Kayaking in the Mangroves
Abu Dhabi may be a desert city, but along its coastline are 5,600 acres of natural mangrove forests and the best way to experience the mangroves is by kayak. Aaron and Jessica hired a guide and rented a kayak one afternoon and went out exploring. There's such a stark contrast between all the construction occuring in the City and the peaceful nature of the mangroves. It's hard to beleive that these two facets of Abu Dhabi are occuring in harmony of each other. Most of the mangrove forests are on the eastern side of Abu Dhabi Island, about a block from our villa. Our proximity to the mangrove forests and the kayak launch has us considering the purchase of our own kayaks.
