Best of Dubai
Umm Suqeim Beach
This strip of pearl-white sand between the fishing village and Jumeirah Beach Hotel has long been popular with everyone from tourists who like to sunbathe beside the Burj (for free), to surfers and even tri-athletes on weekends.
As suggested in the name, the area between the fishing village and the sailing club in Umm Suqeim is constantly colourful with kite surfers. And their lively antics make great entertainment for less energetic beach bums too.
Jumeirah Beach Park
This is the one that you’ll probably deposit visiting friends on while you’re at work. Easy to locate in Jumeirah 2, Dhs5 to get in, the place comes complete with lifeguards, cafés and, evidently, a park, which is just behind the beach. Oh, and everyone and their wives will be there on weekends.
It’s free, it’s close to Lime Tree Café and it lives up to its name: it’s open to all. If you want to experience a slice of ‘real Dubai’ in the sun, ditch the five-star resorts and spend a day at the glorious Open Beach instead.
