Stuck in the concrete jungle? Forget about the summers you’ve spent couped up within the four walls of your home and make the most of what’s left of this season by planning your next activity! Never miss a blissful beach day, ride a bike, perfect paddle, ski jump, or watch a spectacular sunset again. Check out our recommendations for things to do this vacation to cross them off your Summers in Dubai bucket list to ensure an unforgettable day in and out.
Splash in the waters
Look no further for the calming sounds of the Dubai waves crashing into the shore. This bustling city offers some of the greatest locations to beat the summer heat and stay cool in the waters with pristine beaches, a wide variety of water parks, and enjoyable beach clubs. Better yet, if you are a MIK Hills resident, home to Malibu Bay, you can have a wonderful beach experience soaking up the sun from the comfort of your own residential community. When the going gets hot, Malibu Bay is sure to cool your summer down.
Let it snow
Soaked up enough of the sun and looking to cool down? Head to Infinite Ski in Al Quoz for a metropolitan indoor skiing and snowboarding experience where you can also see penguins! Grab your popcorn because you can also enjoy watching some of the latest movies with a warm cup of luscious hot chocolate in the snow at Ski Dubai. Have we also mentioned skating on ice at the Dubai Ice Rink?
Work up a sweat
With a number of indoor sports complexes, fitness and sports enthusiasts have a wide array of options. Head over to Hamdan Sports Complex to sport out on activities that range from Olympic standard swimming and diving pools to basketball, badminton, handball, and more. As for basketball, gymnastics, football, and badminton aficionados, Dubai Sports World at the Dubai World Trade Centre is the place to be. If you also happen to be a MIK Hills or MIK Hills 2 resident, walk out your front door into a range of sports fields, courts, and facilities such as a tennis academy to break a sweat.
Tee off the greenways
From desert golf to mature parkland and link-style courses, Dubai offers elaborate championship golf courses to players of all levels. Challenge yourself this summer on pristine courses played on by some of the world’s greatest golfers. Head on over to the Emirates Golf Club, Dubai Creek Golf Club, or the Trump International Golf Club Dubai to play your next “A” game.
Acquaint with flora & fauna
Encompassing the world’s flora and fauna in one city is Dubai’s forte. Get up close and personal with these attractions by visiting the Dubai Aquarium in The Dubai Mall or the Lost Chambers at Atlantis, The Palm. Learn and admire all there is to know about the marine and aquatic life adopted by Dubai from across the globe. If the ocean life is not your cup of tea and you find yourself leaning more towards nature, the Green Planet will surely transport you into a tropical rainforest paradise, home to over 3,000 plants and animals.
Fun time for kids
With amusement parks, play areas, and parks are strewn across the city, there is no shortage of fun activities for kids in Dubai. Visit one of the four parks of Dubai Parks and Resorts, IMG Worlds of Adventure, or take your kids to Kidzania, where they can engage in real-life scenarios, role-play different professions, and even earn unique ‘Kidzania’ currency. We can guarantee that your little ones’ summer experience will be maximized.
