Create an itinerary including Al Ain Oasis
Explore one of the most essential aspects of urban infrastructure at Al Ain Oasis, a peaceful urban oasis--literally. Known for its below-ground falaj irrigation system, with sloping underground channels transporting water from the main source to key areas, the site possesses an agricultural, historical, and biological importance. Recognized internationally as a significant heritage site, the irrigation system dates back some 3,000 years, and many of the palm plantations here still function as farms. Covering an area of 1,200 hectares (2,965 acres), the oasis and surrounding plantations are home to more than 147,000 date palms of 100 different varieties. Follow the shady pathways and take in the greenery and tranquility. To visit Al Ain Oasis on your trip to Al Ain, use our Al Ain travel route planner.

  • This is a beautiful oasis in the heart of the city. We watched a man climb the date palm trees to retrieve the dates. It's a nice place to relax.

  • Al Ain Oasis is a best place for those looking to immerse themselves in nature life, and a walk around the oasis is a breathtaking way to do it. Very good pathways are shaded by a vibrant canopy of trees blooming with fruits like mangoes and date. The oasis is also ripe for exploration on two wheels. Relax and ride a bicycle underneath the shade of the palm fronds for a more unique places. Best time go morning or evening. Open time 9 to 5pm. Free parking and entry . I like the farm water line system
  • A nice place for a get away weekend for a nice walk around full date farms. It’s very good and surprising to see such grown trees in Oasis. I would recommend to take bicycle so that it would be nice to see farms like this. It will not take much time hardly 15 to 20 mins, even if skipped no issues. It’s free of cost, no entry fee only have to pay for bicycle or buggy that’s all. There are 1 or 2 small restaurants in the premises
  • What a diamond is this place in a desert country... wow… Wonderful climate inside with ample of trees and walkways. You can use the rented bicycle to move around the oasis. Neat and clean,many sitting areas,having mosque and cafeteria inside too.cold wind energize you in the hot summer even.Entry fee is free and only they are checking al hosn green pass here due to the pandemic at the entrance security gate.
  • It was a great weekend to spend in the luxury of greenery, which we rarely get in the gulf. Even though the weather was hot, it is quite ok to walk inside the oasis walkway. Remember to take a bottle with you so that you can fill it up with cold water from water coolers placed in particular places throughout the oasis.
  • Alain Oasis a beautiful UNESCO heritage site in the middle of Alain city. The place is so serene and when you walk few meters inside, the place completely disconnects the sound and buzzing of the city. It has beautiful spread of palm trees, Mango trees and a beautifully laid out irrigation channel. There are birds singing everywhere. The place brings a magical calm and makes forget about the distractions. The walk approximately takes an hour and half from one end to another.They even have cycles for rent near the gate if you are not very keen on strolling. If you are a person who loves nature, you would really enjoy and appreciate the place.
