If you’ve ever wondered where all the pretty people go on a Friday afternoon, the answer is this secluded beach spot at Golden Tulip Al Jazira, Ghantoot. Blue Marlin Ibiza UAE is a lively day-to-night party experience, popular with young expats. It isn’t hard to see the attraction: the beach club/outdoor nightclub and restaurant is just 20 minutes’ drive from Dubai and about 40 minutes from Abu Dhabi, ideal for partygoers from both emirates. Girls here look like supermodels while the gents are perfectly chiselled, so do throw on your nicest board shorts or kaftan. Opening on weekends, Fridays at the Balearic-inspired beach club start off calm when doors open at 1pm, before erupting into a storm post 7pm. Beach loungers and private tables are available to catch some rays, ranging from Dhs3,000 up to Dhs12,000. The restaurant on the upper deck caters to Saturday brunchers; perfect for those who’d rather watch the action from afar. Music ranges from pumping dance anthems to laid-back house vibes and revellers even take to the table tops.
