Stuck for ideas? Mums and dads, we got you

We’re lucky to be living in one of the world’s most kid-friendly cities, but sometimes having so much to do can leave you wondering. Here are some of our Dubai favourites:

1. La Mer

A beachfront destination with so much you can do, this buzzing spot is a favourite among families. You can head to the beach, eat at some of the best restaurants in town or let kids be kids at Hawa Hawa, a massive outdoor trampoline park.

2. Xpark Jr.

A natural playscape, there’s plenty of room for kids to roam free at this park. With tons of water-based play, hideouts and wooden forts, little ones will experience nature – and even make friends with a few friendly animals at XPark Jr.

3. OliOli

A kids’ museum, there’s no “don’t touch” at this Al Quoz edutainment centre. There are galleries filled with interactive fun, waiting to be explored by curious hands and minds.


4. The Green Planet

Flora, fauna and everything in between make this City Walk-based ecosystem a must-visit. There are so many interesting creatures to see and it’s a lovely break for the whole family from the summer heat, too.

5. Kite Beach

One of Dubai’s favourite public beaches among families, you’ll get much more than sandy toes at this one. There are plenty of options for yummy food, water sports and activities for you and the kids to take part in together.

6. The JBR

Another public beach we love. Sun, sand and lots of cool mums, dads and kids swimming, playing, splashing about at the Splash Pad – and even riding camels into the sunset.

7. Dubai Miracle Garden

From water-spraying elephants to Disney’s most famous characters, everything is made of flowers at this world of wonder. Miracle Garden is great for magnificent family photos and lots of laughs.

8. Global Village

Don’t miss this around-the-world display of culture from every corner of the world. There’s dancing, food, shopping and play at this glowing Dubai destination.


9. The Dubai Mall

From the Dubai Aquarium to the Ice Rink, this massive mall is about so much more than just the shopping. Plus, kids can live in the adult world at KidZania or jump into an alternative universe at VR Park.

10. City Walk

Happy vibes all the way make this entertainment hub one for this list. Kids can do everything from riding little bear bikes to visiting Barney and Angelina Ballerina at Mattel Play! Town.
