This is a beautiful place for family outing like a picnic. The gardens below the foot of mountain is a nice place to have a barbecue with hot water spring running just next to you. The belief says these waters have medicinal effects. There are many activities for kids as well like camel ride, pony ride, 9D movie, etc. Also... More

A wow drive. This is one my favorite place in UAE and been there several times. The mountain drive is so good, there are several stopovers or parking space allows to have different view of mountain and easy for photography. At the top a huge parking place and have a coffee shop. The view from the top is amazing. Better... More

Jabal Hafeet is a hill just outside Al Ain. It has a superb road leading to the top - absolutely perfect. I can't think of any other bends in the UAE (aside from a million roundabouts) so the locals come here to practice - and you can see the results of that on the walls. The road is perfect -... More

Well worth the drive from Dubai. Beautiful views back across Al Ain on one side and the Sultanate of Oman the other. Quite a spectacular drive up and down, with plenty of places to stop to enjoy the scenery, take photos etc. Even a decent hotel resort near the top to stop and have a cuppa !! Wasn't busy either...

The view is very good on a clear day. There isn't really anything to do once you get to the top. It is a firm favourite with cyclists and motorcyclists. Early morning over weekends you are sure to see lots of them on this road that twists 13km up the highest peak in Abu Dhabi

The views are breathtaking. The spring is quite close to the mountain and there is a lovely park there as well. You can have a nice BBQ(Braai) there. Normally cooler than Dubai. The only thing to do at the top is look at the bottom

The drive to the top is really stunning. This is a great but steep drive up to the top of Jabal Hafeet Mountain - lots of place to stop along the way. Can get very busy at weekends especially close to sunset.

Really beautiful, sweeping views of the desert and the city from Jebel Hafeet. I believe it is the second tallest mountain in the UAE. It was an easy drive up the mountain, and there were a few cafes and a small playground up there as well. We stayed there about 30 minutes, including walking around and getting a coffee as... More

We drove up on a Friday afternoon to take in the scenery. The mountains are quiet remarkable in that they just don't seem to belong in the middle of the desert. The windy drive has numerous places to stop and take pictures prior to reaching the top. From the summit Oman is visible on a clear day; today there was... More
