Get Out On The Water At Hatta Dam

The views at the dam are nothing short of breath-taking. Kayaking is super popular here, and a perfect way to put yourself in the middle of all that natural splendor. You can also find several other types of boats for rent like yellow boats, pedalos, donut boats, and water bikes which can accommodate more than one passenger.

Get Cultural At The Hatta Heritage Village

Take a step back in time with a visit to this historical site. Here you’ll be able to get a taste of early life in one of Dubai’s ancient villages. The site actually dates back around 3.000 years and offers the chance to see authentic and original documents, artifacts, and more. Special events are sometimes held here as well, especially on National Day.
