3 Family Friendly Activities in Dubai

We often associate holidays in Dubai with lavish hotels and an escape for couples. Perhaps lesser talked about is just how much Dubai has to offer families looking for a fun filled and sun filled holiday destination.

So here are three things you can do on a family holiday in Dubai.

Dubai Aquarium

Dubai Mall is home to an impressively large aquarium, housing some 33,000 marine animals. The kids are bound to be mesmerized by the world’s largest collection of tiger sharks and even Mum and Dad will be entertained by the 48 metre long under water tunnel. This tunnel offers visitors to the aquarium a sub-aquatic view of rays and sharks.

Aquaventure Water Park

Dubai is hot and sunny, and such beautiful weather calls for a pool to cool off in. Of course, you could opt for a quiet little bog standard pool. Alternatively, you and your whole family could head to Aquaventure water park to sample some of the world’s most thrilling water rides. Aquaventure water park is absolutely amazing and is the perfect spot in the sun for adrenalin seeking grown ups and kids alike.

If you’re feeling particularly brave, you could take the plunge and tackle the terrifying “Leap of Faith.”

A bit of Skiing?

You might not automatically associate sunny, hot Dubai with ski-ing. Why would you!?

But Dubai is home to Ski Dubai, a fantastic indoor ski and snow adventure location with artificial snow inside. So if you need a break from the sun or fancy a little change from your sunbathing days on holiday, get the family down here. You can ski, sledge, snowboard or even just enjoy a bit of a snowball fight. Whatever activity you decide you fancy, the whole family can have fun here.

Dubai is a Family Friendly Destination

We’ve highlighted just 3 family friendly activities in Dubai. But in truth, there are dozens of things the whole family can enjoy in Dubai. Kidzania, Sega Republic, swimming with dolphins or taking in the view from the world’s tallest building are just a sample of the others.

The much loved holiday destination is increasingly appealing to families thanks to its spacious and notoriously indulgent accommodation and the year round activity friendly weather perfect for sun seeking holidaymakers.

The hot weather of Dubai has also made the destination attractive to those who might previously have visited Sharm el Sheikh in the wake of flights no longer flying to that destination. And it’s appealing to families who perhaps want a change from the usual destinations they visit.

With more theme parks and family friendly attractions under construction as we speak, Dubai’s appeal to families is only going to increase in coming years. So if you want to treat your family to a fun filled and sunny escape, you can get some fantastic Dubai holiday deals here.

So get browsing, get booking and head off to the United Arab Emirates to enjoy the family trip of a lifetime in beautiful Dubai.
