I’ve read some of the other mostly positive reviews on here and I’m left scratching my head as to why. We went to Jumeirah beach to get those iconic shots of The Burj Al Arab in the background, and obviously to do the usual beach...More
had gone with my friends to DUbai in Nov. last year & we stopped at the beach for a couple of hours @ 11pm. It was breath-taking with the majestic JBR on one side & the silent sea on the other. The beach had a...More
If you like to do a bit of fitness like me on holiday, there is a running track made of some springy spongy type material great for running on with km markings every 100m. There is a starting point across from the public park on...More
Easy access by public transportation and a short walk. Convenient changing booths on the beach. All around me were respectful of their space on the beach. Warm water. Family oriented without seeming distractingly noisy. Loved it!
I spent a day trapsing all over the Jumeirah beach area (mostly because my Uber dropped me off at the wrong area) and found a lot of cool little areas.

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.
