Wild Wadi is the most iconic theme park in the city, with death-defying slides, wave pools, and surf simulators. For a truly unique experience, take a drive out to the majestic red sand dunes of Dubai and go off-roading. You can also take advantage of the city's coastline and enjoy water sports like paddleboarding, kayaking, and scuba diving.
If you're looking for something more thrilling, try skydiving over the Palm Islands or kitesurfing in the Persian Gulf. And don't forget to check out the theme parks like Motiongate, Bollywood Parks, Legoland Dubai, and Legoland Water Parks. Finally, if you're looking for a more tranquil experience, head to Hatta for cycling, hiking, and kayaking around Lake Hatta. No matter what kind of outdoor activity you're looking for, Dubai has something for everyone.
