The Saadiyat island lies northeast of Abu Dhabi and is connected by an 800 metres long bridge to the city. The island as a shape of an isosceles triangle, with sides of 10km. The island is quite flat and mostly sandy. Currently the island is being developed as a cultural and tourist centre. Art museums are being built at its western end (Guggenheim, Louvre), while the northern coast is being developed as a beach area for tourists. Currently there is a nice long white sand public beach (25 AED/person entry) near a Hyatt hotel under construction. The plan is to add a yacht harbour and residential villas.
