Staycation edit: the best sea views in the UAE

This year, for a lot of GCC residents it is going to be staycation only. This being said, the region is home to wonderful scenery, hotels and food options, so it is not necessarily the worst-case scenario. Options are endless and criteria will depend on everyone’s budget, families, friends etc. However, one thing that I think most people can’t deny, is that sea views are just the best. This feeling of relaxation when looking at the sea is truly unique. If you are looking for a staycation in the UAE and want a sea view, check out the below gems just a few km away from you.
