What
Jumeirah Beach is a stretch of sand along the coast of the Arabian Gulf at Dubai’s Jumeirah District. It spreads from the Jumeirah Mosque in the northeast down to the Palm Jumeirah in the Southwest.

While some portions of the beachfront are enclosed for private use, there are public areas where crowds gather on a daily basis.

The whole Jumeirah beachfront is dotted with luxury hotels, restaurants, residential complexes, parks, and shopping malls.

Why
Jumeirah Beach is the best place to spend a day at the beach for free and enjoy a wonderful view of Burj Al Arab, Dubai’s most iconic structure.

Aside from swimming, visitors can enjoy various water activities or simply delight in a family picnic at the beach.

From the Jumeirah Beach, you can swing to any of the nearby destinations such as the Jumeirah Beach Residence or the Jumeirah Beach Park.

Most important landmarks
While at Jumeirah Beach, you cannot miss the sail-shaped Burj Al Arab. Don’t miss a photo op with the world’s only 7-star hotel!

On the southwestern tip of Jumeirah Beach, you can find the Palm Jumeirah, a man-made palm-shaped island that is home to residential villas, hotels, and resorts, including the iconic Atlantis. The Palm Jumeirah is currently considered as the largest artificial island in the world.

The Jumeirah Beach Park is a mix of sand and green space that offers affordable amenities for the beach-bound crowd. After frolicking at the beach, you can also enjoy a game of volleyball at the court or dip in non-salty water at the swimming pool.
