Top 5 Places to Watch the Sunset
February is by far the most romantic month of the year. Forget dinner and movie! Impress your special someone with dinner and a beautiful sunset. Heck! Take them anytime, not just in February! Love is in the air all year round!
Eclipse Terrace Lounge
Nestled on the third floor of the Four Seasons is Eclipse. Yes, this is part pool bar, part lounge, but it’s a place you will want to stay after peak pool hours. They are serving up amazing cocktails, great snacks and an incredible uninterrupted view of downtown Abu Dhabi. So sit back, relax and watch the sun set over the skyline.

Nasma Beachfront Bar
One of the coolest bars to open in 2018, Nasma truly transports you to a tropical paradise making it feel like you’re on vacation every day! Arrive just before sunset to grab one of their extra large swing chairs or cuddle up in their comfy lounge area. Sip on a passionfruit mojito and watch the sky turn to shades of orange over Saadiyat beach. Saadiyat Rotana, 02 697 0000
Less then a year ago, Abu Dhabi welcomed Al Bahar, an 80,000 square meter beachfront community. With over 20 food outlets and growing, you can find everything from fish tacos to pizza and churros. Take your bites to the beach or take a stroll and soak it in as the sun descends behind Emirates Palace.

Abdel Al Wahab
What can be more romantic then watching the sunset over the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque? Probably not much comes to mind. Throw in excellent Lebanese food, the desserts are to die for, and you are sure to impress. Make a reservation or get there early to secure a table outside with the best views.The shisha is fantastic too!

Mare Mare is getting quite the buzz as the go-to place for lunch but it’s also a perfect spot for dinner. Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island has been built right on beach, a lot closer then some other hotels in the area making this truly a waterfront beach view. Mare after all is the Italian word for ‘sea’. Enjoy the colors of the sunset as it reflects over the ocean waves.
