The vibrant Bani Yas Island, located just off the coast of Abu Dhabi, is a man-made natural and cultural playground offering a unique range of thrills to all who visit the intriguing isle. Some of the most exquisite luxury resorts Abu Dhabi has to offer its visitors are featured on Yas Island, and a choice option can be found at the Anantara Sir Bani Yas Island Al Sahel Villas which offers a stunning range of Abu Dhabi villas from which to soak in the exotic desert island scape. In addition to the magnificent array of wildlife that can be observed and marveled at on the isle, it is home to the Yas Marina Circuit, which is the second Formula One racing track in the Middle East, with the first installed in Bahrain. Paving the way for the future of Formula One racing in the country, it was opened in 2009, a week before the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix of that year. In February 2010, it hosted the Yas V8 400, which is the Australian V8 Supercars series. The famous track features 21 exciting corners and drivers whiz by locations such as the marina and several hotels before racing through sand dunes. For those wanting a little more excitement beyond what can be witnessed on the track, Yas Island also features a theme park and water park as well.
