People Are Calling This Amazing View ‘Abu Dhabi’s Milky Way Spot’

Al Quaa desert nicknames as the ‘Milky Way Spot’ is a MUST visit area in Abu Dhabi. You can see the galaxy and stars clearly on a clear night at this spot.

Al Quaa Desert is located at 23.604633,54.750256 which is 90 minutes away from Abu Dhabi’s city on the road to Al Ain. Darkness is the most important element, so avoid going on a Full Moon night. The best time to go is on a New Moon night and when the sky is clear.

The desert is the best place to go stargazing, camping, and even sand boarding!

If you’re planning a visit to Al Quaa Desert here are a few things you should keep in mind

  1. Do not litter! Carry extra garbage bags to carry trash to the correct area of disposal.
  2. Bring lots of water and food since the closest petrol station is at least 15 minutes away.
  3. Carry a flashlight or floodlight for when you choose to walk around at night.
  4. Be considerate of others by turning your car’s headlights off and keep noise to a minimum.
  5. Bring a blanket or some chairs so you can lay down or have a seat while stargazing so you don’t strain your neck.
  6. Finally, just have fun and enjoy the stars!
