The trip is 3 hours from Abu Dhabi. Made easy by the 160km per hour speed limit and then 140 kph. You pass through thafra nice small city. Then it gets pumpy and roller-coaster like. The puplic facilities are overused and it seems they are in need for maintenance since long time. As a first timer the availability of all what you need in a mobile fashion is surprising. It's a journey for one day and looks glamorous and attractive at night. However it gets noisy and unappealing if you decide to spend the night. Coz the engine never stop grinding till the break of dawn. A good plan is to wake up latein the afternoon and there. Eat drink walk talk and watch then head back or out there to a hotel or home for a quiet night and comfy sleep unless you have some other plans. And pick your friends the road can get long and boring.

Visited Moreeb dune during the weekend for Liwa Festival 2020. The road from Liwa to Moreeb dune is zigzag and it was really interesting. Many activities and a lot of people camping. The sight of the modified and tuned cars roaring and climbing the steep dunes, was really thrilling. It was a memorable experience and well worth it.

Lots of gorgeously shaped sand dunes on the drive out to Moreeb Dune. I was impressed on its height and steepness. I didn't bother trying to climb it as I had walked up lesser ones and they weren't easy. I'd love to watch an event there though as it must be pretty wild tackling the dune in a buggy.

Moreeb dune, part of Liwa desert is a must see. We actually visit every weekend the camp of our friends. And from a resident point of view, I believe it is important for new visitors to keep some things in mind. As moreeb is getting more new visitors, more and more dangers occur. Moreeb officially was opened and started for the local people to play with their cars, buggies and bikes. So there will always be this kind of action.Dont think you find peace and quietness there. If you are looking for that, you will need to drive into one of the sabkhas for quietness.. New visitors walk always up the dune and then stop on top and sit in a little bowl. This is very dangerous! We, in our buggies and cars, cannot always see you!!! Please always stay on high points where you are visible for everyone! Also camping, many people have started camping along the road in the dark!!! This is extremely dangerous, as the side of the road is being used by buggies and bikes with special tyres. Even more, during the festival in december, we are NOT allowed to use the road, and must use the sand all times. You are not visible!!!!!! Always camp and stay somewhere where you are clearly visible from at least 50 metres away, to all directions. Also, we have noticed that many tourists are afraid of the emirati people. Emirates are actually very kind people, and if they invite you for a coffee or tea, dont be afraid! All our friends are local, and have the kindest hearts!
