We've tracked down the top places to watch the sunset in Dubai. It's time to get back to nature
Time Out Dubai staff
1 Bahri Bar at Mina A’ Salam (04 366 6730). Watch the sun set over the Gulf and simultaneously reflect off the Burj Al Arab in a rather agreeable manner.
2 See the sun bounce off the Burj Dubai as the light disappears down its glass walls.
3 Uptown Bar, Jumeirah Beach Hotel (04 406 8762). This place faces away from the setting sun, resulting in a view of the city lit up like fire. And it’s one of the few bars with a view that’s actually outside, instead of through dust-covered windows.
5 Escape your tower block to watch the sun go down while sitting on the beach at JBR.
6 See the arc of the earth and the sky lit up from a plane as you jet off somewhere exciting.
7 Head over a desert dune, taking pictures of your mates posing as funny silhouettes in the evening shadows.
8 Neos bar on the 63rd floor of The Address Hotel (04 436 8928). It has some of the best views in the city any time of day, let alone during a sunset.
9 360°, Jumeirah Beach Hotel (04 406 8769). The al fresco, circular bar-at-sea is the place to be at 5pm on a Friday or Saturday. Though whether it’s to catch the sunset, or gaze at all the beautiful people there before it gets too dark is still a mystery. Reopens in winter.
10 The aptly-named Sunset Beach to the right of Jumeirah Beach Hotel, if you’re looking at the sea. Dubai’s surfers gave it the title for a reason.
