Noor Island has opened since December 2015, Al Noor Island has won a large group of lofty worldwide honors from the International Property Awards, IF Design Award 2017 and German Design Award 2018.

The Butterfly House was granted the WAN Metal in Architecture Award 2016 in enthusiasm in utilizing metal in an imaginative way, and around the same time was perceived in the Iconic Awards 2016, in the Best Architectural Design category.  The butterfly garden has around 300 beautiful butterflies running around and nurtured beautifully regulating the humidity and room temp as per their requirement. Making the interiors feel close to nature; this tiny ambience feels the need to be loved


Open spaces to go around and precarious ropes to explore that guarantees unlimited long periods of fun. It's the place where kids can appreciate some quality open air time in a protected and controlled climate while we can seat and enjoy the chirping of the birds while we relax on our seats.

Al Noor Island has been conceptualized and worked to open your brain to a horde of articulations and encounters. This Island offers the best blend of amusement, craftsmanship, schooling and diversion for the whole family. Lets just absorb the serenity and day very much well spent at Al Noor Island.

They have remarkable pieces that supplement the contributions of the Island while coordinating flawlessly with its common space and social perspectives.


Twist up with your comfort pads, pen down your musings in total quietness or just discover motivation in lovely stanzas. It is the place for book lovers look for comfort from the clamoring city life to dive into writing, verse and everything to do with the composed word. With elegant planned seating zones and unpretentious calligraphic reflections make an open stage for the trading of thoughts and scholarly articulations.

This island is home to more than 70,000 trees and plants, presenting a romanticized perspective on nature. There are antiquated Spanish olive tree, jug and umbrella-molded trees, transcending desert flora, therapeutic plants, fancy grass and many more. They have unique trees preserved with the story behind. All the trees have been saved! Cactus plants are very huge and different from the usual we see. Plants are unique and lovely inside the venue.


Whats more beautiful in this venue? In the nights, the flexible scene illuminates like a fantasy. Watch the Meadows with wonder as the shining flowerbed change tone in a synchronized way. The LED lights complement the trees and cast bright shadows.

LED is the primary part that illuminates the Island's structures, walkways, trees and extension. At the point when the sun sets, end up amidst gleaming pixie lights, warm shines and brilliant neons that make for a wonderfully amazing evening.


Noor Café offers a sound choice of awesome tidbits and reviving beverages in a green, open and normally lit scene, which is likewise home to more than 300 outlandish butterflies.


Art room for kids to have a bit of their own time to colour and shed off their happiness. A tiny set up beautiful just outside the entry of the butterfly pavilion. They van take their beautiful work back home.


Located at the best place of the island to enjoy the sunset. A time i enjoyed the most. It not only lightens your mind, but the stress level was at the minimal. As the sunsets the LED lights and turns the entire venue to whole new beauty.


They also accept private events to make your occasion even more beautiful. With COVID restrictions under control, everything will be managed by them and the way you want!

A leisurely escape to nature. We enjoyed our stroll and took a lot of photos. Two hours were enough to see the small island. We loved every bit of it but wished the Ova installation wasn't closed during our visit.

The Butterfly House is a must! It's very fascinating to see different species in one place. And they all seemed friendly too! Thanks to Jacquie for accommodating us and the staff at the Cafe.

We got the Noor Cafe tickets (self-exploration + food) and we're so happy because it's a really good bargain! The food at the Cafe was scrumptious, especially the burger! Might come back to Al Noor Island again to see its beauty during golden hour.

The gardens are green but disappointing. Half the island is overgrown with Singapore daisy (a weed) and the little bit of "art" is a few boring cliché shapes. The butterfly house was one room with a few nice butterflies and a very helpful lady explaining everything.
The carrot cake was ok but overall it only lasted 30 min so way too expensive too. The bridge was the nicest part. Sharjah usually does a much better job of public places.

Situated right in the middle of the city, Al Noor Island is a lush escape. The gardens are full of life, with mature plants and trees creating a beautiful canopy shading your walk around the island. The butterfly pavilion is a favorite of many visitors, with several species flying all around in the greenhouse-type building. You can see the butterflies in various metamorphic states in the glass-fronted hatching cases. Other features of the island are a sound garden, a reading pavilion, a cafe and lots of places to sit and enjoy the sounds of nature. The island is decoratively lit in the evenings as well, but I think the morning is the best time to visit. Bring a good book and plan to relax for a while.

A small cute island connected to sharjah corniche in majaz full of trees and birds. Had a nice walk around with different named areas. Feel as if in a forest. The small butterfly park is also part of this. Very cute and enjoyable for children. But overpriced!
