This manmade island is unlike anything else in the world – from fast-paced Ferrari World, to the relaxing ebb and flow of the tide on Yas Beach, there’s a spot for everyone.
Fans of Formula One won’t want to miss out on the chance to visit Ferrari World, and its 240 kph rollercoaster – or the Yas Marina Circuit. The 5.5 km long circuit is the only motorsports venue in the world to offer visitors a shaded grandstand and somewhere to escape from the sun: perfect for when you’re watching the racing in Abu Dhabi’s scorching sunny weather.
If you’re after something more sedate, try Yas Links, the 24th best golf course outside of the USA. The award-winning course offers 18 holes of beautiful greens and stunning views – with a guarantee of good weather!
Yas Island is also home to the second best waterpark in the world – Yas Waterpark. Home to the world’s largest surf-able sheet wave, as well as rides and relaxation pools, Yas Waterpark has something for kids of all ages – and adults too!
With five-star hotels, gourmet restaurants and a breath-taking beach, Yas Island is perfect for a day trip out of the city, or an extended break. Easily accessible from the city, the island can easily be visited in a day thanks to the Yas Express, a non-stop train.
