Jubail Mangrove Park

See All

Escape the city's hustle and explore a haven for avian and marine species native to Abu Dhabi at the serene Jubail Mangrove Park. Along the sprawling boardwalks that meander through the mangroves, you can catch glimpses of the park's inhabitants like turtles, herons and gazelles. Even though the city of Abu Dhabi is just 30 minutes away, you'll feel like you're in a whole new world. The landscape on Jubail Island is dramatic, especially in the park, where the lush Abu Dhabi mangrove forests separate the sea and shore. Birdwatchers, nature lovers and photographers will be in their element here.

This one-of-a-kind, family-friendly park aims to enhance awareness, appreciation and understanding of the important ecological function of the city’s mangrove habitats, which not only support biodiversity and protect the Abu Dhabi coastline but also help prevent climate change by sucking up carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases and trapping them in their flooded soils for millennia. The stunning Jubail Mangrove Park is the first self-contained educational, nature and leisure destination of its kind in the emirate.
