Al Qudra Lakes are one of the best options for eco-tourism travelers in UAE. The oasis has the status of a wildlife park, a visit to which is absolutely free for all guests. For tourists, this is a great opportunity to see something different from what is usually expected from a trip to Dubai, and for locals a chance to take a break from the bustle of the city. Here you can ride bicycles, have a barbecue and just enjoy the views of the lakes.
One of the lakes is called the Lake of Love. Mohammed Al Maktoum, Prime Minister and Vice President of the United Arab Emirates, came up with the idea of creating a place for the rest of lovers. Since the lake is man-made, it could be given any shape. The creators opted for two crossing hearts. The coastal area is decorated in the appropriate style: decorative hearts made of wood are visible everywhere, and a small grove is planted nearby. If you look at it from a bird’s eye view, then the plantings add up to the word “love.”
On the territory of the Al Qudra Lakes there is a shop with bicycles rental, which are created specifically for riding on the sand. They will greatly facilitate your travel in the desert and will allow you to explore the greatest number of beauties of the oasis. If you don’t want to ride on the sand, you can move to the world’s longest cycle path, which is about 84 kilometers long. If you hit Al Qudra on Friday, you have a great chance to take part in a bike ride for amateurs or professionals. For a more relaxing holiday, camping is suitable; tourists especially love it for the opportunity to sit at sunset and meet the enchanting sunrise.
