Kid-Friendly Activities in Dubai

Dubai is a city that makes for an amazing family holiday. With its unique mix of architecture, beaches, and desert scenes, it offers something special for all ages. There are plenty of activities in Dubai to keep everyone entertained! Despite the heat of the summer, Dubai has an array of options to keep your children entertained no matter the time of year. I have compiled a list of some of my favorite kid-friendly activities in Dubai that are the perfect way for you to spend some quality time with your little ones.

Visit the Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo

The Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo offer world-class attractions where visitors of all ages can explore aquatic life. This remarkable place allows you to dive with sea creatures right in the Dubai Mall. Here you will be mesmerized by a variety of species and even have a chance to possibly see some mermaids. Moreover, there is an enclosed walk-through tunnel where you can see rare sea creatures & massive sharks. Those lucky enough to take part in this experience enjoy an outing that combines fun, education, and makes truly memorable moments.

Head to the Beach

There are plenty of beautiful public beaches along the coast of Dubai. Many of these beaches offer free access and are an excellent outing for families. Here you can go for a swim, jump on a jet ski, attempt to climb some floating “mountains”, take a walk, build a sandcastle, or simply soak up some rays. I personally enjoy Al Sufouh Beach. It is a bit more secluded and exceptionally clean. There is parking readily available right on the beach, so you don’t have to trek all of your stuff a long way (which is extremely important when having to carry the sand toys, bags, towels, snacks, drinks, chairs, etc).

Visit a Park: Zabeel Park or Jumeirah Beach Park 

If you’re looking for a great way to entertain your children without breaking the bank, visit one of Dubai’s parks. Zabeel park, located in the heart of Dubai, is a paradise filled with lush greenery and endless play areas. Here you can find barbeque areas, numerous walking paths, a variety of playgrounds, snack stands, and bicycles to rent. Meanwhile, Jumeirah Beach Park is perfect for those days when you just want some relaxation; take a picnic blanket and bask in the sun as your little ones explore their surroundings, jump on playground equipment or cycle around the park. In addition, both locations offer budget-friendly cafes and refreshments in case you, or your children, need a little ‘pick-me-up’.

Visit Museums: Museum of Islamic Art or The Heritage Village

Additionally, you can visit the museum of Islamic Art or the Heritage Village. People often forget that Dubai is home to some great museum experiences. Visiting one of these places can be an exciting educational experience, even for your older children. Both museums feature interactive activities and inviting exhibits. Many museum trips can even be free, or very affordable.

Visit The Ripe Market or Other Outdoor Markets

Another great kid-friendly option is to visit The Ripe Market or one of the other outdoor markets in Dubai. Shopping at these outdoor markets offers you a chance to get quality goods at affordable prices. The Ripe Market is the perfect place to take your children on a Saturday morning. Here your children can play on the large playground, touch an iguana, feed some baby bunnies, and enjoy delicious food from local food trucks.

Ski Down a Massive Indoor Slope

The Mall of the Emirates is a great place to take your family for a day of fun and snow-filled activities. Their massive indoor ski slope and snow playground can provide your little ones with a unique winter experience no matter what time of year it is. Kids can enjoy plenty of different games and activities, such as skiing, sledding, tobogganing, snowball fights, and even tubing slides. An escape to this indoor winter wonderland is sure to be an unforgettable experience that your kids will love!

In conclusion, Dubai has many amazing wonders for you and your family to explore. The city is full of activities that are excellent for a variety of ages. Whether you are looking to visit an outdoor market for some shopping, or spend a relaxing day on the beach, Dubai has something for everyone.
