Abu Dhabi and its surrounding islands are jewels in the Arabian Gulf. Relaxing crystal clear water that is so warm you’ll feel as though you’re chilling in a jacuzzi.

One of the most tranquil beaches in Abu Dhabi is Yas Beach and here are 5 amazing facts about this majestic spot.

1. YAS BEACH IS ONLY 20 MINUTES FROM DOWNTOWN ABU DHABI

Drive along E10 (Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Road) and follow the signs to Yas Island.
