Abu Dhabi, the capital city of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has plenty of attractions in store for its visitors. This is the reason why many tourists arrive in this city from distant places of the world every year for their holidays. Among these attractions are the islands off the coast, which you can explore using private boats or ferries. You can also get to some of the islands by cars. These islands can be ideal getaways for those who wish to escape the hustle-bustle of the city and unwind amidst some unique surroundings.

Your Abu Dhabi holidays would give you the opportunity to visit Yas Island, which can be reached by taking a 30-minute drive from the UAE capital. It is home to the ultra-modern Yas Marina Circuit, which hosts the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix every year. You can have some unforgettable experiences at the circuit with a range of packages, such as 'Private Driving Tuition' and 'Passenger Experiences'. The Yas Marina is yet another fabulous attraction, which is poised to become one of the globally renowned yachting grounds. If you're visiting Yas Island with your entire family, don't forget to explore the world-famous theme park, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi.

During your Abu Dhabi holidays, you can also explore Sir Bani Yas Island. If you're a nature lover, you'll enjoy your time spent on this island, which is home to luxury villas, a 5-star hotel, historic sites, and purpose-built stables. At the World Travel Awards held in the year 2014, it was awarded the honour of 'World's Leading Sustainable Tourism Destination'. Over half of the island's area is made up of Arabian Wildlife Park. It has more than 10,000 animals that roam freely in their natural habitat. The animals in this wildlife reserve include gazelles, Arabian Oryx, cheetahs, hyenas, and giraffes.

Saadiyat Island is a fantastic island you can explore with your cheap Abu Dhabi holidays. It takes just seven minutes from the downtown of the UAE capital and about 20 minutes from the Abu Dhabi International Airport to reach this island. The island is undergoing a major transformation, which would make it one of the leading residential, cultural, and business hubs in the world. Saadiyat is home to a visitor centre called 'Manarat Al Saadiyat', which means 'place of enlightenment'. It also has a permanent open-to-the-public exhibition called 'The Saadiyat Story'. It gives you some valuable insights into the island's history and cultural vision through an interactive narrative.

Yet another fascinating island worth visiting is the Nurai Island, which is located to the east of the Abu Dhabi city's coastline. Situated in the waters of the Arabian Gulf, it can be reached with a 10-minute boat ride from Saadiyat Island. This secluded island can also be reached from the country's major travel ports. If you're looking for some serenity and tranquil surroundings, this island would be a perfect destination for you. The island's name is derived from the Arabic word 'nur', which translates as 'light'.
