Al Qudra Lake


Al Qudra Lake is a man-made desert oasis built to promote eco-tourism in Dubai. Surrounded by multiple artificial lakes, sandy beaches and fauna. This attraction gained popularity in 2015 due to the vibe and solitude of the authentic desert. Initially, this part of the Al Qudra Desert, which was a camping site, includes many activities that give visitors the opportunity to explore the desert and what it offers. Al Qudra Lake continues to be popular among campers as well. If you want to pack your barbecue gear and head to this man-made desert oasis next weekend, we would not be surprised - there are so many things waiting for you!
