Literally a green oasis

This is a much bigger area than you would imagine, some 1200 hectares of date palm, apparently some 147,000. as well as bananas, figs and even mangos This is a centuries old... read more

I am sure they are more exciting places to look at somebody climbing up a tree and testing some sweet dates.

a nice walk, but not much else to see. if you are there for a day. it is not worth it as there are many other things to do. it was a nice day and sun was shining (that was the only nice thing).

This is a much bigger area than you would imagine, some 1200 hectares of date palm, apparently some 147,000. as well as bananas, figs and even mangos This is a centuries old "plantation" or rather a collection of small plots hugging the water hole and given over to extensive date palms. These are interlinked by an equally old drainage system... More

You can watch workers cut the Dates from the tree, and try the fruits. Plenty of places to sit in the shade away from the noise of the city. Lots of paths to walk along, although very few signs to lead you to the other side, but added to the adventure.

If you love peace and greenery, Al Ain Oasis is the ultimate place to spend hours. Mild temperature even in summers, fragrance of fresh dates and leaves, mild sunlight penetrating from leaves of clusters of date trees, water canals, silence and singing of birds. These are the main features of this hidden gem. The oasis might be difficult to reach... More

The Oasis, next to the Al Ain National Museum, is a nice, pleasant, and cool place to walk through, especially in the middle of the day. I'd recommend not straying from the main path too much, as although the oasis is not too big, it's not hard to get lost!

The temperature drops a few degrees as soon as you walk into the shade of the date palm plantation. The walkway is elevated above the plantation floor so you can see how they irrigate the palm trees, which are very thirsty plants. Great place to take a quiet walk and meditate/reflect, depending of course on the time of day you're... More

Spent the long weekend at Danat Resort in Al Ain, 5 star. Valet parking, on arrival- hot towel, fresh cool juice while at reception, collecting the keys. Friendly staff, very supportive. Excellent room service. Facilities on site was amazing. Rooms had massive beds, with crisp beddings, large balcony overlooking the resort- poolside. Numerous pools to choose from. Shisha around the... More

Very big and a wonderful walk, peace and quiet and a variety of things to look at. It takes a while to walk it, so take comfortable shoes/sandals, water etc.

Liked our stop at this museum. A lot of historical artifacts and information about the early history of the area. Not a lot to do other than the small museum, but it was a very small entrance fee and worth the visit for sure.
