Top ways to experience La Mer
The area
Neighborhood: Jumeirah
Years ago, before the skyscrapers, before the 12-lane highway, there was only Jumeirah. In fact, when the UAE was formed, its rulers signed the agreement in Union House, at the very start of Jumeirah Beach Road. Often called “The Beverly Hills” of Dubai, a drive down Beach Road reveals one enormous, lavish villa after another. Originally residential-only neighborhoods, they are now also home to an array of cafes, smart boutiques, and art galleries. Home to one of Dubai’s few public beaches, this recently renovated area includes a new boardwalk, running and walking track, with changing facilities and cafes along the way. Another landmark, Jumeirah Mosque, is the only mosque in Dubai that can be entered by non-Muslims. As part of the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding, the mosque hosts regular tours and talks about Islam, as part of an “Open Doors, Open Minds” program. A wonderful way to understand more about the UAE and Islam.

Go in the evening, relax on the beach for a while, and then stroll among the stores and restaurants. There's something for the whole family to enjoy at La Mer. If you're coming for the beach, arrive a little early so you can find a parking spot quickly. Please be aware that visitors to La Mer are not permitted to bring their own food or beverages. You won't find any of the usual food court brands here, either. Because certain activities are only available in a given direction, you should explore the entire area. What irritated me is that the area where you may sit and enjoy the view of the beach is full of smoke and cigarettes.' The cost of renting sun chairs was extremely expensive. The outside showers were fee-based. It is provided completely for free on other beaches. There is a free and paid play area. Parking in La Mer is highly pricey! They will charge at least 20 dirhams per hour. Valet parking costs 55 dirhams. There are basement parking choices. Parking is free if you spend more than 100 dirhams. La Mer might be added to the list of places to go for a luxury meal from open restaurants.
Hawa Hawa, La Mer's outdoor trampoline park, Roxy theatre and Laguna Waterparkneeds to be considered during your visit here.
There are a few stalls where teens and adults can try their luck at the games too ! If you're lucky, you'll be able to attend a stage performance or a DJ night like this for free! Entry to La Mer is also free.

Stylish, modern and relaxed shopping area and huge beach.

The beach is free but if you want a sun lounger you pay a rental fee, there also some water sports you can do on the beach.

There a variety of cafes/restaurants and loads of instagramable artwork which look great for hotel pics.

It’s alot less crowded then JBR

Yet another of Dubai's hidden gems. La Mer beach is simply a marvel for the ingenuity in the crafting of various restaurants, shops and cinema's complete with outdoor "bose speakers" that provide soothing music all through the beach walk experience, it's a true travellers wonder. The soft lighting is especially heightened in the evening hours complete with Dubai's skyline silhoutte. It's simply beautiful and fun to hang around. I spent an afternoon here and loved the whole experience. Can't wait for pandemic to ease travel restrictions so I can head back.

I love going to leMer beach however today will be my last visit
The overpriced sun loungers @ aed 180 for 2 have now been increased 25% to aed 240 with no justification at all, The forever empty cabins have gone from aed 600 to aed 800 once again with no justification. It’s the same beach with the same sun loungers. Unfortunately the poor staff who haven’t had a salary increase are taking the brunt of the complaints. If this is how loyal customers get repaid then in the future we will bring our own equipment and enjoy the beach free.
You people need to have a serious word with yourselves

La Mer has a nice beach with some entertainments for famillies and children. There is a water park and also a small playground, electric cars and a small kart racing field that children really enjoy. But some services are a little expensive. 120 AED to rent a sunbed and if you want to take a shower in private shower you have to pay 150 AED, but there are 2 public shower which I used them 😜
Generally I'd recommend this beach.

I’ve eaten at Salt when they had a mobile unit downtown Dubai near the fountains. Now they have an established unit at La Mer, Dubai.

The premises are so clean and spacious with seating indoors and outdoors with social distancing in place and hand sanitizer available.

The menu is visible via a QR code so you browse very easily.

I opted for the ‘hook’ slider with hook sauce, wagu beef patties. The food is always made fresh and is always hot on delivery.

The fire fries were ok, I personally think I prefer the standard fries as the sauces are an over kill. However, the black lemonade is always so refreshing and the black appearance is only activated charcoal giving the colour.

Price point, more than your average burger or slider, but Salt is different and they achieve this so it’s worth paying slightly more for the quality.

Customer service is always fantastic although I wish they wouldn’t suggest add on’s like ice creams etc when I have the menu to view myself, but I think that’s the mindset of the servers. That’s my only negative aspect of Salt. I would say let the customers choose from the menu.

This was a most disappointing visit . From our arrival at a chaotic underground parking facility to leaving four hours later the experience was dismal. Overcrowded beach with completely inadequate changing/toilet/ shower facilities. Tacky food and retail outlets and a view of cranes and building sites didn’t enhance the experience.
There are much nicer beaches in the area- Kite Beach if you like restaurants etc, likewise JBR or Al Mamzar for an unspoilt beach and adjacent park.
Despite being a public beach, La Mer is all about relieving you of your money. If you do go don’t forget to validate your car park ticket in any retail outlet or parking will cost you a fortune.

Beautiful atmosphere at lamer beach which feeds on itself in such a wonderful way. An amazing experience of modern, delicious Indian food. Set in a beautifully designed space with staff that are friendly, attentive and professional at all time and the interior is very unique and stylish and the roof terrace offers skyline and ocean views.

It’s simply a great place to be in Dubai, a very different ambience feel beach area with lots of eateries, lagoona water park some shops as well, water sports etc etc simply very nice place well organized, well maintained, clean area. Beach access is free with some restriction like you can’t take your own umbrella only at designated places etc. Sun beds, umbrellas available on rent approx 180 aed for two beds and umbrella what I was informed by one of attendants.

Good choices of eating places a little pricy but very good place available with mouthwatering food.

Nevertheless a must visit very good nice place for a family day out with clean beach.
