Maybe because of the Covid 19 pandemic, there were not many people there, and so as a result the atmosphere was quite when we went for a walk in the evening. However the place was very clean and very well maintained. Worth visiting again.

A nice place to visit in the winters; though not much to do
Dec 2019
The Flag Island is one of the three islands on the Khalid Lagoon, which is connected by two motorized bridges to the mainland of Sharjah. While much of the island is occupied by Al Montazah Parks, the other part has a huge UAE flagpole, which is among the biggest in the country and serves as a good photo-op.

The island has a nice garden and a small amphitheatre for cultural performances. There is also a cafe with a children's play area and an art space. One can spend around 45 minutes to an hour here. Entry is free. It's not too pedestrian friendly to get to, however.

A touch of wonder in a wide and beautiful area for friends and families, especially couples to visit. If there is a concert going on, you can listen for free while enjoying fresh scenery under the UAE Flag.

went to the Flag Island on Eid Day. Not much public considering it was a public holiday.It has a 660 metre walking track around and a restaurant with a play area. All in all a nice place to have a leisure walk and decent family time with lot of photo oppurtunities.

Nice Friday morning
Mar 2018 • Couples
You can spend a relaxing weekend morning here: breakfast at Jones the Grocer, followed by a walk on the rubberized path around the island. It is also a nice place to spend an early evening—the views are really nice, and there is a contemporary art gallery (1971) above Jones the Grocer.

We had breakfast here followed by a trip to the nearby fruit & veg market.
