There is so much going on in this fantastic island resort that narrowing it down to a few top attractions feels like a crime. We’re talking a condensed version of Vegas and Disneyland all rolled into one, with a luxury beach resort mixed in for good measure!
Let's start with the record breakers. Yas Island is home to the world’s biggest indoor theme park, Ferrari World; the worlds biggest roller coaster, Flying Aces; and the world’s second-best waterpark, Yas Waterworld. With a whole host of rides and activities, from waterslides, flumes and wave machines to roller coasters, go-kart racing and live shows, there’s plenty to keep the whole family entertained at Yas Islands incredible parks. Hot off the press is the fact that late spring 2019 is the due date for a whole new Warner Bros Park, the first and only of its kind dedicated to cartoon and DC comic themed rides. Be the first to treat your kids to a truly magical experience, you’ll certainly be a superhero in their eyes.
Calling all Formula 1 fans, Yas Island is also home to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix with the annual event racing around the track of the Yas Marina Circuit. Whether you manage to catch the global motorsport event itself, fancy living the dream with a spin in one of those top-level cars, or want to treat the kids to some karting with a difference, make sure you take the time to visit this unique racing track.
Helicopter aerial tours around the island are offered by Seawings, while those with sea legs can take a boat tour from the Yas Marina. Both are an excellent and adventurous way to take in everything your resort has to offer but the boat tour is particularly stunning if you book for sunset and witness the Yas skyline in its nighttime illumination.
For something a little less adrenaline fuelled, hit a few balls around the award-winning golf-course Yas Links. Recognised as one of the finest luxury courses outside of America, and perfect for anyone who either wants to test their skills on an international course or just relax with a few holiday rounds.
