The newly renovated beaches by the Ministry of Municipality and Environment have received huge crowds of visitors- families and individuals during Eid Al Fitr holidays and weekends.

The visitors enjoyed the perfectly calm sea in the morning hours and during nights. The visitors lauded the Ministry of Municipality and Environment for providing all necessary facilities at beaches.

“I took my family to Sealine Beach at Umm Saead on Wednesday in early morning,” Abdullah Abu Reem, a Moroccan expatriate told The Peninsula. He said that the sea was calm and water was suitable for taking bath and swimming. “My children enjoyed the trip too much. They swam for hours long enjoying favorable weather and sea water,” said Abu Reem.

He said that children also played in sands at Sealine Beach which is cleaned of stones. Aburraham Orakzai, a Pakistani national praised the efforts of the Ministry of Municipality and Environment for providing necessary facilities at Sealine Beach like separate toilets and maintaining hygiene.

“Cleaning workers equipped with necessary gears are deployed at the beach to keep the surrounding clean,” said Orakzai adding that garbage bins in enough quantity were placed along the beach to stop littering around.

Ministry of Municipality and Environment, represented by the Public Parks Department has planted various palm trees and made shades along the beaches to provide shade and greenery to the visitors. “I took breakfast with my family at a shade at Al Wakra beach,” said Ahmad.

The Ministry of Municipality and Environment has opened five major beaches and Corniche after renovation which are now equipped with new facilities including pergolas (shades), cafeterias, toilets and green areas among many others to serve the visitors.
