With it being women’s month, we looked to our founders for some inspiration and insights on what kids activities in Dubai they love. Well, them and their kids of course! This week we spoke with co-founder Simona and got 9 activities that her kids absolutely love.
Stay tuned to QiDZ to see more of our own founders’ favorite kids activities in Dubai. Plus be sure to check out QiDZ for all things women this month.
Palm West Beach
West Beach on The Palm is a fairly new spot that we found and what a spot it is! My daughter absolutely loves it and so do we, there’s so much open space for her to scoot and us to ride bikes! Another great thing is that it is dog friendly, so we can really bring the whole family and have the best day.
There are restaurants around too, the beach and fountains that the kids love to play in. It’s a fantastic spot and with the weather getting warmer the water feature is really a favorite.
Dubai Garden Glow
Here’s one of our favorite kids activities in Dubai! Dubai Garden Glow is always a winner in our books. The dinosaurs, the magic park, the 3D art and of course all the lights are really a fantastic sight. We love to take visitors too because they are always quite amazed by it all.
The evenings are still pleasant so we actually go quite often to enjoy the outdoors and enjoy an evening out with the family!
Dubai Ice Rink
This is one activity that we end up doing every time we head to the Dubai Mall! It’s almost an unwritten rule that the kids want to go ice-skating. It’s always a fun time and it’s great to take a break from walking around the mall to…glide around it. Plus there are amazing penguins to help the little ones who aren’t too confident with their skating just yet.
The Green Planet
Ah The Green Planet! Here’s another one of our absolute favorite kids activities in Dubai. It’s quite an incredible place to visit – with the exotic animals and flora, even I’m amazed when we walk through. My daughter absolutely loves the creepy crawlies around Green Planet – me…not so much.
There is so much for kids to learn and so many opportunities for them to interact with the animals around. The best part is bumping into the resident sloth who is taking a nap most of the time.
The Lost Chambers Aquarium
Located in Atlantis, The Lost Chambers Aquarium is a gem to visit with the kids! Especially if you have visitors in town and want to really wow them with Dubai’s amazing attractions.
A day on the Palm always excites the family as there’s so much fun to be had. Did we mention West Beach is on the Palm as well? And of course the Pointe! Where we have plenty of fun too.
Aventura is one of he best places to go in Dubai if you and the family love outdoor adventures. Build in the midst of a Ghaf forest, there are over 80 challenges that you and the family can enjoy. Our personal favorite is the Tarzan leap – it is a little daunting but the rush you get from it while you’re swinging is incredible! There are lots of ziplines around too.
Don’t worry about the little ones because there are mini-kids circuits, perfect for the little ones.
One of the most beautiful and popular beaches in Dubai, with a wide variety of cafes, restaurants and things to keep the kids active and entertained. There are showers and toilets available, as well as the possibility of renting an umbrella, towel, and beach lounge chairs. And for the more active ones, Kite Surf School Dubai provides kayak rental and kite-surf lessons daily, from 7 am!
Also, there are a wide range of fun attractions such as Dom Tak a family outdoor trampoline, Splash ’n’ Party, beach volleyball, and Wire World Adventure Parks as well as XPark Junior for the younger kids and a skate park right next door.
We spent the day in Sharjah one weekend and we had to visit the infamous Rain Room. You are directed to navigate intuitively and carefully through the dark underground space in order to protect yourselves from the downpour. Your movements trigger motion sensors that pause the rainfall when movements are detected.
It was quite a stunning experience! Find out more on QiDZ.
Sharjah Science Museum
This is an activity that we had recommended to us and when we went we fell in love! The museum offers a distinctive entertainment experience for the whole family in a safe, motivational and educational atmosphere. The kids really enjoyed it and it was a fun environment to learn about science.
