12 Things To Do Outdoors To Enjoy The Spring Weather

March 08, 2021 Posted by: Kidzapp Team Kids Activities


It's peak "outdoors weather" in the UAE, and some fresh-air frolics are just what the doctor ordered! 

We know that you and the kiddos are looking for a (literal) change of scenery from the usual living room-bedroom-kitchen combo, so we've lined up some popular activities that will help take advantage of the early spring weather. From water parks and beaches, to farms and outdoor museums - whatever gets you and the kiddos going, we've got you covered. 

1. Aquaventure Waterpark

What's a water park if not Aquaventure at Atlantis, The Palm? This iconic location promises you and the kiddos a world of excitement more ways than one. For the thrill-seekers they've got 30 slides and attractions, if you're looking to wind down then you can lounge on Dubai’s longest Lazy River, or relax on 500m of private beach. Got little ones? No problem, because Splashers Island was designed with tots in mind. And for a truly unique experience, we recommend you get up close and personal with the dolphins, sea lions, sharks and stingrays.
