Everybody loves a day out at the beach during the sun-baked UAE winter - including a pod of dolphins it seems.

Visitors to Saadiyat Beach Club were greeted by the splendid sight of some playful marine creatures enjoying a swim in the azure waters surrounding the popular leisure spot.

The special visit even made waves on social media when the beach club posted the fun footage to its Instagram account on Friday, along with the words 'guess who's back'.

It might not be in reference to a Eminem song lyric - even though the chart-topping icon will be performing live in Abu Dhabi in just one week's time - as dolphins are no strangers to UAE shores.

In January of last year, a pod of dolphins made a splash near the same club, receiving a warm welcome from beach-goers.
