Search Yalla

The perfect Abu Dhabi day out for the entire family – so much to discover!


From family jaunts in nature to stunning island getaways, this emirate has more than its fair share of superb offerings for that perfect daycay or staycay this summer.

If you’ve decided to stay home in Abu Dhabi for the summer, you’re in the right place! Team Yalla has been on the road searching for the perfect day out or even staycay for all the family. 


Say Yas!



Your entire family is guaranteed the time of their life on every level on Yas Island this summer, from white-knuckle rides to meeting superheroes, to teeing off and leisurely walks by the marina – and so much more, there’s simply so much to see, do and oh so importantly, to taste. 

All the adrenaline-pumping action is there too.  

Head to the world’s largest indoor skydiving chamber and tallest indoor climbing wall in the region at CLYMB. 

Dare the kids – and you – to ride the fastest rollercoaster on Earth at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi. Packed to the rafters with record-breaking rides, this thrilling theme park is not for the faint of heart! 

There is nowhere else in the UAE where you can meet your superheroes face-to-face. Welcome to Warner Bros. World™ Abu Dhabi where your favourite characters come to life. 

And there is Yas Waterworld, where you can hang on the Middle East’s longest suspended rollercoaster. This world-leading water park also has more than 40 rides, slides and attractions that aim to thrill – prepare to get wet!  

And don’t forget, there is a fantastic KIDS GO FREE offer on too, so there is no reason not to visit.

Cultural gems



Al Ain makes for a rather interesting city to explore and it is not called the Garden City for nothing. You could make a day of it or better still, stay overnight in a city of green that is just waiting to be discovered. 

The beauty of this particular trip is that it is not too far yet also a world away, where nature and education meld at an oasis whose history stretches back 4,500 years, not to mention Palace Museum and Al Jahili Fort. 

Take a wander around Mubazzarah, a hot spring, or you could instead drive up Hafeet Mountain and see the entire city of Al Ain spread out before you.


A place of enlightenment



Just seven minutes from the very centre of Abu Dhabi, travelling to this stunning island is a sinch! 

Home to a Cultural District, a self-contained educational, nature and leisure destination of its kind in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi-Jubail Park, a world-class golf course, fabulous beaches and luxury resorts – it is difficult to know where to start, which is why Team Yalla thinks you should make a staycay of it.  

Art lovers of all sizes can head to Manarat Al Saadiyat to catch an art show or why not indulge in some art classes – the little ones will love it! LARTE Ristorante serves up some of the best pizzas too! 

Or head to Louvre Abu Dhabi where works of art from through the ages are on display. We suggest making spending a few days on the Island and the Jumeirah Saadiyat Resort and Saadiyat Rotana Resort & Villas with their pristine white beaches both offer the perfect place from which to explore.
