In Dubai, everyone will find entertainment to their taste. In this article, we have collected the most popular ones that tourists prefer during their holidays.

But that’s not all, by opening the Dubai travel guide you can choose for yourself something more unique and suitable for you. In the meantime, let’s take a closer look at some of them.

Water activities

Dubai has something to offer  to all water sports enthusiasts. In addition to diving in a submarine and windsurfing, we recommend trying your hand at a new extreme entertainment – flyboarding. Flyboarding is a “flight” on a special board that is attached to the legs and rises into the air due to the water flow pumped by a powerful pump. With a little practice, you will be able to perform impressive tricks and somersaults on the water. In Dubai, flyboarding is organized by many water sports operators. Among them is Hydro Water Sports.


Riding a jet ski will also give a lot of impressions! You can rent a jet ski in one of the hotels on the coast or in the offices of operating companies in the Dubai Marina area.

Wakeboarding is one of the most interesting and challenging water sports. The athlete stands on a special board, holding on to a rope attached to a tugboat moving in front. Advanced riders perform complex tricks and figures on the board. Parasailing is flying on a parachute, which is attached to a boat by a cable and rises into the air as the towing boat picks up speed. A great way to get a dose of adrenaline and admire the surrounding scenery. You can try your hand at these sports using the services of Sky & Sea Adventures.

Aquapark and Dubai also invite you to plunge into the world of amazing water activities. For example, Laguna Waterpark on the popular La Mer Beach in Jumeirah offers five extreme water slides and plenty of exciting rides. In addition, there are many other water parks in the emirate that are suitable for outdoor activities on the water.


High above the ground

In addition to visiting the observation deck of the tallest building in the world, Dubai is ready to offer you a lot of other unexpected and interesting entertainment high above the ground. XLine Dubai Marina  is the world’s longest urban zipline with one of the steepest and fastest tracks. Its height is 170 meters, and the maximum speed reaches 80 kilometers per hour! The helmets are equipped with cameras that allow video recording of the flight. Bookings for downhill skiing can be made at the XLine office at the Dubai Marina Mall.

Skydive Dubai offers the ultimate free fall experience. Parachute jump in tandem with an instructor over the island of Palm Jumeirah or over the desert will help you look at the emirate from a completely new perspective.

Experienced skydivers can make a solo jump. The city’s famous theme parks Dubai Parks and Resorts and IMG Worlds of Adventure offer breathtaking rides.


Mountain trails and sand dunes

Safari in the desert of Dubai will be an unusual and memorable entertainment! Dubai  offers guests a rich entertainment program in the desert of the emirate: tours of the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, participation in falconry, studying the constellations in the company of a professional astronomer and flying in a hot air balloon.

The picturesque town of Hatta is surrounded on all sides by the Hajjar Mountains. In recent years, it has become a meeting point for numerous hikers and mountain bikers. Many tour operators  organize day trips to Hatta from Dubai. Hatta Wadi Hub also offers a wide range of outdoor activities, including waterslides, zorbing and mountain biking.


Sports in Dubai

Dubai is one of the leading centers for sporting events in the Middle East and beyond. Every year, world-class competitions are held here in various sports – tennis, golf, rugby, horse racing, etc. The Al Qudra cycling track  is very popular among both beginner cyclists and professionals. There are rest points along the track, and Trek UAE bike rental is located nearby. In addition, it offers stunning views of the city skyscrapers in the distance.

At Dubai Autodrome, you can drive in an Audi TT, the legendary Audi R8 V10 or a rally car. There is a karting center at the autodrome, where you can compete with friends in speed and go through 17 sharp turns.


Indoor entertainment

When summer is literally in full swing, Dubai has plenty of fun indoor activities to do, from skydiving to skiing to diving in a shark tank. Ski Dubai at the Mall of the Emirates invites everyone to ski, snowboard or ride in a giant zorb ball down the snowy slopes. In addition, real penguins live here!

The iFly attraction at the City Center Mirdif shopping center provides  an opportunity to get amazing emotions from skydiving. You will be offered to fly in a vertical wind tunnel, dressed in a special suit and goggles. Updrafts of air, moving at high speed, will keep you on weight, allowing you to experience the feeling of free fall.

At the Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo in Dubai Mall, everyone can dive to the bottom of the aquarium in a special cage and swim with sharks. You will have the opportunity to watch predators feed and learn more about their role in the ocean ecosystem. The dive session lasts 30 minutes.

Dubai will not leave anyone indifferent. Having been here, you will get a lot of positive emotions and impressions that you can share with your surroundings.
