Rainy days make me feel blue. So I’m having a look at the photos I took during our cruise in the United Arab Emirates onboard Costa Toscana. And I’d like to share our Costa Excursion in Abu Dhabi entitled “Al Maya, a day of relaxation”.
This excursion is around seven hours long and it gives you the opportunity to enjoy the luxury of a beautiful resort, a sandy beach, a translucent sea with turquoise water and a blue sky.
First of all, the excursion starts with a bus ride from the terminal to the mole. There you’ll get on a small boat sailing to Al Maya Island. The motor boat may accommodate up to 10 persons. It takes 10 to 15 minutes to sail to the island.
While sailing, have a look at the breathtaking skyscrapers getting smaller and smaller. You can also catch sight of the Presidential Palace Qsar Al Watan.
The resort was established in 2005 and it is composed of sandy beaches, a pool, a restaurant and a bar in the one hand and a hotel and luxurious villas on the other hand.
If you book the excursion, you’ll have access to the pool, the beaches and sun beds. Credit cards are accepted if you fancy a drink or a snack.
In Abu Dhabi there are about 200 natural islands. Most of them can be visited by tourists. You must take a boat to visit Al Maya. Originally Al Maya was only a small inhabited island. But it has been turned into a luxurious hotel resort and even gazelles have been imported !
Al Maya is the perfect place to live a waking dream in which you feel like being a prince 🙂
Sun cream, swimsuit and sun hat are compulsory to spend the best day ever !
After having a bath and drink, go and meet the gazelles ! They’re very easy to find. In fact they like the green grass growing around the hotel and villas nearby.
In brief, this excursion pleases not only families but also the people who are looking for change of scene and relaxation.
To put it in a nutshell, booking this excursion will bring you vitamin D and relaxation. And I think we all need that a lot, don’t we ?
So are you ready to visit Al Maya Island ?
Abu Dhabi is a bustling city. Indeed there are so manu places to visit, such as the mosque for example. However your cruise may also be the opportunity to spend a day on an idyllic island.
To conclude my post, have a wonderful day
