While Abu Dhabi may be a lively city that rarely stands still, it does indeed have a much calmer and slower side ripe for relaxing — one filled with lush greenery, turquoise waters, and toes perpetually stuck in the sand. You'll feel the warmth radiate from the Arabian sun as you leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind, trading it for cool breezes, the sound of waves lapping on the shore, and long and lazy swims in the turquoise waters. How would you choose to relax in Abu Dhabi?
