Popular Public and Paid Beaches in Dubai
There are many reasons for the emergence of Dubai as a favorite tourist
destination. One are the many mega construction projects that are
simultaneously being undertaken in there. Another are the rich sporting
events that are participated in by some of the best-known men and women
in sports (golf, tennis, horse race, etc.).
Still another are the different Dubai festivals, holidays, and such other
festive occasions that many families across the globe dream of
The beaches in Dubai also are definite tourist come-ons. For many years,
people from around the world spend their holidays in the public and paid
beaches in Dubai. These beaches offer water sports as well as a wide
range of recreational activities.
Finding a place to stay that's near a beach is not a problem.
Accommodation facilities adjacent to the many public and paid beaches in
Dubai are well developed to serve the needs of guests. Of course, finding
a 5-star hotel near any of these beaches is not a problem, but tourists
may opt for budget lodging facilities, which are also easy to find there.
Some of the beaches in Dubai are very close to private hotels; on these
beaches, guests can spend the day on the fine sand and enjoy the famous
waters of the Arabian Gulf for a small fee. Other beaches are free. This
means that visitors to Dubai have a wide choice of either a free public
beach or a paid private beach to enjoy the holidays.
The Corniche, Creek, Kite Beach, Khor Al-Mamzar, Russian Beach, and Umm
Suqeim are some of the popular free public beaches in Dubai. The Kite
Beach is especially popular for its long and smooth views. This beach is
ideal for kitesurfers and sunbathers. On peak seasons, its waters are
full of people, many of whom are trying to learn or practice some of the
water sports available there.
The Umm Suqeim is famous for its white sand, while the Russian Beach is
very near the Dubai Marine Beach Resort and Spa in the celebrated town of
Jumeirah. The Al-Mamzar is another popular public beach and is an
important park in Dubai. It sits on a 250-acre land, extending all the
way to the Persian Gulf. This beach also offers picnic spaces, fine green
areas, and swimming pools, all of which are free to the public.
Of the many paid beaches in Dubai, the Jumeirah Beach Park is perhaps the
most popular. Note, however, that this beach is reserved for women and
children only. Those who stay in this beach will enjoy its white sand,
clean water, and its great facilities, including barbeques, picnic
tables, kiosks, and walkways.
Three other popular paid beaches in Dubai are the Meridien Mina Seyahi,
Royal Mirage, and Hilton Dubai Jumeirah. Some of the recreational
activities offered in these beaches include paragliding, jet skiing,
windsurfing, and deep-sea fishing.
In any of these public and paid beaches in Dubai, tourists can wear the
usual beachwear. Of course, they are expected to change to appropriate
clothings once in public.
