Whether you prefer countless shopping centres, theme parks or colourful souks, there is no reason to be bored in Dubai. Those who are looking for some peace and quiet may head to one of the many beaches and forget the hustle and bustle of the city. A tour along Dubai’s best beaches.
Although Dubai offers a number of beautiful beaches, visitors should be careful with the strong sun. Dubai has a warm and dry desert climate and temperatures often soar above 40 degrees Celsius. Protect yourself by renting a beach parasol and avoiding the sun during the hottest hours of the day.
Beach-goers who make a statement by avoiding Jumeirah often head to Al-Mamzar Beach Park. This area boasts 4 artificial but very pleasant beaches with separate swimming areas, lawns, summer houses, picnic areas, 2 swimming pools and various eateries. The romantic winding trails are perfect for a stroll or a bike ride, or board the train for a ride around the 90-hectare Al-Mamzar Beach Park. The 2 swimming pools have permanent lifeguards who keep an eye on playing children. Gentlemen please note: on Wednesdays the beach is open to women and children only.
