Dubai Holidays

Holidays in Dubai are unique: this is among the world's most amazing spots. Ever-changing yet stable, it offers just about every attraction you can imagine and plenty you can't.

Booking with SunSearch Holidays will help you with holiday quotes and late deals you'll love – get in touch now!

Dubai possesses some of the planet's finest beaches. The star is Jumeirah Beach, a stupendous stretch of white sand that's soft beneath your feet. It's partly reserved for guests at Dubai's ultra-luxury hotels, like the amazing seven-star Burj al Arab which offers all-inclusive water sports package options. However, the Jumeirah Beach Park is public and great for relaxing. Given Dubai's hot weather, it's particularly popular in the evening; barbecues are everywhere, and there are plenty of cafés if you don't want to cook.

Dubai holidays should take in some of Downtown Dubai's enormous skyscrapers, including the world's tallest building, the 830-metre Burj Khalifa. From its astounding open-air 124th-floor observation deck, on clear days you can see Iran! There's another iconic attraction at ground level: the spectacular Dubai Fountains. This astonishing 270-metre choreographed system is illuminated by over 6,000 lights as it hurls 80,000 litres of water into the air. There are regular displays set to both Arab and Western music, and they shouldn't be missed.

The iconic, man-made Palm, an island which houses exclusive accommodation, features the Atlantis Hotel on the Palm. Devoted to luxury, it has everything from whirlpool baths to floor-length windows. You can choose from a staggering 23 restaurants, or relax at the hotel's own water park, gym or spa. Unsurprisingly for this hot part of the world, water parks are extremely popular in Dubai, so even if you're not staying in a seven-star hotel there'll be one nearby. Many have special offers at times; check local reviews.

Dubai's romantic setting makes it a superb honeymoon destination, and couples can shop somewhere special: the Dubai Mall. Among the world's largest, this boasts 1,200 stores selling everything from exquisite jewellery to the latest fashions hot off the Paris catwalks. Remember that Dubai is an Islamic country, albeit a fairly relaxed one, so dress modestly away from the beach. Don't expect to find alcoholic drinks everywhere, either: they are available, but aren't cheap: only certain outlets are licensed to sell them. The drinking age is 21.

Another must-visit on Dubai holidays is the Dubai Marina "canal city", which runs for 3 km along the shoreline. There are excellent hotels, including the vast Jumeirah Beach Residence, plus Dubai's usual excellent selection of boutiques and restaurants. More leisure options are available at the Creek – like much of Dubai, this was developed from scratch over recent decades, but now provides a dazzling array of activities. Whether it's the 18-hole golf course, the yacht club or the refreshing greenery of Dubai Creek Park, it's a tremendous place to unwind.

Although holidays in Dubai are extraordinary, you may want a change of scene at some point; a desert safari offers the perfect opportunity. There are many operators, so check special offers – sale prices can give you the safari experience at a pleasantly low cost. Although itineraries vary, generally you'll travel over the dunes in 4x4 vehicles, complete with photo stops. There may be a visit to local attractions like camel farms or belly dancing shows, and you'll get fed. Holidays to Dubai from Ireland really are special; let SunSearch Holidays make them even more amazing!
