The area
Neighbourhood: Jumeirah
Years ago, before the skyscrapers, before the 12-lane highway, there was only Jumeirah. In fact, when the UAE was formed, its rulers signed the agreement in Union House, at the very start of Jumeirah Beach Road. Often called “The Beverly Hills” of Dubai, a drive down Beach Road reveals one enormous, lavish villa after another. Originally residential-only neighbourhoods, they are now also home to an array of cafes, smart boutiques, and art galleries. Home to one of Dubai’s few public beaches, this recently renovated area includes a new boardwalk, running and walking track, with changing facilities and cafes along the way. Another landmark, Jumeirah Mosque, is the only mosque in Dubai that can be entered by non-Muslims. As part of the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding, the mosque hosts regular tours and talks about Islam, as part of an “Open Doors, Open Minds” program. A wonderful way to understand more about the UAE and Islam.

    Love it
    It is my favourite beach in Dubai. It is clean and safe. Weekends can be very crowded and is stressful with parking unless you go very early morning. There are public showers and toilets but not everywhere. There are areas where you can swim at night too. Better take an umbrella with you but be mindful since it can get very windy sometimes.

    Kite beach at sunset is special
    I usually go here during sunset for a walk and a bite to eat. It's buzzing in the evenings especially when the weather is good. If you manage to get a careem bike that would elevate your experience but even walking and getting your steps in is a fun experience with friends!

    Nice
    Very nice place and its free. Its an open beach for everyone. And they have also some shops and restaurants to eat there as well. You can enjoy swimming all day long, but they will not allow to swim like around 6pm.

    Beautiful Beach
    Absolutely beautiful beach. Very well maintained and very clean. Lots of food and drink options available (Starbucks, Cinnabon, etc). Lovely beach huts selling clothing, bags and jewellry. Changing & Shower Rooms available. We opted for the beach day pass at 120aed each. Beach towels, sun lounger and parasol included. Staff brilliant. Extremely impressed. My teenage daughter really loved it. Cycle track and walking track too.

    Lovely beach
    The beach is a must visit in Dubai. This is a huge wide stretch of beach and Kite Beach is a hub of restaurants and activities, including volleyball, padel tennis and more. You can take your own sun seats or pay to hotel sun beds. There is a bike track, walking track and the sea is generally very lovely and calm.
    Thanks for the wonderful review, Nicholas. Our team will be thrilled reading your kind words! Kite Beach Team

    Lots to see and do at Kite Beach
    this is a beautiful area in Dubai with plenty to do on the beach. Lots of food trucks and small restaurant type options to eat. There are many activities on the beach as well as a skate park and trampolines. Walk along the track for miles day and night .Beautiful sea views and views of the Burj Al Arab.

    Family trip to Kite beach
    Famous Kite beach! It is very popular and does get crowded, but not so much to ruin the experience. Great views of iconic Dubai buildings and a lovely sandy beach. Life guards on duty and loads of facilities, shops, and places to eat. Only negative is that the shower, toilet and changing facilities could improve.

    Nice clean beach with Burj Al Arab views
    This was Day 5 of my Dubai Trip and we started by visiting beach in the morning. I didn’t have much expectations but I was surprised with the clear and pristine waters, less crowd and Burj Al Arab views. We didn’t have much time to spend here and also it was a bit hot but I liked this beach.

    Great beach to relax
    Great beach to relax while in Dubai. It is a huge beach and you dont feel the cramped. After winter time till july, sea temparatures are quite nice. During and post summer, water is too warm for my liking.

Very family friendly. Book your beach spot online with sole mio so you don’t have to worry about chairs, towels, and umbrellas. They even had a soccer ball for my son to play with.

If you want to visit an open beach area in Dubai, go to Kite Beach. It is near Burj Al Arab and it has many cafes and food trailers along the coast. It is clean and well maintained for a Free Spot.
