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.
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.
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.
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.
