YAS ISLAND

Yas Island is an island near the city of Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. Yas Island is just off the coast about 20 km from Abu Dhabi city center. It has a land area of 2,500 hectares. The island should not be confused with Sir Bani Yas Island.


The Yas Island Circuit, the host of the Formula One Abu Dhabi Grand Prix since 2009, is here. The island will also be home to several theme park-based attractions such as Warner Bros Movie World, a movie theme park by Warner Bros; the Ferrari theme park Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, and a water park. It also has a marina.


Yas Island is quite big and its attractions are spread out. The only practical way to get around is by private vehicle. The roads around Yas Island are wide and good.
