Yas Island is a centerpiece of ALDAR’s destination development strategy, and is a major landmark for Abu Dhabi. It is a multipurpose hub for entertainment, shopping and tourism, connected to the mainland through a comprehensively linked road network.
It is already home to the Yas Marina Circuit, which hosts the Abu Dhabi Formula 1 Grand Prix each year. It boasts major retail in the form of Yas Mall and IKEA. Two theme parks are in operation – Yas Waterworld and Ferrari World – with more marked out for development in the future. Yas Island is home to exceptional hospitality and leisure venues such as Yas Links, Yas Marina, Yas Plaza, The Viceroy and du Arena. Looking to the future, the population is expected to grow significantly with many more projects planned and under development.
