Eastern Mangroves Promenade, Abu Dhabi Overview

The Eastern Mangroves Promenade is a retail and lifestyle hub, located within the Eastern Mangroves Complex on Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Street in Abu Dhabi. The promenade boasts a number of restaurants, health and beauty service outlets, a supermarket, residential locations and several leisure outlets.

With its favourable location in the Abu Dhabi city, the promenade stretches along the city’s protected eastern mangrove district for 1.2 kilometres. The Eastern Mangrove District, about 4.5 square kilometres long, is a unique ecosystem consisting of grey mangroves, along with salt-water plants known as halophytes. These mangroves are the only kind that can survive in the climate conditions unique to the country, and protect coastal areas from erosion. They also provide a place for migratory birds to live and certain fish to breed.
