Al Maya Island is a small yet beautiful island just off the coast of Abu Dhabi. Surrounded by white sands, blue green waters, this place is perfect for a getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life.
The jetty took us to the island from Abu Dhabi for about 15 minutes. Even the cruise to the island itself is already an attraction.
It was not much crowded when we arrived. The pool was so inviting that we immediately soaked into the waters after changing our outfits. Food and drinks could be ordered from the swimming pool, and there was a live DJ for the music mix. Pool party it was!
We also did a leisurely walk along the beach shore and enjoyed the summer breeze, and the feel of sand and water touching our toes were so relaxing.
We returned back to the city before the sun sets and we really had the most amazing weekend desert island experience.
Note: Photos were taken last 28th Oct 2011. It was my mom’s first time to travel to UAE and was able to join us. She also had so much fun as much as we did.
During that time, there was an entrance fee of Dhs 100 for male visitors, female guests have free passes. For today, both male and female will have to pay the entrance fee of Dhs 100.00
