Spending recreation time on the beach in the Capital has been improved with the support of Hyder Consulting, the award winning international advisory and design consultancy, who has implemented the design and supervised the redevelopment of the Abu Dhabi Beach.
The new Abu Dhabi Beach was officially opened on Wednesday 2nd of July, with its new look of graceful palm trees, updated recreational facilities and plush landscaping.

It is a great asset and has now been embellished with the development of this striking new beach. We are pleased to have been part of one of the biggest recent projects in Abu Dhabi."
"Our focus was on developing the Abu Dhabi Beach to ensure that it was equipped with the best facilities while still being appealing to the residents and tourists alike.
