All about Jubail Mangrove Park

Jubail Mangrove Park is a natural oasis in the heart of Abu Dhabi. Here you can take a leisurely stroll along the boardwalks that have been built through the mangroves to experience the unspoiled landscapes of the UAE. 

The promenades are surrounded by both the flora and fauna of the region. As you venture further afield, look out for the different marine and bird species in their natural habitat – this wildlife spotting is one of the things that makes Jubail Mangrove Park the perfect family-friendly attraction.

The park sits at the northern tip of Al Jubail Island, east of Saadiyat Island, an exquisitely photogenic area that feels a world away from the soaring buildings of Abu Dhabi’s centre. Explore more and book your tickets for Jubail Mangrove Park today.
