Water Sports

The UAE provides ideal conditions for all water sports for most of the year; lagoons, creeks and harbors for wind-surfing with designated areas for water skiing and jet skiing, mangroves for kayaking and canoeing, the East Coast for snorkeling and diving plus the Arabian Gulf coastal shores for sailing.  The sea is generally safe and unpolluted, perfect for swimming and snorkeling.

Many of the beach clubs offer water sports facilities including hire of equipment.

Pool facilities are widespread. Most hotels, schools and clubs have their own pool and offer swimming lessons or provide access to such facilities.
