Dubai is a strange experience. Everything is glimmering and modern, incuding its beaches. The water is crystal clear and incredible hotels make for a perfect vacation. The only problem is that there are so many beaches to choose from.
One of the most appreciated by tourists is the Jumeirah Beach in the northern part of town. Constructions have slowed down making the atmosphere a little more relaxing.
Another appreciated beach is Beach park, a public ground were both toutist and locals sometimes go. You can rent an umbrella and some chairs for a resonable amount just at the entrance; the water is just at the right temperature and makes for a good swim.
If you re looking for a quiet lonely beach Dubai is not the right place for you. Expect tourist, crowds and noise.
