    Jumeriah Public Beach Park.

    by IreneMcKay Written Jan 2, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Noticed the sign for the public beach park when we were visiting Jumeriah Mosque. There is a paying beach park (small entry fee) and a public one (free). We had a look at the free one. There were showers on the beach and toilets were available, palm trees provided a bit of shade. The beach had a great atmosphere - people were swimming, playing football, riding go-carts, having picnics. There was a kiosk selling drinks and snacks. I noticed some surprisingly philosophical graffitti around. The best bit was the stunning view of Dubai skyline, though, great views towards the Burj Kahlife.

    Get here by number 8 bus.

    The Beaches

    by Amisha074 Written Dec 21, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dubai has some truly fantastic beaches. The Jumeirah Beach Park is ok. A good one is the open beach right after the The Palm Strip mall. As you're driving/walking down, you can see a sign saying 'Open Beach' . That's where you turn right. This beach is monitored by lifeguards and there are showers and toilets as well.

    If you're looking for a secluded beach, then drive down a bit or take Bus No. 8 or 8A to The University of Wollongong (their old premises, not the new one at Knowledge Village). Just behind the campus is a fabulous beach with an amazing view of the Burj Al Arab. On a clear day, you can see the Dubai Marina buildings as well. But! there aren't any lifeguards here. No showers either.

    There are quite a few beaches like the one I've described above, but this one is a personal favourite.

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    People free, easy to get to and over 1,000 years old. Reputed to be the main trade route in the Abbasid period along the Arabian coast from Meopotamia (Iraq) to Oman. Remains of 6 or 7 buildings are visible via a level walking path. Shade available, secruity people will give you brochure at gate, entry 7.30am till about noon. Free. Directions, from Beach Road, turn right into Al Athar rd towards Safa Park and 2nd left. Frm Al Wasl rd heading to Safa Park turn Right at Petrol station with Subway/Pizza Hut then Left at T junction - its the big dusty looking block of land with a wire fence around it.

    Worthwhile visit - particularly if you like Museum

    Jumeirah Beach

    by mikey_e Written Nov 28, 2012

    Jumeirah Beach is, of course, one of Dubai’s biggest selling points. It is a beach with beautiful, soft sand that is generally clean, and the waters of the Persian Gulf can often be of a sparkling blue that will surprise many beachgoers. Nevertheless, Dubai can become so hot and humid that I often wonder about the people who decide that they will come here during the summer: at 50 degrees centigrade and 100% humidity, the soft sand can feel like a burning knife cutting into your feet. Bring beach shoes and Gatorade.

    The Park

    by mikey_e Written Nov 28, 2012

    Jumeirah Beach Park has one advantage over Jumeirah Beach: you will be obliged to wear shoes here and thus not burn your feet. The park itself is filled with tropical plants and small playgrounds and picnic areas. When I visited on a Friday morning, it was fairly empty, but I’m certain that it fills up during the weekends, particularly on days when it isn’t too hot to be outside.

    Jumeirah Beach Road (D94 Road) Day View

    by machomikemd Updated Jul 27, 2013

    This will be my Jumeirah Beach Road Day view tips. I will have the night view tips with more pictures too.

    The most popular road in Dubai is indisputably, the Shiekh Zayed Road, but a close second in popularity is the Jumeirah Beach Road (D 94 Road), which runs Paralles to Shiekh Zayed Road up to the Jumeirah Beach Residences in Dubai Marina, where it merges with Shiekh Zayed Road. The road hosts one of the most luxurious and exclusive neighborhoods in Dubai and it host of a number of luxe shops, hotels, restaurants like the Burj Al Arab, The Madinat Jumeirah, The Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Mercato Mall, Jumeirah Public Beach, Russian Beach to name a few. All City Tours of Dubai, whether the Big Bus Tours, Regular Bus Tours, Private Van Tours pass by this road at daytime to nearby destinations and photo stops in front of the Jumeirah Mosque, Union Flag and Jumeirah Public Beaches.

    You must also see the road a night as it is also colorful and lively.

    according to wikipedia:

    D 94, also known as Jumeirah Road, Jumeirah Beach Road or Al Sufouh Road, is a road in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The road runs parallel to Dubai's coast along the Persian Gulf and along E 11 (Sheikh Zayed Road), connecting the sub-localities of Jumeirah (Jumeirah 1, 2 and 3). Once it enters the locality of Al Sufouh, D 94 becomes known as Al Sufouh road. It originates near Dubai Maritime City and the Dubai Dry Docks; and terminates after Jumeirah Beach Residence by turning south and merging with the Sheikh Zayed Road.

    Important landmarks along D 94 include Dubai Dry Docks, Jumeirah Grand Mosque, Mercato Mall, Dubai Zoo, Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Wild Wadi Water Park, Burj Al Arab, Madinat Jumeirah and Palm Jumeirah.

    The Jumeirah section of the road underwent a beautification and expansion project in the early 2000s which added an additional lane on both the directions of the road; and increased the greenery and barriers on the road medians.

    The Al Sufouh Tramway is being built along this route to connect Jumeirah and Umm Suqeim with the rest of the Dubai Metro network.

    The Beach at Jumeirah Beach Residence

    by machomikemd Written Jul 29, 2013

    The Beach at Jumeirah Beach Residence is still undregoing construction and hopefully when I go back to Dubai Next year, it will be finished and I will have pictures and videos inside. This complex lies between the Hilton Hotel and Sheraton Hotel and blocks the jumeirah beach view of the Walk at Jumeirah Beach Residences Area. This still ongoing construction complex is located at the Trendy Dubai Marina Area.

    according to wikipedia:

    The Beach at Jumeirah Beach Residence is a retail complex being constructed on the beach in front of JBR by Meraas Holding, a company owned by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. The development, comprising four plazas, will occupy the bulk of the beach between the Hilton and Sheraton hotels. The complex will house a number of levels of parking as well as seventy retail and food and beverage outlets, together with entertainment facilities.[7] Construction of the project began in the second half of 2012 and is expected to be completed by the end of 2013.

    under construction will be facing the hilton hotel it will block the beach view of the walk at JBR will block the beach view

    Jumeirah Beach Residences (JBR) at Dubai Marina

    by machomikemd Written Aug 3, 2013

    The Jumeirah Beach Residences (JBR) is again a world's first! It is the largest single phase residential development in the world and contains 40 towers (35 are residential and 5 are hotels). The JBR is located in the Dubai Marina Area and lies just after the Palm Jumeirah Islands and besides the tall buildings, It also has the 1 mile long Mall called The Walk at Jumeirah Beach Residences (see my shopping tips) and an ongoing Mall construction called the Beach Mall. This area is the favorite hangout of the Rich Western Expatriates of Dubai and is where majority of the population is composed of Western Expatriates from Europe, North America and Australia.

    You can eat or dine or shop at the walk at JBR or party during the night. Also bathe in the Jumeirah Public Beach in Front of the Area as they have life guards here.

    Bars and Restaurants here opens: 10:00 am to 12:00 midnight everyday with some coffee shops and restaurants open 24/7!

    Jumeirah Beach (fronting Burj Al Arab)

    by machomikemd Written Aug 5, 2013

    The Jumeirah beahj is the longest beach in Dubai and it stretches from Bur Dubai Area up to the Jebel Ali Area, up to the Boundary to Abu Dhabi. This tip will be along some of the more popular stretches of the Jumeirah Beach.

    The Jumeirah Beach That Lies before the Burj Al Arab and after the Jumeirah Beach park is easily the most popular for regular sunbathing tourists as this public beach has magnificent views of the Burj Al Arab and the Jumeirah Beach Hotel and has public Changing Rooms and Showers. This is where the City tours have photo stops for gawking tourists like us who want to walk along the beach and take pictures of the sights (and the heavenly bodies too! hehehe).

    This stretch lies parallel along the Jumeirah Beach Road and hosts one of the most expensive villas, houses and commercial areas in Dubai.

    Jumeirah Beach (fronting Dubai Marina)

    by machomikemd Written Aug 5, 2013

    This will be my tip of the Jumeirah Beach part in the Dubai Marina Area, Fronting the Jumeirah Beach Residences.

    The Jumeirah beach is the longest beach in Dubai and it stretches from Bur Dubai Area up to the Jebel Ali Area, up to the Boundary to Abu Dhabi. This tip will be along some of the more popular stretches of the Jumeirah Beach.

    first of all, going to the Dubai Marina and to the Jumeirah Brach fronting the Jumeirah Beach Residences (JBR) is not part of any city tour of Dubai. Either you go here via taxi or a long walk via the Dubai Marina Metro Station or via RTA Public Bus or via a friend living in dubai. this stretch of Jumeirah beach is more popular for the western expatirates rather than the stretch fronting the Burj Al Arab, which is for western tourists. The view here is more of seeing the persian gulf and parts of the Palm Jumeirah Island Villas and Atlantis (if you have a long zoom lens in your camera) and the best deal here is that they have beach bars and restaurants located beside the beach via the hotels lining the beach like the sheraton and hilton and other commercial establishments.

    Jumeirah Beach

    by xiquinho Written Dec 29, 2007

    This is the famous beach that is now home to many of Dubai's best hotels. The smooth white sand may be lined with modern development, but the waters are clean and clear and there's plenty of space on the beach for Dubai's increasing number of tourist visitors.

    You can enjoy windsurfing or sailing in the calm shallows or simply choose to lie on the sands and paddle in the gulf's warm water. Be aware that some parts of the beach are closed to men on Saturdays.

    There are quite a few beaches like the ones I've mentioned above, but these are personal favourites.

    To get to Jumeirah or any of the above mentioned beaches take Bus. No. 8 or 8A from the Al Ghubaiba bus station in Bur Dubai.

    Jumeirah Park's Beach

    by Nemoa Updated Feb 12, 2005

    Not my favourite one.
    It is the option if you don't want to go to the public one.
    There is a part of the beach where you are a bit more protected from the sight of people but it normally is crowded and the sand is not very clean.

    The toilets are disgusting too. Instead of having proper loos like Al Mamzar or others, it has these disgusting "hole in the ground" toilets where you cannot avoid pissing all over your flip flops and step on other people's fluids wherever you walk.

    I would recommend you to avoid this one and to go to some othe nice one where you will pay a small price for a luxury treatment.

    The day I went there was amazing noise too as they were building a small island in front of the beach. More Km of beach to come !!

    Price is 5 Dh and Sat and Mon is Ladies and Children only.

    Jumeirah Public Beach

    by Nemoa Written Feb 12, 2005

    Not a recommended one..This is a stretch of beach that runs paralel to the road and it looks like sunbathing.... at the side of a road !!

    Some people love it though. The views if you get close to the Burj Al Arab Hotel are stunning but in the other hand you have to stand the stare of men who will look at you as if they were watching TV.... Not nice, really embarrasing I suppose although the russians in mini bikini I saw there did not seem to be to bothered...

    There are facilities though, showers, toilets, etc...
