What better way to enjoy a luxurious cruise in Abu Dhabi than stopping over at an enchanting island hideaway! That’s exactly what Sir Bani Yas Island is and here are some of its main allures.
Beach and Water Sports
The sun-drenched sands bordered by azure waters offer the perfect coastal escape which is a true highlight to be enjoyed when staying at a beachside resort in Abu Dhabi. You can indulge in such pleasures and even look to try water sports such as snorkelling, stand-up paddleboarding and kayaking.
Arabian Wildlife Park
This free-roaming sanctuary for animals is well worth a visit and can be explored by way of wildlife drives offered by island properties such as Anantara Sir Bani Yas Island Al Yamm Villa Resort. The chance to spot cheetahs is particularly thrilling as are encounters with sand gazelles, giraffes, Arabian oryxes and blackbuck antelopes.
A rewarding activity, horse riding at Sir Bani Yas Island gives you the chance to have adventures atop Arabian stallions or mares. While riding on dunes are ideal for novices, experienced riders can look to traverse parts of the wildlife park and enjoy animal sightings as well.
Those interested in history have much to look forward to as well. The island is home to more than 40 archaeological sites each offering diverse insights into a rich heritage. Amongst the key attractions is a Nestorian Christian monastery that dates all the way back to 600 A.D!
