Desert Safari

40 minutes out of Dubai, the desert has activities galore. With dune bashing, sand boarding, quad biking, dune buggying and camel riding, enjoy the scenery and end the day with an evening sunset barbecue. Desert safari packages can be found online or through whats-apping local contacts. It’s an experience not to miss.

Boat Party

Find a group of go-ers and jump on a yacht from the Marina to explore Dubai from the sea. Catch sights of the Burj Al Arab, the old and new Atlantis and the ferris wheel at JBR. Bring lots of food and drinks and the crew might even barbecue for you at sunset. The more people you have, the cheaper the excursion and is totally worth it!

Musandam Cruise

Head via boat through the Musandam Fjords, framed by breathtaking mountain ranges and clear, crisp ocean waves. As you sail, look out for dolphins and jump in for a snorkel at Telegraph Island and Seebi Island. Whether you do a half or full day cruise, this is an epic excursion to get you out of the city.


Escape the high-rise and city lights to visit Hatta. With activities including zip lining, horse riding, camping, hiking, biking and kayaking, you can take your pick of what you want to do first. Whether you go for a day trip or stay the night in the cabins, Hatta is the most underrated adventure in Dubai.
