Abu Dhabi islands one of the most exclusive islands in the Middle East, with a magical atmosphere. Combine it with the breathtaking Abu Dhabi Coast for the complete charter experience. Beautiful islands, rich classical heritage, and excellent resorts.

“Come here if you like swimming in sparkling waters, strolling around romantic beaches, eating incredible food, and soaking up the stunning scenery.”

My highlights would include a private visit to Nurai Island with a seafood restaurant and a great spa. For the fine dining Emirates Palace, the most exclusive hotel in Abu Dhabi has a selection of restaurants including Mezlai an Emirati Restaurant. My favorite anchorage is on Bahrani – one of the most beautiful natural islands in the entire Abu Dhabi. With over 200 islands there’s a deserted beach out there for you! Have fun snorkeling in warm waters where the results of your underwater photography are always great. Why not try a deep-sea fishing experience? Fishing was one of the main livelihoods of the Emirates and a major part of their culture. See how to use the hooks and lines, then take your catch back to the yacht for your chef to prepare!

“Abu Dhabi is my idea of paradise, with a sunny climate, deserted beaches, truly clear waters, and wonderfully friendly people.”

Plan your yacht charter for early or late summer, if possible. Embark and disembark in Abu Dhabi. Allow a week to explore, but we can also organize longer charters to include the magical Dubai, You would need a couple of weeks or more for this, but it’s highly recommended if you have the time.
