Saadiyat island has some of the cleanest sea I have experienced in the UAE. The beach where we typically stay is protected because turtles lay their eggs there. On this visit we saw a group of dolphins swim across the sea right in front of us. They were in no hurry and it was great to watch them play.

Later that day, a flock of flamingos flew over my son's head as he made sand castles with his friends. And the occasional butterflies on the beach were a nice touch.
