Staying in Jumeirah Beach in Dubai

Visiting the UAE? There are plenty of beaches besides deserts to explore when you arrive. You can even decide to pick your accommodations on the beach rather than in the heart of the city.

One of the best beach neighborhoods to stay in when visiting Dubai is Jumeirah Beach. It is about a 25-30 minute car ride to DBX airport and will leave you close to everything else.

There are many high end hotels at Jumeirah, such as the Sofitel, Hilton, and Sheraton. All have pools and that is highly important if you visit during the summer season. Temperatures reach above 100 degrees Fahrenheit and the beach really does become uncomfortable as they say.

An outdoor pool is a must, and if you like a view, go with the infinity pool and swim up bar combo at the Sofitel.

Along the beach, you will find the Dubai Walk – a famous promenade for shopping, socializing, and eating. There are many places to sit down and enjoy the view.

On a clear day, you can see Atlantis and the new Dubai Eye being built.

The water is entirely clear, with small fish swimming around, and a lot of space to enjoy water activities. Jet skis are available for rent at several stops at the beach. You may also see camels coming down the sand with people riding them.

Jumeirah Beach is quite the tropical beach in Dubai. If you do stay right on the beach, opt for the full ocean view.
