The 4 Most Instagrammable Places Across Yas Island Abu Dhabi




For many people, Abu Dhabi isn’t just the capital of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Some consider it home, while others see it as one of the best Arab cities to visit in the world.

While it is sometimes overlooked because of its glitzier neighbor, Dubai, Abu Dhabi is one of the most impressive areas in the country and the entire Middle East. It houses stunning attractions, jaw-dropping architecture, and appealing gastronomic delicacies, which makes an Abu Dhabi vacation truly picture-perfect.

Getting ready to try new things and snap awesome pictures for Instagram? 

From a gorgeous sunset to the best theme parks in Abu Dhabi, here are the four most Instagrammable places on Yas Island:


1.  Yas Beach

Known for its crystalline waters, pearly white sand beaches, and lush mangrove surroundings, Yas Beach is the perfect place to spend some quiet time in Abu Dhabi.

This part of Yas Island caters to a wide range of visitors, including families, avid sun lovers, and water sports enthusiasts. Here, you can bathe in the warmth of the sun, sample flavourful tropical drinks and dishes, and build sandcastles with your loved ones, all while beholding the unique beauty of a desert island beach.

Located near Yas Links golf course and Yas Marina Circuit, Yas Beach is the ultimate destination for those seeking relaxation in a place with a gorgeous view. It has an infinity pool that offers a great vantage point of the Abu Dhabi skyline – a popular sight captured in social media photos.

What’s more, you and your companions can stay longer in one of their private chalets or cabanas to give you more time to snap away and make wonderful memories during your Abu Dhabi vacation.


2.   Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi


What’s more Instagram-worthy than a selfie with your favourite superheroes? 

We’re guessing most of you would answer ‘none’. After all, it’s not every day you get a chance to rub elbows and take pictures of Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, and the rest of the Justice League.


Best Photo Opportunities

At Warner Bros. Abu Dhabi, there’s nothing stopping you from creating a virtual scrapbook full of memories with the Dark Knight. Join him in the Batman: Knight Flight attraction as he pursues his life’s mission to rid Gotham City of evildoers.

Once you’ve had enough of the thrill of the chase, you can also head over to the City of Tomorrow, where Clark Kent (a.k.a. the Man of Steel) attempts to keep the citizens safe in Superman 360: Battle for Metropolis.

Of course, Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi has more ‘lands’ you can explore beyond the world of heroes. There’s Bedrock, a Stone Age suburb more popularly known as the home of the Flintstones. And there’s Dynamite Gulch and Cartoon Junction, where other famous cartoon characters reside.

Soon, Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi will also be home to the first-ever Harry Potter-themed destination in the Middle East.
