Yes to (Bani) Yas!

One of our must-do’s was a trip to Sir Bani Yas Island for a stay at the Desert Islands resort. A 15-minute ride off shore about 2 hours west of Abu Dhabi, the island is home to a wildlife reserve, an old Christian monestary and beautiful coastline.

Sheikh Zayed, founder and first president of the UAE, made it a priority to preserve, protect and build up the island as a nature reserve. It was beautiful; a few of our highlights are below.

Sir Bani Yas Island is about 2 hours southwest of Abu Dhabi...3 hours from Dubai...
The "Desert Islands" are made up of 8 different islands - Sir Bani Yas being the largest
