You have named three very different areas. The Middle East is quite varied in terms of cultures and security
. In the UAE, there are many nice marinas
in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharja, with more being built at an astonishing pace. In Abu Dhabi, the marinas at Marina Mall and the Intercontinental Hotel
are fine. Your challenge may lie in finding a slip, as this is not a customary cruising area for transient foreign sailors and the marinas are quite full. You are also competing for space with wealthy and well-connected locals.
