Relax at one of Dubai's most spacious and quiet beaches
Sunset Beach, also known as Umm Suqeim beach, is the perfect spot to relax with the sun, sand and Burj Al Arab in the distant background. One of the quieter spots along the coast, it is a beautiful area for morning jogs and strolls and watching the sun set across the Arabian Gulf. The calm beach allows you to take a long nap or catch up on some reading – there's even a handy library station for donating or borrowing books.
You get all the sunshine and warm water you could want in Dubai, so it's natural to want to try out surfing. Surf House Dubai is home for everything surfing and stand-up paddleboarding in Dubai. No matter if you're an expert surfer or a first-timer, you can find the right equipment and classes you need at Surf House. If you have never surfed or paddled before, the team will introduce you to these sports in a safe and fun environment.
One of the best waterparks you'll find anywhere in the world is the Wild Wadi Waterpark, a true Arabian water experience positioned right on the shores of the city's iconic Burj Al Arab. Wild Wadi is themed around the tale of classic Arabian character Juha and offers a variety of pulsating rides, slides and activities for all ages.
