Top 5 Outdoor Activities in Dubai by Flytographer – Dubai is home to many things; among the biggest are the sands and sea. Here are our favorite activities for experiencing both.
GO OFF-ROADING IN THE DESERT –OFF ROAD-ZONE offers desert off-roading experiences and the best part is you get to be behind the wheel. By the end of your 5-hour driving experience, you’ll feel like an off-roading pro hitting the dunes with aplomb.
HIT THE WATERPARKS – Located on the man-made, palm-shaped Palm Jumeirah, AQUAVENTURE WATERPARK boasts a private beach, as well as all the finest slides, river rides and otherwise. Kids will love Splasher’s Children’s Play Area, as well as the chance to feed a cownose ray!
GO SAND BOARDING – Head to the DUBAI CONSERVATION RESERVE and you’ll not only experience a variety of animals, reptiles and plants, but you can sand board, too! This desert sport is just like snowboarding, but on sand.
RIDE A WATER TAXI – Taking an abra across the Dubai Creek is a terrific way to experience the city. You’ll glide past the Gold and Spice Souks and see a fascinating mix of old and new buildings.
SPEND A DAY AT THE BEACH – Marina Beach has clear, warm water and a great view of the Burj Al Arab, so be sure to bring a camera (and sunscreen) when hitting the beach for the day.
