Dubai is known for its towering skyscrapers, luxurious hotels, and endless shopping opportunities, but did you know that the city is also home to some stunning natural wonders? From the Hatta Dam to the Wadi Shab, Dubai’s waterfalls offer a chance to escape the city’s hustle and bustle and immerse yourself in the beauty of the outdoors.
The Hatta Dam is located just over an hour’s drive from the city center and offers a range of outdoor activities for visitors. The dam itself is an impressive feat of engineering, standing at 50 meters tall and 400 meters wide, but it’s the waterfall that attracts many visitors. The waterfall flows from the dam and into the Hatta Wadi Hubb, a man-made lake surrounded by picturesque mountains. Visitors can take a dip in the crystal-clear waters, go stand-up paddling or kayaking, or simply relax on the sandy shores.
