Plans to develop Jubail Island, located between Saadiyat Island and Yas Island, have taken a step forward.

The island, which is already home to the Jubail Mangrove Walk which opened in January this year, has awarded an infrastructure works contract to Gulf Contractors Company, GCC.

A Dhs200m deal will see the infrastructure created for the Dhs5bn development that will feature residential areas including a mix of high-end and mid-range properties, as well as retail and food and beverage outlets.

In addition, a number of outdoor areas are set to be opened including public parks, walking tracks, kayaking stations, cycling routes and water sports.

We can’t wait to see it when it’s done and walk, cycle, run and kayak our way around the area.

Can’t wait? Here’s everything you need to know about Jubail Mangrove Park.

Plus, soon you’ll be able to spend the night with new glamping pods set to open to the public.
