Things to do in Abu Dhabi in August

Abu Dhabi Beaches

August is hot and muggy in Abu Dhabi, and the only way to attempt to beat the heat outdoors is at Abu Dhabi's many beaches.  Abu Dhabi's beaches are more than just beaches, they're also social centers, outdoor gyms, and lounges.  Some of Abu Dhabi's beaches are public while hotels own others.  It's still possible for non-hotel guests to visit these beaches by paying a fee.  Some of the more popular beaches are Corniche Beach and Abu Dhabi Beach, both along the Corniche waterfront.  Yas Beach is a hot spot in Abu Dhabi's new entertainment district and admission is free for Yas Island hotel guests.  Saadiyat Beach is a pristine, white sand beach protected from development, and parts of it can be reserved for private events.

Jet Ski Abu Dhabi Waterfront

Sometimes just sitting at the beach or wading in the water won't cool you off enough, and you need some speed going through the water.  Abu Dhabi has a number of jet ski rental outfits; some offer guides and others will let you just take the jet skis out on your own to play.  One of the more popular places to ride a jet ski in Abu Dhabi is along the Corniche waterfront, where they hold regular jet ski races and world championships.  Jet skiing is also popular at Yas Island and Saadiyat Island.

Sand Boarding in the Desert

Can you ski in Abu Dhabi?  Not on snow, but there are plenty of sand dunes where you can try this sport.  The Liwa dunes are some of the tallest in the world at over 300m tall and offer an exhilarating experience.  If that's too tall for you there are a number of smaller dunes to practice on.  Just remember that you'll be out in the hot, dry desert, and being out in the afternoon can be dangerous.  So you're best saving this activity for an early morning.  Dress in light clothing and bring plenty of water.  Tour operators will be able to assist you.

Khalifa Park

If the children are complaining of the heat you should consider taking them to Khalifa Park in the late afternoon & evening.  Khalifa Park is home to an interesting Maritime Museum where you can learn about the marine history of Abu Dhabi, learn about ancient fishing, and see a small aquarium.  One end of the park features the Murjan Splash Park, a fun area of water attractions for children, containing slides, water guns, and bumper boats.  Khalifa Park does allow grilling if you'd like to bring your own food.  Once the sun goes down you'll be treated to beautiful views of the Sheikh Zayed Bridge, one of the most beautiful night attractions in all of Abu Dhabi.
