Plan your journey from Abu Dhabi Ruwais Adnoc Housing Complex
Despite Ruwais once being a small fishing headland with seasonal workers, it’s now one of the most modern towns in the UAE. The beach is a particularly beloved area, where many locals come to relax and enjoy shisha in a lounge overlooking the water. The state-of-the-art Ruwais Shopping Mall is also a popular spot.
Drive just two hours on the Dubai-Ghweifat International Highway and you’ll arrive in Abu Dhabi, one of the UAE’s wealthiest cities. Where else in the world do ATMs dispense gold?
You can’t pass up a visit to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque – a massive complex completely covered in art. Its hand-knotted carpet is the largest in the world, and so is its chandelier and dome. Another oddity, Capital Gate, is a building that leans sideways at 18 degrees – even further than the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
To appreciate the natural beauty surrounding Abu Dhabi, board a catamaran tour from one of the marinas to see the city’s skyline from a unique perspective.
With wide-open roads just waiting to be driven, Abu Dhabi is best explored by car.
Beyond Abu Dhabi
There’s plenty to do outside Ruwais and Abu Dhabi. With its pristine beaches, desert oases and affluent cities, the UAE has it all.
Liwa Oasis is just a short drive from Ruwais along the E45, set in the Empty Quarter area. It’s known for being the birthplace of the ruling families in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, but is now a peaceful desert area that entices travellers from all over the world. The UAE’s most impressive sand dune is found here (the Tal Mireb) at 100 metres tall. Sir Bani Yas Island
Just off the coast near Ruwais, Sir Bani Yas Island once housed Arabia’s largest wildlife reserve. Nowadays, it’s still home to a huge number of free-roaming animals, as well as several million trees and plants. There’s also a bird sanctuary onsite and – as a visitor – you can try your hand at mountain biking, archery, hiking, snorkelling, and more. The island is easily reached by driving to the Sir Bani Yas Island jetty, where a water taxi takes visitors between the mainland and island.
Take Dubai-Ghweifat International Highway and E11 for 50 minutes and you’ll arrive in Al Marfa. This beach town provides a holiday getaway for many locals in Abu Dhabi and it’s the perfect place to spend a relaxing day by the ocean. Indulge in the many restaurants and cafes around town, or simply take in the sunset views.
