Bathe in the sun – or the Gulf
Welcome to Dubai’s most popular public beach and park. Have you brought your sunscreen? This is a haven for sun worshippers. The beach boasts deep golden sands lapped by the warm waters of the Gulf. You’ll find public showers here and plenty of water sports equipment for hire too.
Stroll back from the beach and you’ll come across the well-maintained public park. There’s never a dull moment – with games for the kids, BBQ areas, food kiosks, volleyball courts and walking tracks. And if you’re feeling not quite so energetic, just relax on a sun lounger and watch the world go by.
Just the right temperature
Getting a little hot and bothered in the city? Jumeirah Park & Public Beach are the perfect places to cool down. While the temperature is warm and balmy here all year round, you can cool off in the crashing surf of the Gulf, or find some shade to relax under.
The front of the beach is bordered by a promenade, with plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants. If you want to strut your stuff, come on over in the early evening. Locals cruise up and down the beach to take in the sights and sounds. Don’t forget to bring your camera for some great shots across the Gulf.
