Wadi Adventure: great desert waves in the United Arab Emirates

A new surf pool has been unveiled in desert sands. The Wadi Adventure is the Middle East's first man-made wave park located at the base of Jebel Hafeet in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates.

Developers of the surf facility promise a surf pool capable of making 3.3-meter-high waves every 90 seconds.

All local and international surfers can enjoy the machine-powered waves from 12 pm in 55-minute surf sessions that can accommodate up to six riders.

You'll pay 100 AED (27 dollars) for the artificial experience. The quality of the wave is quite good. You can ride left and right surfable waves.

The Wadi Adventure is like surfing in the desert. It is also possible to tune and select the size of the waves, whether you're a beginner or an experienced surfer.

Wave conditions change throughout the day, and night surfing sessions are also available for booking.

Three world-class whitewater runways for rafting and kayaking offer a combined length of 1,133 meters.

Take a look at the best surf parks, surf pools, and artificial waves.

Watch how the wave pool pumps waves. There's even a button to control the wave height.
