32 things to do outside in Dubai

Make the most of the great outdoors before summer settles

It’s that time again – when the cold water tap starts running hot, the breeze begins to feel warm and the walk to the Metro leaves you just a little bit too sweaty. Temperatures are rising in Dubai, but before we reach that final indicator that the mercury has risen to the point of silly (that’s steamed-up sunglasses and smartphone screens, to those of you heading into their first UAE summer), there’s still time to make the most of the emirate’s best outdoor propositions. These currently balmy mid-30°C days are ripe for sipping mixed drinks on the beach, gliding around the Palm or even joining in a bungee competition if your leanings are rather more extreme. Here, we reveal Dubai’s best and newest al fresco experiences to check off your list before the annual meltfest commences.
