Some great news for splashdown lovers in the UAE as there’s a brand new water park coming to Dubai at the start of next year.
Jungle Bay is set to open in January 2021 at Le Méridien Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina.
And while it’s smaller than Aquaventure and the nearby Wild Wadi, there are plenty of big rides and slides! And thanks to the more compact size, the queues are likely to be a lot smaller. Which is a winner in our book!
Wave pool, slides and more
The family-friendly water park will have something for kids and adults of every age in Dubai. Kids and toddlers will love the AquaPlay area with special kids’ slides and water shooters.
But the real action is on the three 130m-long slides. Located at the top of a lighthouse, the slides include the Whizzard and the Body Slides which include a surprise high-speed drop. There’s also a 6m wave pool and the Refuel Cafe & Bar for when you need to take a breather.
Palm Beach now open
Dubai’s latest beach district, Palm West Beach, is now open with plenty of new bars, restaurants, shops and more.
The area stretches for 1.6km along the beachfront of the Palm and looks stunning.
As well as dozens of new bars and restaurants, Palm West Beach will also have 300 palm trees lit up at night. Making it perfect for runners and walkers. And, as the promenade and beach-front is also pet-friendly, it’s the perfect place to come and walk your dog.
Confirmed bars and restaurants opening include Koko Bay, Jones The Grocer, Lucky Fish and Orange Chameleon.
The area will also have eight hotels when it’s completed including Five Palm Jumeirah, Byblos, One Palm and Hilton Palm Jumeirah.
There will be plenty of sporting fun too as you’ll be able to hire kayaks, sea bikes, catamarans and hydrofoils.
