Destination Details

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Yas Island is a man-made island in Abu Dhabi developed in 2006, with the aim of turning the island into a multi-purpose leisure, shopping and entertainment center at an estimated total cost of over $40 billion. This investment was planned as a multi-staged project to unfold in phases until 2018, with project stakeholders foreseeing the possibility of extending development by adding new venues and upgrading existing facilities.

It occupies a total land area of 2,500 ha (25 km2), of which 1,700 ha will be claimed for development. Yas Island holds the Yas Marina Circuit which has hosted the Formula One Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix since 2009.

Both business and leisure travelers visit Yas Island. Yas Island was named the world's leading tourism project at the World Travel Awards in November 2009.
