The camping resort is all hammocks, campfires, and serene shorelines, and it only takes 20 minutes from the Marina to get here by car.
The resort puts on full-moon yoga and serves up wood-fired pizza, because camping doesn’t mean you have to slum it food-wise.
As our pictures show, brightly coloured wooden tents sit in rows along the shores among hammocks and swings facing out onto the sea.
If you want to get active with some al fresco sports, you can have a go at 12 different water activities or try your hand (or clenched fists) at beach volleyball.
If you’re here for the chills you can relax on a fire-side beanbag while devouring some fresh meats from the barbecue - or find a serene spot for some beachside meditation.
If bedding down on the beach http://www.timeoutdubai.com/aroundtown/features/79406-dubais-31-best-beaches isn’t quite to your standards, then you can opt for chalet accommodation, which ranges from rustic and quaint to some pretty upmarket options. From Dhs350 (tents, per night) from Dhs1,000 (chalets, per night). Banan Beach, Jebel Ali (050 501 6413).
