The latest attraction boasts with not so ordinary trees, butterfly sanctuary and ancient rocks located between the picturesque Khalid Lagoon and the skyline with the view of the Sharjah landscape.

The island which is linked to Buhairah Corniche via footbridge next to Al Noor mosque is entwined by tortuous wooden pathways that take guests through the foliage.

The butterfly house is the major attraction inside the island. It is taking care of 500 exotic butterflies from East Asia. The imported trees are in unusual form particularly the olive tree from Spain which has been living for 250 years.

Crystal rocks and art sculptures accentuated several areas. A dedicated area for the children to play and a pavilion where visitors can relax are also included. During the night, colorful laser lights will give the island a fantasy fairy tale ambiance, as the trees and rocks are lighted up in brilliant colors.
