Dubai's Beautiful Beaches

Located on the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf, Dubai has exquisite beaches with crystal blue waters. A number of hotels in Dubai offer private beaches exclusive to their guests (click here to see a list of some of those hotels). Visitors not staying at these hotels may access these exclusive areas for a fee.

At these secluded beaches, visitors will find few (if any) facilities, shops, vendors, etc. There is only peace, tranquility, endless sunshine, and kilometers of white, sandy beaches.

Dubai's public beaches, in contrast, are bustling with life. Stretching for endless kilometers along the Persian Gulf's crystal blue waters, public beaches are alive with locals, families and sunbathing tourists.

Visitors will find an impressive variety of water sports, amenities, and beach activities, including but not limited to:
  • Sailing
  • Banana boats
  • Parasailing
  • Snorkeling
  • Jet Skiing
  • Windsurfing
  • Scuba Diving
  • Water Skiing
  • Lifeguards
  • Chaise & Parasol rental
  • Sunbed rental
  • Seaside Cabanas
  • Children's Play areas
  • Picnic/Barbecue areas
  • Shopping, cafes and restaurants
  • Sports facilities
  • showers and changing rooms
