Hike for March

Naturally the hike for this month is one that can be done with young children. It is on the east coast near Kalba and can be combined with some time on the boats in the lagoon or the rental bikes. You get to walk along the beautiful Corniche amongst the local Emirati families who spend a lot of time here enjoying the mangroves.
