Take up a sand dune adventure

It is a scene right out of a movie to be riding on a camel's back as the sun sets, across the desert. However, in order to discourage animals being involved in tourist attractions, sand dune adventures are now available on four-wheel drives where you get to truly enjoy nature. Depending on the tour you have signed up for you will go a certain distance and then turn around to come back where you will get to the see the setting sun hovering in the horizon across the desert. If time permits you can take a dip in the Khor Al Udaid.
