Dubai is well-known for its wealth, glamorous, contemporary development and design, and various shopping opportunities. But Dubai isn't only about 5-star grandeur; there's a lot more to explore. Have you heard about camping in the desert in Dubai? So, for your next trip to Dubai, we've put together a list of the most distinctive and quite cool desert camping locations in the city.

10 Best Places in Dubai for Desert Camping

1. Al Dhafra Beach

Located on the outskirts of Abu Dhabi, Al Dhafra Beach is one of Dubai's finest desert campgrounds. You can camp comfortably near the sea and find a few turtles and other marine life near the beach. Al Dhafra Beach is a great place to practice water sports such as scuba diving, snorkelling and kayaking, in addition to camping in the desert of Dubai.

2. Al Qudra

One of Dubai's most popular desert campgrounds, the Al Qudra is just 30 minutes from the Mall of the Emirates. The location of Al Qudra offers two different environments, one that looks like a desert and the other that has a beautiful oasis. Al Qudra is surrounded by dunes and if you are lucky, you can see wild camels during the morning hours. Camping here is just great, alone, with friends or with family

3. Fossil rock, Sharjah 

Located in Sharjah, Fossil Rock is one of Dubai's best desert camping spots and a popular meeting place for camping enthusiasts. Surrounded by dunes, it is ideal for large groups. Not only it is practically close to the city, but also far from the hustle and bustle of Dubai. If you want to try buggying on dunes with Fossil Rock, be sure to visit Big Red and The Camel Rock. 

4. Umm Al Quawain Wine Beach 

At Umm Al Quawain Beach, you can camp almost anywhere along the beach's coastline. However, be careful not to camp too close to the river as the tent can be flooded at high tide at night. You can visit an old fishing village along the Peninsula of Allers and prepare supper with fishing equipment along the way. A desert camp at Umm Al Quawain Beach in Dubai is a must-see experience.

It's very convenient for everyone to just set up a camp here. Fujairah is a great place for snorkelling and exploring the underwater world. 

6. White sand beach 

Camping enthusiasts can enjoy the coastline of Oman here. White Sand Beach is located between Finn and Wadi Shab. This is a great place to set up a camp/tent on a gorgeous cliff on a sandy beach. Here you can lie down and gaze at the night sky, enjoy the spectacular scenery and hear the sound of the waves. White Sand Beach is also ideal for water sports such as paddleboarding, snorkelling, scuba diving and fishing in the emerald green pool.

7. Bedouin Camp 

Bedouin camps are known for their group of desert inhabitants who roam the Arabian Peninsula. With the camp's public facilities, you can experience Dubai's luxury desert camp.

Here at Bedouin Camp in Dubai, there are many things to do: Enjoy belly dance performances, learn about Bedouin customs and traditions, have a delicious barbecue dinner, ride a camel, and enjoy sandboarding. 

8. Liwa 

If you love quarantine and loneliness, Liwa is a place for you. Located in the desert of Abu Dhabi, Liwa is also known as the "Empty Quarter" because of its isolated nature. It can only be reached with the help of off-road vehicles such as SUVs, compasses, shovels, lots of reservoirs and full gas tanks. When you get there, you'll soon notice that Liwa is one of the most beautiful deserts in the world with serenity and is full of wildlife.
