Covering 30 acres, Jumeirah Beach Park is Dubai’s best beach. The sand is smooth – if it’s not too hot you can easily walk around barefoot – and the water is warm. If you get hungry, there is a fast food restaurant and barbecue pits. Past the beach are grassy areas for playing cricket or football. There’s also a picnic area. Jumeirah Beach Park is a great place to relax and spend an afternoon, or early morning in the summer.
It’s not easily accessible by public transportation, so you’ll need to hail a cab.
