layers are a good idea. It’s respectful to keep shoulders and legs covered, and men should avoid shorts when visiting religious sites. It’s fine to wear shorts, t-shirts and swimwear on the beach and by hotel pools, and don’t forget a hat to protect yourself from the sun.

Why we love Abu Dhabi

“Abu Dhabi is the home of Etihad Airways and this amazing city has something for everyone. It's the perfect place to get active in the great outdoors. Try kayaking at Eastern Mangroves, or cycling along the Corniche - you can hire bikes along the waterfront. Finish off with a stroll around Umm al Emarat park as the sun sets.”
