Dubai is the most popular destination for vacation in recent years with its blue sea, white sand, and hot climate. Dubai, once a small fishing town, is one of the most popular and developed cities in the world today. The city, which hosts about 55 million tourists a year, is very famous for its beaches. On one side is Burj Al Arab, and on the other, there are skyscrapers behind the white and clean sandy beach. If you are looking for unforgettable places for the holiday, this is a must-see city with the purest water beaches.
These beaches are located in the warm, blue Persian Gulf and make the area a genuinely tropical resort. Although many beaches have been associated with private and luxury residential communities or hotels, the government has been able to provide numerous public beaches. Most of the beaches in Dubai are not naturally occurring, so the soft and white sand is flat and enlarged. Dubai's intense summer heat means many people go to the beach after dinner. Even in the winter months, you can find tourists who escape from the cold of Europe.
As we started to talk about the beaches, let's continue. Here is our list of the ten cleanest and most popular beaches in Dubai. Let's get acquainted!
Jumeirah Beach Park
Jumeirah Beach Park is one of Dubai's most popular beaches, with its downtown location, reasonable prices, and the concept of a beach park. This beach can be an answer to the question: "What is most white beach in the world?" It shares its beach with the famous Burj Al Arab Hotel. Recently, it is the leading beach among the most popular beaches for its golden sand and clean water. Ideal for families with children. There is a permanent rescue service, decent toilets, and changing rooms. It is spread over 12 hectares, and there are many cafes in the lush green park. It is possible to walk under the palm trees and have a barbecue. There is no room for prohibitions. In addition to the playground, there are volleyball courts, pools, and spacious parking space. The Jumeirah beach, which offers the ideal recreation for young people, is quite busy on weekends.
Open daily from 07:30 to 22.00.
On Mondays, only women and children are allowed to access.
Entrance fee: 5 dirhams per person; Parking cost: 20 dirhams.
Al Mamzar Beach Park
The beach park, spread over an area of 106 hectares, has four different beaches and green space under palm trees. There are a shower and locker room on all four beaches. Some of the stylish air-conditioned lodges can be rented in recent years. It is very convenient and comfortable for families with children. The grass-covered park area with 1,600 palm trees and 300 coconut trees, is as impressive as the beach with blue water. This section includes walking and bicycle paths, luxury restaurants, three pools, and an amphitheater for children. You can also visit the park by miniature train. Al Mamzar Beach Park has been steadily making its way to the popularity of Jumeirah Beach Park in recent years.
You can rent a small, air-conditioned beach tent with a barbecue brazier for a day. Although Al Mamzar is called the "Open Beach," there are fewer people here. Al Mamzar is close to Deira, the original heart of Dubai, which is an excellent place to visit. It is also close to the neighboring Sharjah border. Sharjah Palace Hotel can bring you closer to Al Mamzar Beach Park by crossing the border (such as moving from one US state to another).
The beach is open on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 08.00 to 22.00, and on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 08.00 to 23.00.
On Mondays and Wednesdays, only women and children are allowed to enter the beach.
The entrance fee is 5 dirhams per person and 40 dirhams by car.
JBR Beach is one of Dubai's most modern and European-like beaches. It gets its name from the Jumeirah Beach Residence buildings. Once, it was called "Russian Beach" for the popularity among Russian tourists. More than 10 million Russian tourists visit this place every year.
This beach in the shadow of the residential buildings is often preferred because of its white sand, purest water, as well as cosmopolitan visitors, proximity to the seascape, 1.8 km running path, and the 24-hour shops. Although you do not like swimming, this place is offered for a walk on the to-do list in Dubai. We also agree with this proposal. This beach, which is especially crowded on weekends due to its affordability, is well-loved by locals and tourists.
Hilton Dubai is located on the Jumeirah Walk (the main street along the beach), looking to the sea. There are plenty of places to rent "toys" such as water toys, bicycles, and scooters.
The beach is open on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 7:00 a.m to 10:00 p.m and from 7 a.m to 12:00 a.m on Fridays and Saturdays.
Kite Beach is mainly famous for water sports fans due to its windy weather. It is renowned for its colorful kites, rising from the water against the famous Burj al Arab Hotel. In addition to kiting and water skiing, there are also services such as bungee jumping, skiing, volleyball courts, and walking trails. Nevertheless, do not think that the beach is for sports fans only. There are many restaurants, cafes, and even a beach library.
