This place attracts travelers with a possibility to visit the Date Festival. Also the landscapes of Liwa oasis are so unusual that they create a sense of a true mirage.
The landscapes of Liwa oasis are so unusual that they create a sense of a true mirage. The chain of fifty small oases stretching over a hundred kilometers alternates with huge sand dunes.
In addition, the desert acquires incredible shades at different times of the day. This contrasting landscape seems unreal, but this is what attracts numerous travelers in this region.
Not surprisingly, Liwa oasis is a place where the richest inhabitants of the country choose to stay. Country leaders often come here on holidays, so the access to the oasis is sometimes restricted.
In the vast expanses of the oasis one can not only admire the surroundings during a picnic with friends. They also offer perfect conditions and opportunities for surfing on sand dunes. The most famous 300-meter Moreeb Dune is located here; it is half a kilometer long and inclined at 50 degrees.
In addition, falconry and even camel rides are sometimes held in Liwa.
But it is the Date Festival that has made the oasis so popular. The UAE's largest holiday dedicated to the date tree worshipped by the Arabs takes place here. At this festival you can enjoy more than 200 varieties of dates.
