Kite beach is a must visit beach of Dubai

This beach is divided in 2 parts. On one side you get the sand beds and shades for 100 and 50 dhs respectively and the other side where the kite surfer operate. It was not a sunny day when we went. The water was infact cool without any waves up until lunch time. So after some time in the sea we headed to the restaurants by the sea where we had lunch. The sad part is that there is no liquor/beer served anywhere in the beach restaurants. So we quickly had our lunch and headed back to the other part of the beach. By this time the wind had picked up, there were waves and this attracted a lot of kite surfers. This seems to be such an amazing sport. May be it does take a bit of learning. Nonetheless we had a great time in the clear water with the views of burj al arab in the distance.One funny thing was there where no change rooms next to the showers. But then it wasn't difficult to manage.There was a man-made jogging track all along the beach that was awesome for a jog on a non sunny day.

Beach in a desert

We stayed there for a little time as a part of our city tour but enjoyed the view of beach, white sand with a backdrop of skyscrapers all around. The beach was as clean as possible with all facilities of change rooms, washing areas etc. I will definitely go there again but for a longer period next time.

A neat and clean Beach

This was also a point of our City Tour. A nice view of sea with huge Chowpatty Area. This beach is adjourned with main road so you have not walk for beach. The beach is middle of city also. A nice view of Dubai and an ideal place for photography. Some were taking benefit of swimming in sea. Worth visit place.

7 star beach

A beautiful beach which gives a magnificent view of self proclaimed 7 star hotel Burj -al Arab is worth a watch. In our 5 day stay in Dubai we visited the Jumeirah beach twice! We had a good sun bath watching those wonderful tides going to and fro.Carrying a swimsuit with yourself and visiting the beach before evening sets in would be a good advice for travelers as adventure sports are less advisable in the evening as the tides are stronger in the later half of the day.

All is to do is just relax in the shore

This is one of the best places to relax. If you do not feel like doing anything, just go to the beach and relax. Its very peaceful. People around are helpful and if you would like to start a conversation, you can depend on the languages you know. Arabic/English/Hindi, are widely spoken. Preferably just carry your camera and few Dirhams, are food and drinks are cheap.
