    The Rub' al-Khali desert, Abu Dhabi

    Also known as the "Empty Quarter", it is the largest sand desert in the world.

    Discover The desert

    In the vast region of Abu Dhabi, the desert includes the village of Liwa and its palm tree plantation that spreads over 50 miles. To discover breathtaking landscapes, you have to drive out of Dubai for an hour before finding the red dunes of the Al Hajar mountain range with its torn peaks and unusual gravel plains.
