5 Simple Outdoor Activities for Couples in Dubai
So you have explored all the malls, restaurants, cinemas and bars in Dubai, care to try something new with your significant other this weekend? It's always nice to remember that outdoor activities can be an option too. Check out below our top 5 outdoor activities you can do this weekend.
1- A Romantic Picnic in One of the Dubai Parks
Well even if Safa Park remains one of the top Dubai, some of the lesser known ones could also be a quite pleasant experience. Take for example the lovely Al Barsha Park. It has a lake, fountains and a view that makes it a perfect place for a romantic picnic lunch especially during the cooler weekend evenings.
Another one we love to go during the week or late evening to escape from the heat is Creek Park. It has an amazing view of the cityscape that lights up beautifully in the evening.
2- Try Out Sea Paddling
This is actually a very tricky activity. Very few are actually strong enough to do sea paddling alone. So you'll most probably need your other half to help you in trying out this fun and challenging sport.
In any case, the reason we love this activity it's because its a fun workout you can do together. Just try to paddle back instead of swimming among the jelly fish! Yes we had to once, luckily we didn't get stung!
3- Horse riding for a couple of hours
Frankly speaking, who of us has never dreamed of being the charming prince riding on a white horse to save his significant other from broing Dubai weekend routines.
4- Go for the desert experience
As a local I love our deserts because they are quiet, relaxing, and far away from the modern hustle and bustle. Take your other half to watch an amazing sun rise or sun set in the desert, they will remember it for a while.
5- Visit the UAE mountains
We actually do have mountains in the UAE. Not speaking about the ones in Oman ones (we love them too), but about the ones you'll find between Sharjah and Ras Al Khaimah.
Show your significant other a breathtaking view of the Hajjar Mountains and take her a on a drive through the Wadis. It will get your heart beating and give you a feel of UAE's serene nature!
