What outdoor activities does Dubai have to offer? We invite My Dubai Stay to introduce four great pastimes that travellers can enjoy out in the sunshine when visiting the United Arab Emirates.
If you’re lucky enough to be holidaying in Dubai this summer then you’ll no doubt want to make the most of the gorgeous weather. So, what outdoor activities does the stunning city have to offer? Here you can discover the many fun-filled outdoor pursuits available in Dubai.
Spend the Day on the Sand
Whilst hanging out on the beach isn’t the first thing that springs to mind when dreaming of Dubai, the beautiful beaches should not be overlooked. Why? Well, the city is positioned right next to the beach along the Arabian Gulf, plus the sea is so warm! How many times have you gone for a dip in the sea when you’ve been abroad to soon rush back out because it’s too cold? Be sure to embrace the warm sea water whilst in Dubai.
Jumeirah Beach Park is a popular beach that is much loved by both tourists and locals. Whilst you have to pay a small entrance fee of $1.30 (about a pound), it’s worth every cent. Spend the day relaxing on this white sandy beach and lap up every second of bliss.
Have a Whale of a Time at a Water Park
Are you a sucker for aquatic fun? Then there’s no better way to enjoy the scorching sunshine than by spending the day riding thrilling water rides at the city’s much loved waterparks. Aquaventure and Wild Wadi are the two most popular parks in Dubai, offering an extensive range of slides and water activities that are fun for the whole family!
Aquaventure offers 42 acres of jam-packed excitement. Experience slides that’ll get your heart racing by catapulting you through shark filled lagoons, ride on uphill water roller coasters and brave the rapid river adventures! There’s plenty more fun to cover at Dubai’s legendary waterpark, but you need to go and experience it for yourself.
Wild Wadi is situated in front of the stunning Burj Al Arab and offers 30 exciting rides and attractions for all ages. If you’re a bit of an adrenaline junkie, you’ll love the gravity-defying Jumeirah Sceirah, the tallest and fastest freefall water slide outside of North America. You’re tempted, right?
Golf enthusiasts, you’ve come to the right place. There are numerous golf courses located around the city. Who would have thought that Dubai is home to some of the best golf resorts? In fact, there are even courses designed by famous golfers such as Ernie Els and Tiger Woods.
So, despite the desert surroundings, Dubai has a range of lush green courses that boast stunning scenery and the perfect place for you to tee off.
Take a Desert Safari
You’d be truly missing out if you travelled all the way to Dubai and didn’t make the most of the many sand dunes. A pastime for the locals is to take their souped-up four wheel drives out into the dunes for an exciting roller coaster ride through the sand. And you too can join them.
Sign up to a desert safari and it’ll no doubt be one of the highlights of your holiday. You’ll get assigned a driver who will take you on a bumpy ride through the sand at extremely fast speeds. A desert safari will be a truly remarkable experience that you’ll never forget.
