Pristine white sand beaches and sparkling clear waters have continued to be Dubaiâ€™s biggest assets in the tourism arena. Amidst the gigantic buildings and sprawling man-made islands, this Arabian paradise takes good care of its rich marine resources to endlessly attract every beach-going and sea-loving tourist in the world.
All efforts paid off as CNN Travel lists Dubaiâ€™s popular Jumeirah Beach as one of the best city beaches in the world. Conveniently located in the bustling metropolis, the Jumeirah Beach shares the spotlight with beaches from famed summer destinations like Rio de Janeiro, Honolulu, Sydney, Miami and others.
Jumeirah Beach scored high points in CNN Travelâ€™s standards for food and drinks, swimming safety, and party factor. Named after the emirateâ€™s Jumeirah district, the beach is lined with large hotels, resorts, restaurants, and residences; which include equally remarkable tourist baits like the iconic 7-star Burj Al Arab, the stunning Jumeirah Beach Hotel, the fun-filled Wild Wadi Waterpark, and the old-fashioned Madinat Jumeirah hotel and shopping complex.
Blessed with long stretch of golden sand as well as landscaped gardens, the Jumeirah Beach spells comfort and convenience to every tourist, resident or local in Dubai. It has a nearby park that offers a childrenâ€™s play area, barbecue facilities, picnic tables, food kiosks, showers, and changing rooms. Beach amenities like sunbeds and umbrellas are also available for rent here.
With the development of the Jumeirah Corniche in full swing, people will have more reasons to frequent the metropolitan shores of Dubai. Starting from the one end of the Jumeirah Beach Road near Dubai Marine Beach Resort extending up to Burj Al Arab, this 14-kilometer long project opens in October 2014 to become Dubaiâ€™s premier social and sports hub. The corniche adds more energy to Jumeirahâ€™s already lively beach scene by providing a perfect venue for fitness enthusiasts to go jogging, walking, biking, rowing, or swimming. Amidst picturesque landscaping and lighting, it will have a walkway, a jogging track, benches under the shade, commercial kiosks, and public facilities for everyone.
