Mugheirah Bay and Mamsha Al Mugheirah, two integrated beachfront destinations developed by Modon Properties, were recently inaugurated by Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed, representative of the ruler of Abu Dhabi’s Al Dhafra area.
The two projects are located in Al Dhafra, adjacent to Modon’s ecotourism camp project, Bab Al Nojoum – Al Mugheirah Resort.
The 12-hectare Mugheirah Bay offers a rich retail, entertainment, leisure and lifestyle experience with 15 F&B outlets, 3 retail towers, a multi-purpose gaming and retail center and an events lawn. This vibrant new destination also features a variety of unique recreational facilities including a splash park, skate park, outdoor gym, bike trails, multi-purpose courts for basketball, soccer and volleyball, and a laser tag and paintball center.
The one-stop beachfront destination overlooks Mamsha Al Mugheirah, a boardwalk nestled among the surrounding natural mangroves, linking The Bab Al Nojoum – Al Mugheirah Resort and entertainment at Mugheirah Bay. Mamsha Al Mugheirah spans approximately 2 kilometers and offers sweeping sea views.
Mugheirah Bay and Mamsha Al Mugheirah are nestled within a breathtaking landscape, and guests can enter from the scenic marina to enjoy unparalleled views of the surrounding natural habitat. From the observation tower and education center at Mamsha Al Mugheirah, visitors can also spot the various animals that inhabit the area, such as black herons and dugongs.
Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed visited both projects, during which he was briefed on the various services and facilities for tourists developed according to the highest international standards. He also commended Modern Properties for its work in continuously developing world-class tourism destinations.
