UAE’s Al Dhafra region has welcomed Mugheirah Bay and Mamsha Al Mugheirah, two integrated waterfront destinations developed by Modon Properties.

The two projects, inaugurated by H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Ruler’s Representative in Al Dhafra Region, are adjacent to Modon’s eco-tourism campsite project, Bab Al Nojoum – Al Mugheirah Resort. Offering a rich selection of retail, entertainment, leisure and lifestyle experiences, the 12-hectare Mugheirah Bay houses 15 F&B outlets, 3 retail buildings, a multipurpose gaming and retail center, and an events lawn.

The new vibrant destination also features a diverse range of unique recreational facilities including a splash park, skate park, outdoor gym, cycling track, multi-purpose courts for basketball, football and volleyball, as well as laser tag and paintball center. The one-stop waterfront destination overlooks Mamsha Al Mugheirah, a boardwalk nestled between the surrounding natural mangroves, which connects The Bab Al Nojoum – Al Mugheirah Resort and Mugheirah Bay’s entertainment projects.

“The opening of Mugheirah Bay and Mugheirah Boardwalk enriches the tourism and economic potential of Abu Dhabi with attractive investment opportunities and a variety of compelling experiences and amenities. With the addition of such projects, the Al Dhafra region has become a prime destination for tourists and residents alike, while supporting construction and development operations. Mugheirah Bay and Mugheirah Boardwalk further reinforce Abu Dhabi’s position as an unrivaled destination for entertainment, leisure and business.”

Spanning approximately 2 kilometers, Mamsha Al Mugheirah offers uninterrupted views of the sea. Set in a breathtaking landscape, Mugheirah Bay and Mamsha Al Mugheirah offer unparalleled views of the surrounding natural habitat that guests can access from a scenic jetty. From the observation towers and educational centers located on Mamsha Al Mugheirah, visitors can also discover the variety of animals that inhabit the area such as the black heron and dugong.

With an array of flexible open spaces, Mugheirah Bay is an ideal location for the temporary leasing of food trucks and kiosks. A robust network of shaded pedestrian routes featuring art installations connects the adjacent campsite with the northern beach community.

Mr. Abdulla Al Sahi, Managing Director of Modon Properties said that “We are delighted to open Mugheirah Bay and Mugheirah Boardwalk to the public. These latest additions to our project portfolio are a testament to our commitment to developing a diverse range of attractions, enhancing Abu Dhabi’s position as the ultimate leisure and entertainment destination, in line with the vision of Abu Dhabi’s leadership to drive tourism and promote sustainable developments in the emirate.”
