If it’s thrilling wildlife experiences, cultural discoveries and exciting activities on land and water you are after, then a holiday to Abu Dhabi’s Sir Bani Yas Island is most definitely for you!
Get Up Close to Wildlife
Sir Bani Yas Island is home to the famed Arabian Wildlife Park featuring thousands of free-roaming animals. On wildlife drives offered by Anantara Sir Bani Yas Island Al Sahel Villa Resort, you can get to see the endangered Arabian oryx as well as cheetahs, barbary sheep, sand gazelles, giraffes and more.
Discover Archaeological Sites
The island is also where you will find everything from archaeological sites to salt domes that are millions of years old. Excursions from the Abu Dhabi luxury hotels on Sir Bani Yas to such historical sites include visits to a Nestorian Christian monastery that goes all the way back to 600 A.D.
There’s much more to experience on land; wadi walks and mountain biking are ideal activities to explore the rugged and idyllic landscapes of the island, while land sailing and archery provide plenty of fun too. For something different you can learn first-hand about falconry as well.
Enjoy Water Sports
The waters surrounding Sir Bani Yas provide plenty of opportunities to try a variety of water sports. Snorkelling gives you a chance to witness diverse marine species such as barracudas and angelfish, while stand-up paddleboarding and kayaking are great for exploring and getting a cardio workout too!
