Top things to do in Sir Bani Yas Island – Enjoy Exotic Arabian Island Vibes

Beautiful Sir Bani Yas Island Abu Dhabi is the epitome of Arabic Island lifestyles. From rustic desert wildlife to exploring the Arabian Gulf and relaxing in style the location promises loads more.


Deep Sea Fishing Around Sir Bani Yas Island

Get set for the adventure of a lifetime as you head out into the Arabian Gulf in a fishing trawler. Specialised fishing trips are available for both amateur and professional anglers. The practice is Troll Fishing, a process where more than one fishing line with bait is dragged through the water. The result is quite rewarding as you come up with Spanish Mackerel, Queen Fish, Barracuda, King Fish and more. Tours last from 1.5hrs to 6hrs and may be booked individually or as a group with specialised 'ladies only' tours also offered.


Snorkelling and Scuba Diving is too Good to Miss

Any beach resort Abu Dhabi is home to will promise scuba diving and snorkelling but it is safe to say not many can match the experience off Sir Bani Yas Island. Exploring the off-shore reefs are a treat for the whole family and yield a myriad of marine life thriving in the warm waters of the Arabian Gulf. Tours are open to enthusiasts as young as 10 years while snorkelling can be taken up by just about anyone capable of swimming. Whether you are staying at Anantara Sir Bani Yas Island Resorts or not you should certainly consider taking a water taxi to the island for a day of some super snorkelling and diving; coupled with lavish Arabic island hospitality and experienced guides who promise a memorable diving adventure.


Nature Walks – Enjoy the Rugged Landscape

Nature is an integral part of Sir Bani Yas Island and those of us lucky enough to spend a holiday at one of the island resorts will be surrounded by rustic desert landscapes. Suitable for those 6 years and above the nature walks are treks that target the eastern edge of the island where you discover unique flora and fauna. Interact and marvel at the exotic wildlife and be enamoured by the ruggedly stunning environs.


Jeep Safaris

Taking you deeper into the folds of the Island the jeep safaris organised by Sri Bani Yas Island resorts are fabulous for some exhilarating 4X4 fun across the desert island. Zoom past rustic rocky outcrops and marvel at sights of rare Oryx, gazelle, cheetah, giraffe and gorgeous flamingos. Jeep safaris are open to children as young as 1 year and may take up 2 hours. Parties of 7 guests are generally accommodated in one jeep and tours take you across the desert as well as the protected Arabian Wildlife Park; home to some of the best wildlife in Abu Dhabi.
