Dubai is home to many fancy hotels with their own private beaches, but they’re not the only place where you can have some fun and soak up the sun. Dubai’s public beaches are also pretty great, and here are some of the very best that offer breathtaking views of the Arabian Gulf.

Jumeirah Open Beach

The most popular public beach in the entire city, Jumeirah Open Beach is one of Dubai’s sunniest spots and it’s an especially great choice for family trips. It offers a modern playground for kids, volleyball courts, jogging tracks, and even a beach library for all the book lovers out there.

The Beach JBR

Known simply as the Beach, this sun-kissed spot is located opposite Jumeirah Beach Residences, Dubai’s bustling cosmopolitan area. It’s one of the city’s very best urban beachfront destinations because it offers a perfect combo of dining, shopping, entertainment, watersports, and summertime fun in one place.

Kite Beach

If sunbathing all day long isn’t your thing and you prefer trying all kinds of different watersports, Kite Beach is the place you need. It offers ideal conditions for kite surfing, kayaking, paddleboarding, and many other watersports, but you’ll also enjoy its food trucks and restaurants.
