Visit the spot for mountain scenery and kayaking

Kayaking at Hatta Dubai
A quick drive from Hatta Fort Hotel and popular outdoor activity centre Hatta Wadi Hub, Hatta Dam provides a calm respite from the buzzing city of Dubai. Surrounded by mountains and filled with stunning turquoise water, it’s a stark contrast to the desert sands you’ll pass en route to Hatta. Kayak on the waters, drive your car along the dam, hike between photo stops and spend some time soaking up the natural beauty of the mountainous area.

Picnic with a view in Hatta's rolling hills

Hatta Hill Park
Hatta Hill Park is an elevated oasis and lush green space in the exclave town of Hatta – just a short drive from the region's heritage village. The 63,915sqm park is located in the foothills of the Hajar Mountains and is a popular spot for picnics and barbecues. It also includes running tracks, sports fields and a children’s playing field.

Taste nature's "amber nectar" and learn about bees

Hatta Honey Bee Garden in Dubai

Surrounded by the craggy mountains of Hatta and an abundance of native flora and fauna, Hatta Honey Bee Discovery Centre is a unique attraction that highlights the importance of bees to our environment. Donned in a bee suit and protective gear, visitors can get close to one of 300 hives filled with thousands of honey bees, or simply learn more about these fascinating creatures at the Bee Museum.


Witness the joyous creativity of Dubai's burgeoning art scene

Alserkal Avenue in Dubai

Once an industrial area in the centre of Dubai, Alserkal Avenue now comprises around 40 warehouses, converted into galleries, dance studios, artisanal cafes and more. The neighbourhood has nurtured a culture of creativity and is now one of the region’s leading art hubs. Since its humble beginnings as a standalone gallery in 2008, word caught on and similar concepts soon moved into the area. Popular spots include arthouse theatre Cinema Akil, the hipster-inspired Nightjar Coffee and Leila Heller Gallery.


Savour elevated dining at Burj Al Arab

Al Muntaha
The food and views at Al Muntaha located on the 27th floor of the iconic Burj Al Arab are both top-notch – and live up to its name which means 'the ultimate'. Chef Saverio Sbaragli ensures his masterful touch is visible in every dish, with each offering being plated perfectly to take your fine dining experience to the next level. The warm salad with truffle is delicious, as is the king crab tartlet. And if you are in the mood for flavours of the sea, sample the blue lobster or sea bass with artichokes and aromatic herbs.
