For a taste of the idyllic beachside lifestyle make your way down to the relaxed district of The Beach at JBR. This bustling cosmopolitan area is like a beach resort anyone can access and enjoy a day in the sun with a contemporary Arabian touch. The family-friendly area is easily accessible from anywhere in Dubai. There’s plenty to do – from a wide selection of beachside dining and shopping to watersports such as parasailing and wakeboarding.
There’s also banana boat rides and even a train for the kids to enjoy. If you’d prefer to keep your feet dry, you can take a camel ride along the beach – and all with the iconic city landscape in the background. Plus, there’s a 600m running track, outdoor gym and beach volleyball court if you’re keen to work up a sweat. Or take in an outdoor yoga class to get your day started the way you like. If your visit coincides with the other end of the day, there’s a good chance of encountering some live entertainment to get your excitement levels up.
