ABU DHABI — Shaikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Presidential Affairs, yesterday inaugurated the new Abu Dhabi corniche beach. Also, a new world record was created when Shaikh Mansour cut the longest-ever inaugural ribbon.

Ministers, diplomatic representatives to the UAE, and senior officials of the Department of Municipal Affairs and Abu Dhabi Municipality were among those present at the ceremony.

After cutting the ribbon, Shaikh Mansour toured the premises and facilities of the beach. "The newly-opened beach reflects the UAE leadership's keenness to ensure comfort to people and enhance public services and utilities for all residents," said Juma Mubarak Al Janeibi, Director General of Abu Dhabi Municipality.

The beach has a host of facilities for visitors, including four playgrounds for beach volleyball as well, Al Janeibi added.

As many as 555 palm trees have been planted in the parks extending along the beach.

Also, there are seven monitoring centres for swift rescue in case of emergencies.
