New public beach to become Abu Dhabi holidays' latest attraction

A new attraction to Abu Dhabi holidays is getting much media attention as new plans for public beach developments are unveiled. The beautiful seafront of Corniche that stretches from the Sheraton hotel to the Hilton hotel for over 6 km is about to be transformed with a new set of recreational and leisure outlets for the enjoyment of the whole Abu Dhabi community and the delight of those visitors staying at nearby Abu Dhabi hotels.

Through a press release on Wednesday The UPC (Abu Dhabi's Urban Planning Council) revealed the new infrastructure plans for Corniche's brand new seafront makeover. The project will be spread out as part of a three year development programme of which the first part's completion date is set to be as soon as by the end of October 2009.

Very soon Corniche's residents and holidaymakers travelling to the city for a splendid Abu Dhabi holiday will be able to come down here to enjoy an interactive beachfront retreat filled with new events, gardens and restaurants. The idea is to incorporate the cultural, environmental and aesthetic influences that shape Abu Dhabi's existing urban design framework into the development of this new beach area. General Manager of Abu Dhabi Urban planning Council, H.E Falah Al Ahbabi commented on the new project: "The Development Plan encompassed the input of all stakeholders to establish the Abu Dhabi Corniche as a leading entertainment destination and a first choice for residents and visitors to our city all year round,". This will put Corniche in a prime position for the opening of new Abu Dhabi hotels and resorts and the creation of many new Abu Dhabi holiday packages. The project will allow locals, visitors and holidaymakers to contribute in the development of the city and the overall which will in turn also help shape up the vision of the plan Abu Dhabi 2030.

For the delight of many investors that may now be looking to invest in the construction of new Abu Dhabi hotels around the area, the development plan will enhance shading, lighting, pedestrian flow for pleasant promenades by the seafront and easy access points into the site. An ideal location for the flourishing of new tourist attractions and the opening of new boutique Abu Dhabi hotels, this new plan will ensure that all functional requirements, utilities, services, road junctions and public transport are set to world's best standards.

Visitors coming to enjoy the best of what an Abu Dhabi holiday has on offer may get more than expected with this new development that promises to provide comprehensive recreation and leisure facilities for the entire community. New constructions around the Corniche area aim to create a sense of place and warmth by providing a youth and family oriented experience with a wide beach walk and facilities for cycling and sports such as volleyball, football and skateboarding as well as environmental activities and promotions. This is soon due to become the one place for shopping, mingling, sightseeing, dining, sun tanning and of course...swimming! With all the hype surrounding this new project Abu Dhabi holidays are sure to be put firmly on the map for great Middle East getaways.
