  • The Museum parking area and nearby public parking areas are available (relatively few)
  • Do not self drive to museums and heritage sites as they are located in crowded old city areas and parking is a scarcity there; you are rather advised to use public transport.
  • Wear easy to slip in and out footwear as many places would need you to remove your footwear.

It is October and it is still summer time in Dubai even though the temperatures might be dropping ever so slightly each day, we can enjoy a few more weeks by the beach. And time at the beach could be to work on your tan, to flaunt the gym workouts you have been working on, brunching and partying at the weekends or just relaxing, having a picnic or reading a book or two.

However all these ideas aside we have one activity that can combines could mean you could work on your tan, workout and have fun at the same time, plus it is addictive.

Living or visiting Dubai during the summer gives you the ideal opportunity to check out the countless beaches on offer. We are blessed to be just by the breath-taking Arabian ocean so a trip to the beach needs to be on your list and so should kite surfing.

You might have heard that is an extreme water sport, and yes it is as it provides exhilaration and freedom once you get the hang of it but it is a lot of fun more than anything else.

There are many instructors in Dubai and a fairly large group of surfers living in Dubai so the technology and equipment to enjoy the sport is very accessible not to mention affordable. It is also a good sport to experience with your friends, family and even kids.

There are many websites that provide information on kitesurfing so reading up about it, getting advice or arranging classes are easy. Once you are armed with information, here are some beaches you could head to, to see what the hype is all about.

Some beaches that you can try out the sport include Jebel Ali Beach located south of the Jebel Ali Hotel. The hotel has a water sports club that provide classes and equipment rental.

Meanwhile Black Palace Beach is a large open beach on Umm Suqeim road, however Kite Beach on the same road is the most popular and gets very crowded. A good location to go with your family would be the Sunset Beach, it has a good mix of swimmers and other water sports users so you can enjoy a full day out at this beach. If you live more towards Sharjah, then we suggest Mamzar Beach.

Some of the schools we suggest include the Surf House, where you can try kite surfing surfaris, yoga, shop and much more. Get in touch on info@surfingdubai.com, +971 50 5043020 or visit www.surfingdubai.com.

Another school to try out if DuKite, operating since 2005 with IKO certification. For more information call them on +971-50-7586992 (International) and 050-7586992 (Local), email info@dukite.com or visit www.dukite.com.

There are various shops where you can purchase your gear such as Seayou (www.seayou.ae, +971 4 420 6100) and WaterCooled UAE (www.watercooleddubai.com + + 971 4 3749119).

So head to the beach this Summer and make sure you try out Kite surfing, it might just be the activity you have been looking for.
