Good Beach Near Burj Al Arab

Very good sandy beach but super hot. May be all the beaches in Dubai are very very hot. However good to have photographs near Burj Al Arab. Beware of Hot Sun :)

Blue waters, palm trees, nice lounge areas. What else could you need? It was one of my favorite beach spots in Dubai. Definitely recommend it.

The Beach is clean, and not so much crowded, so you can stay and swim in this very lovely beach, with a warm water and a bar just outside it

Wow...this beach is an oasis of sanity on this totally restricted, privatised stretch of Coast. We were unprepared when looking to go to the beach to only have a single choice. It's beautiful turquoise waters are magical with close views of the Burj Al Arab. There's no trees or other forms of shade so come prepared to be hot. Umbrella... More

This beach is great for families. The water gets quite warm like a spa and the views out may not be as picturesque right now with the construction of the new Dubai Wheel but all the other qualities of a good beach exist. Close to many good eating places as well which is very tourist friendly.

Spent most of the day on the beach or close by on a sun bed, was incredibly hot even walking in the surf so would recommend an umbrella for shelter, it's nice being able to walk along a lovely stretch of beach, very clean although lots of shells & small starfish scattered around with just the occasional bit of litter,...

If you really must go to the beach then it has all the requirements except perhaps the view. Be sure to take plenty of suncream or else you will burn

Staying in Jumeirah

Neighborhood Profile
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.
