Das Island is an island in the Arabian / Persian Gulf near Qatar. It is part of the emirate of Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
but lies well offshore, about 100 miles (160 km) north-west of the
mainland. It covers approximately 0.75 miles (1.21 km) by 1.5 miles
(2.4 km), and is almost rectangular in shape.Das Island is inhabited by oil and gas industry personnel. It exports crude oil and liquefied natural gas by tankers as far as Japan and Europe. There is a small airport.Das Island was formerly a noted breeding site for turtles and seabirds.
Despite oil and gas production, turtles still feed safely in the area
and Das Island has remained an important landfall for migrant birds.
There are few traces of ancient inhabitants on Das Island apart from
some pieces of Islamic pottery. The island was also used as a place of refuge during storms by fishermen and pearl divers.
