The project will further enhance the capital’s pristine coastline and beachfront facilities for the benefit of residents and visitors of Abu Dhabi.

The beach club will be located at one of the most desirable beach locations in the city, the Lagoons Beach near West Plaza, forming part of the city’s Phase Two Corniche expansions.

The proposed beach club will upgrade the existing community service facilities by offering an array of middle to high-end food and beverage joints that will be open to the public.

The beach club will offer a selection of new amenities for both the public and beach club members and also offer an opportunity for city centre hotels without beach access to offer guests a membership.

Members will have access to the beach and a range of activities including outdoor pools, health club, decking area, relaxation zone, water sports facilities and a children’s play area. There will also be ample parking space and underpass pedestrian access from the Corniche.

Rashed bin Ali Al Omaira, advisor investments and assets for the general manager’s office at the municipality, said: “The project is designed to increase the range of quality public services and amenities available to both residents and visitors.” Many of Abu Dhabi’s four and five star hotels have no private beach facilities, so the beach club will also present an opportunity for the hotels to cater to their guests through the club’s membership.
