One of the nature lovers
It’s all about the sea life at Saadiyat Beach. This is why to access the pristine white sands stretching out along a generous shore you’ll skip along a wooden boardwalk so you don’t disturb the native wildlife, including the critically endangered Hawksbill turtles that use the beach as their nesting ground.
