5 action packed things to do in Dubai for Adventure seekers

Dubai

While many people know Dubai as being the business capital of the United Arab Emirates and world-renowned for its luxurious hotels and shopping malls, well it's also a bit of a hub for those adventure seekers out there and in this blog post I'm going to show you the best activities that's on offer for those adrenalin junkies from sky diving to surfing to trying to most exotic foodie dishes, you can do it all in Dubai along with plenty of sunshine to boot. 

1. Sky Dive over the Iconic Palm

This is one for the extreme adrenaline junkies out there and there are many places you can brave a skydive but taking the plunge over the breath-taking Palm Jumeirah Island. You also don't need any experience to go skydiving in The Palm dropzone as you can fly tandem with an experienced instructor. This is something you won't forget in a long time that is for sure.

2. Go Skateboarding at a world-class skatepark

XDubai Skatepark really takes park design to another level, this 3.100 sqm skatepark has quickly become renowned for its fantastic facilities which are suitable for all levels from beginners to pros with 29 different features from a large street section to the insane XBowl. XDubai is also set next to Kite beach and has a large space for skate events and often hosts skate jams, competitions and pro workshops. 

3. Eat with a View

Dubai is known for its world-class restaurants and eateries but if you're looking to add a touch of adventure to your date then there are plenty of options including Dinner in the Sky, which is on the Forbes list of 10 most unusual restaurants and with one of the most impressive views. You need to have a head for heights to eat here as the table is suspended by crane at 50 meters high, taking in the Dubai skyline, you can book a place this exclusive place using this website. If you like the idea of a view minus the crane than At.mosphere is another very special restaurant and takes the spot of being the worlds tallest restaurant located on the 122nd floor of the Burj Khalifa.

4. Go surfing Dubai style

Yes you can go surfing in Dubai, something I was surprised to hear when I first found out but it's true. It is seasonal however with the best chance of waves happening between October and April with water temperatures warm all year round and no need for a wetsuit (although wearing a rash vest & boardies is essential as covering up in Dubai is important). If you happen to be there off-season or just want guaranteed waves then they have a really cool artificial wave pool at WADI Adventure, which also offers wakeboarding, rafting and kayaking.  

5. Do a Desert Safari

It would be a shame not to take advantage of Dubai's location and the surrounding Desert so why not opt for a hair raising dune buggy adventure? Arabian Adventures offers exciting guided dune buggy drives across the dunes where you can take the driver's seat or if you prefer you can take it all in from the passenger side. This is a great adrenaline-pumping activity that can be done all year round.

While many people are happy with relaxing on the beach and soaking up the sun, others want to get their blood pumping, wether that may come in the form of trying a new sport, taking in the view from the highest building or eating 50 meters up, it can all be done in Dubai, so keep this in mind if your planning to visit in the future.

  1. I had no idea you could do all of these adventurous things in Dubai! I'm too much of a scaredy-cat to go skydiving, but Dinner in the Sky looks like such a fun and unique experience (as long as you don't drop your fork)! I'm definitely trying this if I ever visit Dubai.
