Miral has revealed that Yas Bay Waterfront, Abu Dhabi’s mixed-use waterfront destination, is opening to guests on Yas Island on December 1, 2021. Miral is responsible for the development and management of Yas Island.

Yas Bay Waterfront is home to the Pier71 boardwalk, as well as 12 world-class dining, leisure and entertainment brands. It joins existing offerings at Yas Bay, including Etihad Arena, an indoor entertainment venue.

“This new development supports our vision for Yas Island to become a global destination for entertainment, leisure and business, as well as an attractive location for partnerships and investment opportunities,” said Gurjit Singh, chief portfolio officer at Miral.

“We are looking forward to welcoming residents and visitors to Yas Bay Waterfront to enjoy the exceptional experiences and distinctive international concepts on offer,” Singh added.

To celebrate the opening of Yas Bay Waterfront, Miral is hosting various events throughout December, including parades, performances, fireworks and DJ nights.

Yas Bay Waterfront offers spectacular views of the Arabian Gulf, and features a series of bespoke artworks created by international artists such as Beastman (Brad Eastman), Fatspatrol and MonkeyBird.

The development is part of Miral’s AED 4 billion investment in the AED 12 billion master plan for Yas Bay. The waterfront is one of three areas at Yas Bay. It joins the Residences at Yas Bay and Yas Creative Hub.

Once complete, Yas Bay is expected to house 15,000 residents and more than 10,000 business professionals. Yas Bay Waterfront is close to Yas Island’s attractions, including Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Yas Waterworld, Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi and CLYMB.

Miral and Warner Bros. recently opened the world’s first Warner Bros. hotel on Yas Island. The WB Abu Dhabi boasts a vast collection of Warner Bros. archives, including more than 400 images and props.

Speaking at this year’s blooloop V-Expo, Miral CEO Mohamed Abdalla Al Zaabi opened up about making Yas Island a contactless destination, and confirmed that SeaWorld Abu Dhabi is on track to complete in 2022.
