The Basics

Lapped by calm seas, Jumeirah Beach is backed by hotels, shops, and resorts. It commands panoramic views of Dubai’s skyline and landmarks such as the Burj Al Arab hotel. Large stretches are open to all—such as Jumeirah Public Beach and Jumeirah Open Beach—and are popular with families, swimmers, and sports lovers. Picnic areas, playgrounds, shops, and restaurants border many public areas. Facilities include showers, restrooms, and lifeguard stations. The adjacent Jumeirah running track is ideal for beachfront jogs and walks.

Most Dubai tours stop at Jumeirah Public Beach for visitors to take photos and enjoy the stellar view of the Burj Al Arab. Hop-on hop-off buses also stop here, allowing you to disembark and enjoy the beach at leisure. For views of the beach against a backdrop of Dubai’s skyscrapers, head out on a speedboat, Jet Ski, or Flyboard.

How to Get There

Jumeirah Beach extends along Dubai’s Gulf Coast parallel to—but off—the D94, also known as Jumeirah Road or Jumeirah Beach Road. With no metro stations within easy strolling distance of the beaches north of the Palm Jumeirah, accessing the sands is easiest by taxi or hop-on hop-off bus.
