If you want sun, sand and fun all year round nowhere quite does holidays like Dubai. Blending Middle Eastern traditions with endless sunshine, beach life and amazing hotels, holidays in Dubai are popular with kids, parents and couples looking for a getaway without the long flights. The golden beaches are sheltered and safe for children and the world-famous city-sized malls can keep any shopaholics happy. Dubai is also home to huge waterparks, desert safari fun and amazing restaurants and spas. Despite its glitz and glamour, this world-famous resort is also brimming with activities that are fit for the whole family. So, if you’re looking for a fun-loving holiday under blue skies, Dubai holidays tick all boxes.

The Burj Khalifa

If you can handle heights, take an elevator to the 124th floor of Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa. This spectacular skyscraper stands at a whopping 2,723 ft. making it the tallest building in the world, and its sights from the observation deck stretch for miles. To make the most of your time inside this Dubai landmark, why not watch the famous dancing fountain show from the observation deck, while enjoying panoramic views of the Burj Khalifa Lake?

Life’s a party at Dubai beach

The crystal-clear waters of the Arabian Gulf are great fun for everyone to make a splash. Jumeirah Beach is abuzz with a variety of shops, beachside cafes and BBQs and if you’re feeling active, Kite Beach is where you’ll find world-class watersports. Whether you sunbathe on the sand or watch your kids whiz through the water, Dubai’s coast is calling. If sun, sea and surf don’t tire them out, take your tots to Atlantis Aquaventure Waterpark nearby for an action-packed day out!

The Dubai Mall

Dubai is the perfect place for those who like to hit the shops on holidays. You’ll be spoilt for choice as you step into The Dubai Mall, the largest shopping centre in the world. Located at the foot of the Burj Khalifa, this entertainment and leisure destination even has an Aquarium and an Ice Rink among its 1,200 shops, so the kids can tag along too.

Dubai Desert Safari

If soaring over Saharan sand dunes sounds like it’s up your street, travel 20-60 minutes from Downtown Dubai and embark on a Desert Safari! Take a hot air balloon ride above the dunes, hop into a 4x4 SUV and take a daring drive over the dunes or soaking up the scenery as the sun sets. Try sand boarding or swap the car for a camel ride! Once you reach your desert camp, enjoy a belly dancing performance around a campfire as you savour local delicacies. If you like heights, book a hot air balloon trip and experience breath-taking views of the desert from up above.
