9 Umm Suqeim Park Beach: Also known as Sunset Beach, this popular spot is the place to head with tourists to get the classic ‘holding up the Burj Al Arab’ shot. It’s also one of the better surfing beaches in the city and wave-seekers often head here early in the morning during winter to catch the first peak of the day, bobbing right near 360° bar off the shore at Jumeirah Beach Hotel. When the surf’snot up, Umm Suqeim Beach’s calm waters are a big hit with paddleboarders and young families, although parking can be notoriously tricky at weekends and the nearest shops are some walk away. There’s a park right next door if you fancy grass under foot, but it’d be wise to bring a cover-up – a hoodie or similar – if you intend to venture out into the street (cultural sensitivity first!).
Off Al Thanya Street, adjacent to Jumeirah Beach Hotel, opposite Umm Suqeim Park (follow the sign for the park).
