Adventures & Activities
Explore our Palm Island resort and discover the best of Dubai
Your Dubai Adventure
Our carefully curated excursions will intrigue and delight with desert treks and historical tours revealing the heart of Dubai. On resort, challenge your family and friends to a good-natured game of beach volleyball, partner up for a game of doubles on our tennis courts, or try your hand at water skiing and windsurfing. Golfers won’t be able to resist visiting some of the region’s celebrated courses for a round – or three.
Explore desert dunes
A once-in-a-lifetime Arabian adventure
Our desert safari will take your breath away. Experience the sands from above in a hot air balloon ride, or join a traditional camel caravan, retracing the steps of the ancient Bedouins through the mighty dunes. As the sun goes down, settle in by the fire to enjoy traditional mezze and music, before returning to the city lights.

Soak up Dubai’s rich history, exploring the streets of the city’s heritage districts in our chauffeured classic car. O
Sail, fish and kayak in the Arabian Gulf
Push off from our sheltered stretch of private beach to enjoy complimentary sea-kayaking, windsurfing, and miniature catamaran sailing. Those wanting to explore further can reserve a private deep-sea fishing cruise, for an entire day spent on the calm water of the Arabian Gulf. Enjoy superb, year-round fishing, with anglers likely to be rewarded with catches of barracuda, king mackerel and grouper.
Splash out at Aquaventure Waterpark
Ride the region’s most impressive water-slides, float along more than two kilometres of river rapids, explore The Lost Chambers Aquarium and have up-close animal encounters at Dolphin Bay and Sea Lion Point at Aquaventure Waterpark. The UAE’s top marine experience also features a dedicated splash-pad for the little ones, and aqua zip-lines for the bigger kids.
