Take a look!

To the desert




Winston Cowie works for the Environment Agency – Abu Dhabi and has an incredible Insta account filled with his ventures across Abu Dhabi and the UAE wide.

Let there be light




City centre Abu Dhabi is at it’s most urbane by night when the lights reflect the streets and tower blocks in all their glory.

Walking the promenade




There’s nothing better than a stroll along the Corniche. The temperature is climbing these days but there’s still time.

Count your blessings




We are simply blessed to have this architectural marvel in our emirate and no photo roll of Abu Dhabi would be complete without it!

Get pedalling




Abu Dhabi is certainly an active city and recently the municipality inaugurated many miles of new cycling tracks citywide.

Under the sea




Below the waves is all manner of life and the Environmental Agency – Abu Dhabi are doing everything possible to ensure the waters are safe for sea life as it is for us!

Island life




Abu Dhabi is made up of 100s of islands and Saadiyat Island is just one of them, which is worth a visit to discover where art and nature merge.
