Kitesurfing in Dubai
If you’re serious about your watersports and wish to test your skills on one of the best free beaches in Dubai, Kite Beach has the challenge you seek. Located steps from Jumeirah's main street, you’ll find high-quality watersports equipment available along the sand, with kitesurfing, wakeboarding and stand-up paddleboarding gear all ready to go. Try one of these fun sea activities, unless staying on dry land is more your thing – you’re bound to find a game of beach volleyball to join, along with a welcoming vibe and plenty of new friends to make in the process.

Salt Restaurant Dubai
A food truck turned burger restaurant, SALT is all about serving great food and fostering community. After gaining a loyal crowd of customers – or SALTERS as they prefer to be called – at its first location on Kite Beach, the brand quickly expanded to other popular spots and even ventured beyond the city. Strong on values, SALT often reiterates its commitment to quality ingredients, sourcing locally, using sustainable products where possible, supporting small businesses, enjoying nature and crafting social experiences around food, art and music.

Best Family Beach Clubs in Dubai
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.
