Dubai is blessed with year-round sunshine as well as some of the best beaches featuring turquoise waters and golden sand. While most hotels feature private beach clubs for their guests, visitors can also enjoy the sunshine at one of Dubai’s many free public beaches. Kite Beach is a popular choice, with its urban city-meets-sea vibe, as is the Umm Suqeim Beach, which remains open until midnight. Take your pick.
There’s always something happening at The Beach at Jumeirah Beach Residence. At any given time you can expect to see pop-up markets selling locally-made arts and crafts and designer trinkets from further afield, roaming entertainment, art installations and even spectacular fireworks on special occasions. Walk along the sleek palm-lined esplanade and take it all in or go for a swim in the sparkling waters of the Arabian Gulf. For a small fee, you can also stay active by joining morning yoga classes or working out in the fully-equipped gym by the sea.
At the heart of Dubai’s mega theme park destination, Dubai Parks and Resorts, is Riverland, an expansive space with surprises at every turn. Inspired by different eras, Riverland takes you on a tour of a medieval-themed French Village, exotic India Gate, 1950s-style American boardwalk and The Peninsula, reminiscent of 19th century European architecture. Best of all? There are no entry fees. Along Riverland’s kilometre-long waterway, which regularly hosts fun events, you’ll also find fantastic restaurants and shops. Tired of all that exploring? Take a break and enjoy an express reflexology massage at Feet First or dine at Japanese restaurant Katsuya by Starck or gourmet cafe Leopold’s of London.
Rising dramatically out from its own island, just off the Jumeirah coast, Burj Al Arab has become a true symbol of Dubai hospitality. The luxury hotel’s distinctive sail shape beautifully reflects the city’s maritime heritage and is one of the most recognisable (and Instagrammable) spots in the city. For the perfect selfie, head to Umm Suqeim Beach and capture this Dubai icon in the background.
