A&E Guide To…Celebrating UAE National Day

Diana Bell-Heather   |   25 - 11 - 2017

To celebrate 46th UAE National Day, we have put together a handy guide of what to do over the three-day weekend.


By The Sea

Pack a picnic and head down to Kite Beach for a day in the sun. The weather is at it’s prime and you can admire the annual display of flags on the sand.

Sweet Treat

Give your taste buds something to celebrate with Coya’s special dessert. Dig your spoon into the chocolate marquise with a dark muscovado centred surrounded by maracuja snow – designed to look like the UAE flag. Available exclusively at both Coya Dubai and Coya Abu Dhabi.

Think Fast

Need for speed? Mark December 1 in your diary to see the supercar procession in City Walk, including 50 green, red, white and black Lamborghinis, which from above will make a huge UAE flag.

Light Up The Sky

For the fireworks display that rivals New Years Eve, get a spot on JBR beach on December 2 that will start at 8.30pm. For dinner with a view, we love the terrace at Marina Social based at the Intercontinental Hotel.
