Amazing views of Abu Dhabi
The Marina Eye, Abu Dhabi’s answer to the famed London Eye was opened to the public in 2015 and has become a much-vaunted attraction for visitors and locals. A ride on the 196-foot tall Marina Eye takes about five minutes but every moment is an opportunity to enjoy unmatched views of Abu Dhabi, the sparkling blue waters on the horizon and even get a bird’s eye view of the iconic Emirates Palace.
The Marina Eye boasts 42 capsules in total including an exclusive VIP pod that comes with leather seats and a refrigerator. Each cabin is air-conditioned and encased with glass all around to allow you to enjoy uninterrupted views of the city. Yes, photographs are highly recommended.
While a ride on the Marina Eye is great any time of the day, at night it is lit up quite stunningly. That’s a sight to take in even if you don’t want to get on it.
