Go on, get sand between your toes
If beaches don't come to your mind when you think of Dubai, you still have plenty of exploring to do. Sunset Beach, Al Mamzar Beach Park and Black Palace Beach are perfect for a lazy day in the sun, while Kite Beach is ideal for everything from kite surfing to paddleboarding. Dubai has redefined the urban beach with chic precincts such as the aptly named The Beach at JBR or La Mer, the city's newest beachfront.
Visit one of Dubai’s public beaches for a taste of Arabian beach life or book an afternoon at one of the chic and all-inclusive beach clubs that line the coast. There are dozens to choose from, with plenty of choice for couples, friends and families alike. Take your pick, and head out for a dose of sun and sand.
