Blue Marlin Ibiza UAE
This place is a lifestyle. Located in an oasis like space in Al Ghantoot, this is where to go to get away from it all. Comprising several levels, including an open air restaurant on the first floor, a terrace and DJ stage on the ground level and the beach on the lowest level, it’s where like-minded partygoers go to have a good time.
Get out there early to avoid any disappointment. The hot spot reaches capacity pretty early, so unless you’re a member you’ll need to beat the crowds by arriving first to guarantee a table or beach bed.
Grab a bite to eat. The Mediterranean and Japanese influenced menu has an extensive list of sushi platters, beef tartare, octopus carpaccio, black cod, red mullet, roasted seabream, seabass ceviche, kaiso salad and chicken quesadillas.
Live like a VIP. If you’ve got wads of cash to spare, there is a special cordoned-off area and private cabanas and you can arrive via helicopter or yacht.
It’s a trek, but completely worth the journey. Situated about 45 minutes from Abu Dhabi, it’s a long drive, but if you plan on staying the whole day it’s an experience at the weekend that will have you super-charged for work on Sunday.
