The vast expanse of desert that lies outside the Liwa Oasis in the Western Region is perfect for adrenaline fuelled off-road driving. With 300 metre dunes and long sand valley, you'll never get bored of desert driving. 
Skiing  takes on a whole new meaning on Abu Dhabi’s desert dunes. Boasting the world’s largest dunes, towering hundreds of metres above the surrounding plains, the Liwa Oasis is a sand skier’s paradise.

A trip to the desert isn't complete without a night under the stars. You can arrange camping adventures with a tour company or rent a four wheel drive and buy the equipment yourself. 

Almost a fairytale from ‘1001 nights’, the magnificent Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort by Anantara seems to spring out of nowhere, a luxurious oasis in the midst of the mystic Liwa Desert. Enjoy an array of facilities and desert experiences and immerse yourself in the wonderful splendour of an eternally changing landscape.

On a dedicated Al Khatem plot in Al Ain, deep in Abu Dhabi’s heritage heartland, the Arabian Nights Village harnesses the soul and essence of old Arabia. Conceived to give visitors a chance to experience the mythical and timeless beauty of the desert and traditional Emirati life, the village is not a hotel, but by no means a rustic camp.
