Developed by Abu Dhabi Ports, the new Mirfa port has received some upgrades in facilities such as rock revetment to shield the port berths, and the construction of a breakwater to protect the port’s basin from the pressure of strong water currents.

Furthermore, floating pontoons have been installed to lodge in 140 fishing boats and ferries. According to the port developer, the Al Mirfa Port is a major sight having newly developed facilities as part of their comprehensive development plans.
