The latest beach development in Jumeirah attracts with its modern design and feel and lovely facilities for the kids. Make sure you don’t miss the hammocks and water buckets!
Your best choice of a beach if you would like to take pictures with the most sought-after Dubai landmark, Burj Al Arab, and the beautiful Dubai Marina skyline. Located just off Al Sufouh Road between Madinat Jumeirah and the turn-off for Palm Jumeirah.

Probably the most popular beach location with plenty of cafes and food trucks at which to grab a bite – plus sun beds to rent now too. Can get crowded at the weekend but super fun when the kites are up!
Our favourite spot for a late afternoon swim or a walk. The beach is vast and beautiful with its palm trees and exotic beach bushes. Be prepared for some wild running too!

Park your car and just walk to the beach. Very easy access to the quiet lagoon and lovely views of Sharjah’s skyline. Add some comfy tables and umbrellas for a quick bite and the beach outlets for refreshments, and this spot makes for a perfect afternoon beach visit. If you fancy a small adventure, the RTA boat service is close by and offers a boat trip in the lagoon.

Awesome for an early morning walk, even on a chilly morning! You will definitely feel refreshed – also great for watching surfers as there’s often a good swell here. And you’ll get good photos with the Burj Al Arab in the background too!
