Sir Bani Yas Island, with its pristine beaches and azure waters, sits off the southwestern coast of Abu Dhabi. With the distinction of being the largest natural island in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), it once served as the private retreat of the country’s founding father. Now, the island is known for its sprawling wildlife reserve with free-roaming animals ranging from oryxes to cheetahs and gazelles. Game drives into the reserve in open-sided four-wheel vehicles let you enjoy the wildlife from a safe distance. Meanwhile, guided walks through the valley or wadis with their moonscape-like scenery make for a unique experience. Numerous archeological sites including that of a 1,400-year-old Christian monastery beckon explorers. Horse rides and mountain bikes are other ways of discovering all that the island has to offer.
