Perfect Location

Al Reef is a great locale for tourists. It's the perfect place to serve as a hub for all your adventures because it's close to Abu Dhabi tourist attractions like the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. You'll be glad for the short 30-minute drive to the main island, where you can tour this newly built worship center.

Pro tip: pay for the small group guided tour to get a richer experience with a historian. While it's free to visit the mosque and free guided tours are available, you'll appreciate the full tour more.

Al Reef is even closer to popular Al Raha Beach. From great nightclubs to gorgeous waterfront restaurants, the beach life is one you won't want to leave. Spend time by the ocean without any trouble when it's a short jaunt from your apartment in Al Reef.

Next door to Al Raha Beach is Yas Island, where you'll find places like Ferrari World, the high-speed roller coaster Formula Rossa, and Yas Waterworld water park. If racing is a draw for you, there's also the Yas Marina Circuit, a famous Formula One track which hosts the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

You'll love the location as a hub for day trips, too. Al Reef isn't too far from Liwa Oasis and other tourist attractions, making day trips easy and fun.

Close to Nature

Staying in Al Reef for your visit means several parks and green spaces where you can spend time outside. The warm weather in Abu Dhabi makes outdoor places like Town Square Park and Menlow Park ideal for outdoor gatherings. Whether you're ready for an outdoor concert or just some time on the playground for the kids, you'll find it here.

You can also explore another part of nature: the desert. Abu Dhabi's desert is populated with camel farms and the Empty Quarter, the world's largest uninterrupted sand mass. For a taste of what real Bedouin life is like, visit the Arabian Nights Village.

If you like the thrill of a roller coaster, you can try dune bashing, or sliding your 4x4 down the side of a dune. If spectator sports are more your speed, look for camel races.

The star gazing is unbeatable out here in the desert, away from the lights of the city. Check out the clear skies and find all your favorite constellations. Sometimes you'll get lucky and see one of the planets up close or a meteor shower.
