Hatta Dam, Hatta

(3.4/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Drive up to the top of steep Hatta Dam for a clear view of the green blue water gathered in the artificial lake below. Rocky bare hills with scarce shrubby vegetation surround the lake. Leave your car at the parking area on the top of the hill, take pictures, or simply enjoy the silence. You can even bring a basket of food and have a picnic before the sunset. Watch the sign on top of the dam for rules and regulations. Make Hatta Dam a centerpiece of your Hatta vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Hatta trip itinerary planner.

  • Also we wanted to actually visit the Hatta pools, but unfortunately they seem to be located in Oman, not currently accessible. Already on the outward journey on the E44 from Dubai to Hatta we were allowed to enter Oman despite valid passports not in the / this cross to get to Hatta. This is only allowed citizens of the Emirates and of Oman. The detour via the Emirates is about 50 km. A Hatta arrived, we learned that the pools are also currently unavailable. You recommend us to the Hatta dam, a turquoise-green cooling reservoir. You can currently 60 dirhams a kayak or rent a pedal boat for 120 dirhams. Bathing is not allowed, there are unfortunately no SUPs. Life jackets are required and are included in the price. The lease of boats is unlimited. A gastronomy not there site unfortunately. The Lake is very beautiful, but manageable size. When you're in Hatta, a nice outdoor experience. However, would we rather went to the pool and had bathed.
