What To Do In The UAE This Weekend?

Fun runs, beach clubs and breakfast in a plunge pool – your weekend starts here!


Dubai Fitness challenge comes to a close this weekend, with the city’s biggest fun run happening on Friday, November 27. Transforming the entire city into a personalised running track, Dubai Run 2020 participants are being invited to walk, run and jog wherever and whenever they wish – from their own community, neighbourhood, or favourite park, even choosing the distance they want to complete.

Championing inclusion for people of all ages, abilities, and fitness levels, Dubai Run has partnered with Dubai Cares to support students whose lives have been disrupted by this year’s unique challenges. While the event remains free-to-enter, participants are invited to support “Education Uninterrupted”, a nationwide fundraising campaign that tackles the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on the education of children and youth in the UAE. Want to get involved? You need to hurry up! Visit dubairun.com for more details and to register. 


In the capital this weekend? Then head over to Abu Dhabi’s newest beach club and be among the first to soak up the sun on a lounger at Cove Beach, Makers District.

Sitting directly on the beachfront along the pristine coastline of Makers District on Al Reem Island and opposite the Saadiyat Island Cultural District, this Friday at its grand launch, Cove Beach will open the doors to its al fresco restaurant and lounge, 300 meters of beachfront, a pool set by the ocean and the only swimmable beach on Al Reem Island. Set to stand out amongst the very few beach clubs on offer within the capital, with beautifully landscaped gardens, picturesque views of the ocean and the iconic Al Reem skyline, Cove Beach Abu Dhabi at Makers District looks set to become the weekend haunt of choice for the city’s most stylish sun-seekers.  Pre-booking essential.

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day – and when it’s a breakfast as glamorous as this one, we have to agree! Just the thing for luxury-loving early birds, Bab Al Shams Floating Desert Breakfast experience makes an amazing start to the day. Served in the comfort of your very own private plunge pool in one of the resort’s stunning villas, tuck into a delicious menu of delectable breakfast dishes as you soak up the morning sunshine at one of the city’s most idyllic hideaways. Priced AED600 per couple, dining slots are available from 7 am-11 am, with up to 6 guests permitted at a time- advance booking essential.
