Admire calm waters along this patch of Dubai shoreline
Al Sufouh Beach is one of Dubai’s hidden gems, hence the nickname 'Secret Beach'. It is also known as Black Palace Beach due to the regal real estate nearby. Covered behind a row of palm trees, it’s easy to miss, but well worth the scouting mission. The destination is tucked away between the Burj Al Arab and Palm Jumeirah and not far from Madinat Jumeirah. Perfect for a quiet and relaxing time, you’ll quickly see why Al Sufouh Beach is one of the best spots to unwind in Dubai.
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 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 is a great place for a nap in the sun or to catch up on some reading – there's even a handy library station for donating or borrowing books.
La Mer is an urban beachfront destination that combines sun and sand with shopping and style. With turquoise waters, white sands and funky murals, the leisure locale brings a splash of colour to the surrounding Jumeirah neighbourhood. The development boasts a modern industrial aesthetic and features a buzzworthy selection of shops, cafes, restaurants and beach activities for you to enjoy. In 2023, La Mer is set to unveil many new-to-Dubai venues. Soon, you can make your way to internationally-acclaimed beach clubs like Sirene Beach by Gaia and Bâoli while here, among other spots that promise elevated seaside experiences.
Bring on the beach with stunning sunset scenes and dining and nightlife options
Sun and sea worshippers will find plenty to do on the shores of Palm West Beach along the trunk of the Palm Jumeirah island. With all-day beachfront entertainment and the best Dubai skyline views on the 1.6km of promenade and beachfront, be prepared to have a fun time with your friends and family – as well as your pets! Get your daily dose of exercise along the walking and running trail, indulge in lazy beachfront breakfasts, or build sandcastles against the backdrop of picture-perfect sunsets.
Roam around a huge beach park that's perfect for families
Al Mamzar Beach features five pristine beaches for sunbathing or swimming. Before reaching the soft white sand, you'll cross a large section of manicured lawn, with winding foot and bike paths sided by swaying palm trees. Spread over 106 hectares, Al Mamzar includes three stunning pools where families can cool off instead of getting sandy on the shore. For a small fee per person, this expansive park and beach, with lush barbecue areas, landscaped playgrounds, lagoons and a sheltered beach is perfect for a day out. You can also rent a sun lounger or even book a private, air-conditioned beach chalet for a more exclusive experience.
