There is luxury to be found amid the dust at this far-out stop

1 Jebel Ali Golf Resort and Spa: You’ll have to jump in a taxi from the Jebel Ali metro stop to reach this oasis amid the dusty no-man’s land of
Jebel Ali. But the golf resort’s vast stretches of greenery, large refreshing outdoor pool and award-winning spa make it well worth the trip. There’s also a wide range of water sports on offer, including waterskiing, windsurfing and kayaking. But no matter what you do here, be sure to dine at Signatures (it was highly commended in this year’s Time Out Awards).

2 Seaplane flights: Sightseeing on a tour bus is so last season. The Jebel Ali Golf Resort and Spa offers an aerial view of the Dubai coastline with Seawings: a seaplane that takes off and lands in the Jebel Ali Marina. From 15,000ft up, travellers get to view The Palm, The World and the Burj Dubai. We heartily recommend.

3 Jebel Ali Golf Course: The ‘Golf’ part of the Jebel Ali Golf Resort and Spa is an impressive championship-standard, nine-hole par-36 course. It’s for professional or trained golfers only, although beginners can learn at the Golf Academy offered at the course.

4 Dubai Motocross Club: What better use for the dirt and dust in Jebel Ali than to kick it up on two wheels? The Dubai Motocross Club has two tracks: the trickier of the two, the Senior Track, has a selection of man-made tabletops, step ups, whoops, drop-offs, rhythm sections and doubles (whatever all those may be), and the Junior Track is for, well, juniors. Non-members can use the tracks to practise on, but all riders must obtain an FIM motorcycling licence.

5 Shooting range: For those of you that have a passion for shooting (hopefully only under the watchful eyes of instructors), the Jebel Ali International Shooting Club, part of the Golf Resort & Spa, provides professional coaching in clay pigeon shooting and range shooting. If it’s bows that get you all a-quiver, the club also offers an impressive 5,000 sq m archery range, too.
