The beaches on Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi recently reopened after being closed for a few days due to a minor oil spill, as reported in Gulf News.
“All access to the beaches on Saadiyat Island and its surrounding waters has been restored,” reported the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority (ADTCA). “Saadiyat Beach water access was closed as a matter of public safety while reports of oil spills onto our beaches were investigated,” the authority said without elaborating on the investigation results or remedial steps taken to deal with the oil spill.”
Many visitors started coming and swimming in the waters, said the staff at Saadiyat Public Beach.
“It is nice that the beach was reopened at the beginning of the weekend. The public beach receives most of the visitors on Friday and Saturday-around 1,000 people a day,” said an anonymous staff. “We receive 100 to 400 visitors on working days,” they said.
