Have Fun at Aquaventure Waterpark

Located in Atlantis, The Palm, Aquaventure Waterpark can be easily accessed from family-friendly properties like Anantara Downtown Dubai Hotel. Expect plenty of action-packed excitement at the largest waterpark in the world home to more than 105 attractions, slides and more. Top allures include body slides like the Leap of Faith, the Raging Rapids and Odyssey of Terror, the tallest waterslide on the planet!

Spend Time at Beaches & the Desert

No getaway would be complete without soaking up the sun and playing on the shore at the beaches to be found here. A popular place for families would be Jumeirah Beach Park which has play areas for kids and bars for parents! You can even head off on a desert safari in a four-wheel-drive vehicle amidst a sea of sand for some adrenaline-charged dune bashing while dining at a Bedouin-style camp is not to be missed either.

Experience a Snow Day at Ski Dubai

While you may not usually associate Dubai as being a place to enjoy snow, this will all change when you visit the winter wonderland created within Ski Dubai! One of the best family attractions in Dubai, this site can be found at the Mall of the Emirates and offers snow-covered indoor slopes where parents and kids can go skiing or snowboarding. What’s more, it also offers penguin encounters that young ones are bound to love.
