Sir Bani Yas Island is 100 nautical miles from Abu Dhabi. A week holiday is ideal for this trip, although it can be done over a long weekend (min 4 days). The journey starts from Yas Marina Abu Dhabi. We typically leave the marina on Thursday mid-afternoon. The trip starts and ends with a 2 hours sail through the Yas Channel. From the Louvre Abu Dhabi (end of Yas Channel), we sail straight toward Sir Bani Yas Island. The journey takes some 15 hours, it can be done at night while you are asleep, in that case you are welcome to stay on the deck and enjoy the beautiful nigh sail under the stars! Sir Bani Yas is surrounded by 6 discovery islands, all wild and beautiful islands. The area is home to some of the clearest waters in the UAE. The environment is pristine and much wildlife can be observed. Barbeques can be organized on the beach. It is also possible to sail to Sir Bani Yas and deploy the anchor on the beach of the hotel Anantara. There you can enjoy a meal or even a tour of the island.
