A day at the beach in Dubai doesn’t have to cost a thing, but it is a lot more fun to relax on a comfortable chaise in the shade with a glass of chilled white wine and a dozen oysters. While there are dozens of classy beach clubs to choose from, most clubs are part of the best 5-star hotels and range from comfortable and pricy to luxurious and outrageously expensive.
Sunbathing like a sheikh doesn’t come cheap, but it does include several perks. Comfortable beach chaises, a parasol, towels and sometimes mineral water are included in the price; food and drinks are separate. Prices are high so don’t forget to bring a credit card – that bottle of house wine with a dozen oysters may set you back 100 euros. In Dubai that is actually a modest sum. Here follows a top 3 of the best beach clubs.
