If you love nature, desserts and motor sports. You should not miss visiting it while being in UAE. It's around 3/4 hours away from Abu Dhabi City; & a trip with night stay a Liwa might offer you more quality time.

The road to the dune is really great and offers terrific views all over. The dune itself is awesome, but the area around is truly poor and looks dilapidated.

We drove out to the dune from Liwa, and the drive itself is pretty cool. You don't realise how different colours, contours and shapes the desert actually has. We were dissapointed in that there were no vehicles driving up the dune when we went, but...More
