New abra service in Abu Dhabi
A new water taxi service using a traditional wooden abra has been launched to connect two of Abu Dhabi’s prime waterfront tourist destinations.
Passengers can now travel aboard the vessel for a trip between the Eastern Mangroves Promenade and The Souk at Qaryat AlBeri, with stops on the way at five-star hotels at Khor Al Maqtaa (Maqta Creek).
Operating just on weekends to begin with, the 25-minute journey will run one return trip every hour, starting from the Souk Qaryat Al Beri Marina and arriving at Eastern Mangroves Marina with stops at the Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi Grand Canal and Fairmont Bab Al Bahr hotels.
