Eid Special: Explore man-made island in west coast of UAE


Event details

Dear all CARNITY members,

It is my very first time to showcase a unique road trip on western coast line of United Arab Emirates toward Tarif on Ghuwaifat national highway in Abu Dhabi. I got this idea to introduce this trip on Carnity when some of my colleagues randomly explore that location.

Description: its 2 hr 43 min drive, 265 KM from Jebel Ali as per below map. (Area - Qareen Al Aish).

Attractions: Turtles, Sea Snakes, Octopus, Crabs, Water Dams, Mangroves, different type of beaches, Palm tree farms and much more. Its actually a man made island as per (Image 2) and only a tiny road is linked to the final spot at the end.

Draw Back: There is no street lights on internal roads, so the best time to experience this place is in a day light and evening or with outdoor lights.

Level of Drive: All types of vehicles can reach to the final spot, also there is few white sand beaches where only 4X4 can go through. 

There is plenty of spot where we can clicks some mesmerizing pictures for our Carnity group and keep our photo gallery healthy enough. According to me, I think we should explore this area in a big numbers group to create an another milestone trip for Carnity. This trip will offer great opportunity for photographers - be it oceanic, beach or night photography. This trip will offer great day for family fun with kids on secluded island and beach side bbq, shisha and get together.
