The 200 year old Al Maqtaa Fort provides a wonderful contrast to the modern bridge next to it
Your first glimpse of this 200 year old fort will be as you approach Al Maqtaa Bridge towards Abu Dhabi Island. Standing on the edge of the island, the fort was built to fend off bandits and provides a wonderful contrast to the modern bridge next to it.
Be careful when taking photographs here, as it is a sensitive military zone.
