DAY 1: Sir Bani Yas Island

Welcome to Dubai! Today, your exhilarating adventure begins as you touch down in Dubai early in the morning. After a private transfer to the Al Bateen Executive airport in Abu Dhabi, you will board a 40-minute flight for Sir Bani Yas Island, an incredible desert island with no shortage of wildlife and thrill-seeking activities. Settle into your two-bedroom pool villa at Al Sahel Villas and enjoy your first evening.
