Hudayriyat Mar Vista – Walk of Life

    Hudayriyat Island was once home to Arabian pearl divers. Now, it’s a remarkable new community and lifestyle destination.

    By combining a sensitive coastal heritage walk, a beach-front glamping site, sports complex and lively restaurant zone, Hudayriyat brings many aspects of landscape interpretation and education to a new generation in an accessible, engaging, immersive and innovative way.


    The ‘Walk of Life’ heritage trail protects important archaeological remains. Shell middens show evidence of pearl fishermen, and dugong & shark remains demonstrate the importance of marine resources in the past. Shaded interpretation nodes and sensitively placed boardwalks provide access to this fascinating history.
