Dubai 1st time

Looking to book a 2 week stay Abu dhabi so looking for any tips/advice as this will be our 1st time.

We like to be within walking distance to a beach so help on the best areas would be gratefully appreciated and also accommodation basis and cost of eating out.

    Your heading states "Dubai 1st time" but you are looking to stay in Abu Dhabi which is approximately 80 miles/130 kilometres from Dubai. Dubai and Abu Dhabi are completely places. So where do you want to go?

    The UAE is made up of 7 emirates(principalities) Dubai is an Emirate and Abu Dhabi is another both are ruled by different governments.
  • we want to visit both places
