Top Tips for visiting Dubai as a couple

You may not think of Dubai as a traditional couples destination, but there’s so much to do if it’s the two of you. Here are our top tips for your trip to Dubai.

1. Date days, as well as date nights

Make the most of the days, as well as the nights, together. A pocket-friendly day out at Dubai Miracle Garden could see your love blossom among the topiary and floral displays – providing the picture perfect backdrop for the ‘Gram.

Take your love to new heights and splurge on a skydive in Dubai. A thrilling jump over The Palm Jumeirah will get the adrenaline pumping and provide an experience like no-other.

Pack a picnic and head to one of Dubai’s many beaches for a romantic afternoon enjoying sweet treats beside the sea. Stay a little longer and enjoy the sun setting over the Arabian Gulf, painting the sky in red.

2. 'Take your breathe away’ views

Breathtaking views of Dubai are aplenty around the city, and into the desert.

The best way to view The Palm, is from above. If you’re not quite ready to plunge out of a plane, head to The View at The Palm, where you can immerse yourself in 360 degree views, 240 metres above the world-famous landmark.

For glistening views of the Downtown Dubai skyline, take a sunset stroll along The Viewing Point at Dubai Creek Harbour – and best of all it’s free! A great place to reflect on your trip to Dubai above the Creek waters.

For an alternative view of Dubai, head out to sea with a shared or private yacht tour from Dubai Marina. You’ll sail through the Marina waters amongst the towering skyscrapers, and pass by Dubai’s iconic sights like the Atlantis The Palm, Burj Al Arab and Bluewaters Island.

3. A beach lovers paradise

Any memorable romantic trip to the Dubai has to include time spent on the beach. From private hotel resort beaches, to public beaches packed with adventurous activities.

Take to the waves by sharing a kayak or challenge each other to stand-up paddleboarding together at Kite Beach, Jumeirah. Or simply soak up the rays on the golden sands, toasting each other with a drink in hand on the sands of Palm West Beach.

4. Keep PDAs for home

Whilst Dubai offers an array of activities for couples to celebrate love, it’s important to note the UAE is a Muslim country and the culture may differ from your home town. Dubai is a progressive city, but understand local laws and customs are still in place. Respect the traditions by keeping public displays of affection to a minimum, and kissing and holding hands are considered inappropriate.
