About Sir Bani Yas Island
Named after the Bani Yas Tribe, the original settlers of Dubai, the Island has a unique heritage, with more than 40 historical sites including the remains of a 600AD old Christian Monastery. The Island was established as a nature reserve in 1977 by the late ruler and founder of the United Arab Emirates Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.
Nature lovers can get up close to free-roaming animals native to the UAE, such as the Arabian Oryx, and others from more distant lands such as the African giraffe. The island is exciting to explore thanks to its unique landscape with dense mangroves, wide savannah as well as unique hilltops formed by salt domes from millions of years ago.
Outdoor enthusiasts are also spoiled for choice, and can take part in kayaking, scuba diving and mountain biking. The Anantara Resort also offers more traditional pursuits such as pearl diving, Abra cruises and falconry encounters.
