Al Zorah Nature Reserve is a vibrant ecosystem made up of mangroves, turquoise lagoons and sandy beaches, which is home to nearly 60 species of bird including pink flamingo, egret and heron.
Al Zorah Nature Reserve is located to the north of the city and linked directly to Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road. It is part of the Al Zorah community, a new development set along 12 kilometres of waterfront and 1.6 kilometres of sandy beaches that boasts an 18-hole Championship golf course.
With seven kilometres of waterfront, two kilometres of beach and a tidal creek, the nature reserve is made for waterborne activities. The best way to explore the mangroves is by kayak, and the calm waters and network of channels make it suitable even for novice paddlers. Golfers, meanwhile, can tee off at the 18-hole Championship golf course at the nearby Al Zorah Golf Club.
