Ramadan 2019: You can now iftar under the stars in Sharjah

Al Noor Island has launched a Ramadan experience with a twist

For those who want to break their fast with a view, a new Ramadan experience in Sharjah offers something a little different from the typical hotel buffets.

Al Noor Island, a waterfront attraction nestled in the emirate's Khalid lagoon, has launched an iftar meal that also includes a unique nature-based activity.

The package's feast of dishes is followed by a guided stargazing session, allowing guests to take in the wonder of the UAE's skies with full bellies.

The tranquil experience, which costs Dh85 for adults and Dh35 for children, also includes access to the island itself, which is home to a Literature Pavilion, Butterfly House, numerous sculptures and masses of plantlife.

Diners can take iftar at Al Noor Cafe or outdoors, on the bay of the island, with dishes including Arabic and international options. The stargazing takes place later using a powerful telescope, an astronomy guide on hand to help you explore the skies.

Al Noor Island, which first opened in 2015, spans more that 45,000 square metres, and also boasts a children’s play area, a trampoline, and a 3.5-kilometre wooden walkway, offering visitors a picturesque glimpse at the destination, with soothing background music.
