Sporting Activities


There are plenty of activities to get involved in, whether you want to sit back and enjoy watching your favorite sport, or wish to participate
in a thrilling activity for those exciting adrenaline rushes, then Dubai has the answer.


.Camel Racing

This traditional sport has been renewed with much enthusiasm in recent years. Informal desert tracks, and now quite a few official ones have been assigned for this purpose. Camel races are usually held every Thursday, Friday, Sunday and occasionally on Monday mornings, providing visitors with a unique opportunity to observe local Emiratis in harmony with their surroundings. Camel racing season begins in October.



Hire a boat and go deep sea fishing to get some prize catches like the hammer, barracuda, shark and sailfish. The best fishing period is from October through April, although there are still some catches that you can get during the summer months such as the Sailfish and Queen fish. Stop your boat over a reef or wreck if you wish to catch all kinds of small and medium fish.


..Horse Racing

The sport of kings has rapidly become Dubai's most popular spectator event, attracting crowds of more than 15,000. Race meetings are held weekly during the cooler months at one of the UAE's four race courses. Dubai Racing Club situated at the Naad Al Sheba is the city’s largest and most spectacular track and home to the Dubai World Cup - the sport's richest horse race. Horse rides through the desert are organized regularly and Dubai also has a riding association for the disabled.


..Hot Air Ballooning

Glide gently in a hot air balloon over giant sand dunes, wandering camels, oasis and rugged mountains, while you marvel at breathtaking views of the sunrise and its magical effect on the desert vistas.


..Auto Sports

The Dubai Autodrome is the region's first fully integrated motorsports facility. The complex, a part of the Union Properties Motor city development, not only includes an FIA sanctioned 5.39km circuit, which offers six different configurations, but also incorporates a Race & D riving school and a CIK approved Karting track.


.Go Karting

Dubai has the first Middle East fully-equipped 40,000 sq. ft air-conditioned indoor go-kart facility at Formula One. Outdoors, an active go-karting fraternity races regularly at the track beside the Jebel Ali Hotel. Visitors can enjoy this sport during the months of Oct-May.
