Abu Dhabi has so much to offer during the winter months. This post will give you the low-down on our favourite activities to do over the next few months.
- Music Monkeys
We love Music Monkey classes. Each term is themed and my eldest has been attending classes since she was 6 months old. Whether you sign up for a term or you attend one of their many drop-in classes, your child will be engaged, given the opportunity to socialise and are sure to have a good time. You’ll also add a song or two to your repertoire.

- Yas Waterworld
Yas Waterworld is quite possible my favourite treat day out with my children. I bought the annual pass for my husband and I and our kids are young enough to go free (free for children 3 years old and younger). None of my children are tall enough for any of the ‘rides’ but fret not, Yas Waterworld has plenty for the littler ones to enjoy. There is a plethora of water playgrounds for the children to immerse themselves in, a wave pool with a wonderful shallow end and two lazy rivers for you to experience. Tickets are AED 250 for adults and AED 210 for children under 1.1m tall.
- Saadiyat Public Beach
Described as a sprawling white-sand beach with eco-friendly water sports, changing facilities & chair rentals, you will not be disappointed with a day at Saadiyat’s Public Beach.
Tickets are AED 25 for adults and free for children under the age of six.
- Emirates Park Zoo and Resort
This wonderful private zoo is home to more than 1,400 animals made up of farm animals, pets and wild animals. Excite your children by exploring the bird park, reptile house, snake alley, giraffe park, Petting Zoo and more.
Entrance to the park is free for under 2s, AED 30 for 3-16 years, AED 35 for adult tickets. You need to buy some activity passes and some encounters and presentations have an extra charge.
- Bounce – Bike ride along the Corniche – lunch at Marls Organic Café
This is the day out I planned for my eldest to enjoy with her Daddy when she turned three! It’s perfect for any three-year old who doesn’t nap and doesn’t stop! A morning trip to Bounce at Marina Mall followed by her learning to ride her bike along the Corniche and finishing it off with an organic lunch at Marls Organic Café. It’s AED 75 per ticket for the children at Bounce, we take our own bike for the children but can rent one for adults from Cyacle (best to pre-register).
We’d love to hear what your favourite days out are in Abu Dhabi and how much do they set you back as a family?
