We’re now in phase three of the Abu Dhabi DMT parks and beach reopening plan…

Abu Dhabi’s Department of Municipalities and Transport (DMT) is currently deep into the third of phase public beach and park reopening in the emirate.

Facilities and public touchpoints have been given a thorough clean and will continue to receive periodical sterilisations.

Of course private beaches such as the ones in hotels or like the new hot spot on Saadiyat, Soul Beach have also been permitted to open, pending successful compliance with strict health and safety measures.

Public park and beach capacities are currently limited to 40 per cent; masks and gloves must be worn (unless in the water); temperature checks will be carried out before entering the space; group sizes have been set to a maximum of four people; with a minimum space between groups of 2 metres.
