Dubai Wadi Dam

Nature Reserve in Hatta

Motionless turquoise water surrounded by craggy mountain peaks, Hatta dam is a spectacle of natural beauty. Part of the Hajar mountain range and about a two-hour drive from Dubai airport, it’s perfect for kayaking on or just for getting some amazing Instagram snaps. Afterwards, head off on a mountain hike or seek out the nearby Hatta rock pools.
