Liwa – oasis quarter in Abu Dhabi emirate of the UAE is located south of Abu Dhabi, border area with Saudi Arabia. Similar like the sentinel guarding the southern approaches to the emirate it acts like a sentry on the fringes of the Empty Quarter, the renowned Rub Al Khali – the biggest sand desert in the world.
The oasis consists of number of little towns and villages, with farms extending up to the dunes and which often rising to hundreds of meters high. The prime attraction of the area is the regularly changing colours of the sand, from gold to red, particularly at the starting and at the end of the day.
While during the nights in the desert camp, it is a perfect ambience to relax and you could lie in the sand enjoying millions of stars above.
