The Al Maqtaa Fort is a 200 year old Fort that is located on an independent body of land surrounded by water. Placed near the famous Al Maqtaa Bridge, the fort originally served as a watch tower against the invading bandits. Today it is recognized as a symbol of Abu Dhabi history and is visited by many tourists and locals for its architecture and value. This attraction could be easily accessed from any one of the major Abu Dhabi Hotels. The Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort by Anantara is a particularly good choice when it comes to selecting an Abu Dhabi Hotel.
