Get that ultimate family holiday feeling as you swim, play and eat at the best beach clubs in Dubai.


Riva Beach Club

Tucked away on Palm Jumeirah's shoreline, this stylish, nautical-inspired oasis is a popular weekend spot for young families. Little ones can splash in the kids' pool as you relax in an outdoor lounge area. Or, enjoy a meal at the popular Italian restaurant with its relaxing Mediterranean vibe. Riva is the ideal place to take a break from the city bustle, so sit back on a sun lounger and relax amidst the postcard-perfect views.


Jumeirah Beach Hotel

Few hotels in Dubai can brag they have Burj Al Arab in their backyard. Featuring plush views of the Arabian Gulf, beach access at this iconic wave-shaped hotel includes entry to five swimming pools, plus the slides and tube rides at Wild Wadi Waterpark next door. For a further fee, the KiDS' Club presents a world of underwater-themed fun for little ones with a soft play area, arts and crafts, sports and more.


Fairmont The Palm

If the complimentary fruit kebabs, ice-lollies and sunglass-cleaning service isn't enough to woo you, then the family-friendly facilities at Fairmont The Palm surely will. In addition to two pristine outdoor pools, you can also take advantage of the 800m secluded beach stretch. Sign up for a host of watersports such as water-skiing, wake boarding and kayaking, while you treat your kids to a fun-filled time at the Fairmont Falcon Juniors' Club, home to a squeal-inducing splash park, toddler's playhouse and climbing walls.

JA The Resort

A short drive from Dubai Marina and you'll find the award-winning facilities at JA The Resort – the city's largest experience resort. Dive into fun with playtime activities for all age groups amidst a stunning beachside setting. Relax in the four temperature-controlled swimming pools, as your little ones play at the Coolzone kids club. There's plenty of watersports to try too, including wakeboarding, catamaran sailing or stand-up paddleboarding.


Sofitel Dubai The Palm Resort & Spa

Even if you’ve seen and done it all, plenty of surprises await at Sofitel Dubai The Palm. Not only does the resort have a host of indoor and outdoor activities – think watersports, yoga, aqua-based fitness classes – but children can make the most of their own itinerary of fun each day at Amura Kids Club. An all-out treat, the club features dancing fountains, swimming pools with slides, games and activities and even a dedicated kids cinema.
