Next to Abu Dhabi’s fish market and across from the Corniche, the Dhow Harbor is one of the oldest parts of Abu Dhabi and continues the fish trading tradition of earlier times.
This is the starting spot for many local cruises and sea-tours of Abu Dhabi, as well as the home of little, one-story restaurants that offer a variety of seafood specialties. The entire Abu Dhabi skyline can be seen behind the boats like a row of giants lurking behind the rocking, wooden dhows that hint at past times.
The Dhow Harbour is situated next to Port Mina’s fish market, at the opposite end of the Corniche. When giving directions to a taxi-driver, mention that it’s off of 31st St.
