Free abra rides in Abu Dhabi

Everyone agrees that Sheikh Zayed grand Mosque is one of the UAE’s most striking architectural feats and photographers have taken thousands upon thousands of pictures showing it off to every advantage. From the water, however, this magnificent structure is at its most beautiful. Now, this vista is open to anyone who wants to see it with a new service offering free abra trips along Abu Dhabi Grand Canal.

The 20-minute journey along the Khor Al Maqtaa takes in some of the capital’s most impressive waterside hotels, including Fairmont Bab Al Bahr, the Ritz-Carlton Grand Canal, the Shangri-La and also Souk Qaryat Al Beri. Ideal for showing off the best of the city when visitors are in town or simply whiling away a lazy late afternoon on the water, this is a perfect opportunity to gain a new perspective of the city and explore its treasures afresh.

The traditional wooden Abras leave from the Souk Qaryat Al Beri with a stop at the Shangri-La Hotel, the Ritz Carlton and the Fairmont Bab Al Bahr.

This service is operating every day, from 6pm to midnight.
