Yet another exclusive island destination has been added to the MSC offer: it’s the Sir Bani Yas Island beach oasis, starting from winter 2016/2017 for all Emirates itineraries

Stretching along the coast of a natural island just off the southwest coast of Abu Dhabi, the reserve has been transformed into a beach oasis destination, exclusive for the use of MSC Cruises guests when docked. 

The first ship to reach Sir Bani Yas will be MSC Fantasia, which will take its guests for a full day on this stunning tropical island paradise enriched by the full offering of the MSC world of choice.
MSC Cruises has been working on perfecting this destination together with the Abu Dhabi Port Authority for over two years. The tropical beach oasis is on a smaller island, connected to the main island by a romantic wooden boardwalk that leads into an authentic beach holiday experience, with hundreds of palm trees, shaded cabanas and over 2,000 sunbeds across 36,000 sqm of fine golden beaches.
To top off your beach experience you can enjoy:
  - An MSC Aurea Spa
  - Sports facilities, including beach volleyball and tennis
  - A family and kids-dedicated area, with a parents’ pergola
  - A Bedouin tent offering arts and crafts created by local communities
  - A lounge space with a bar and live music, for relaxing
  - Offroad 4X4 excursions
  - Visits to the ongoing archaelogical excavations in the island
Not to mention the selection of fresh and authentic food options, with a range of cooking stations serving small delights from the region as well as international favourites.
From relaxation to action, Sir Bani Yas is designed to be exactly the beach island you were wishing for.
And you can fly-and-cruise to it this winter.
