Jumeirah Beach

WE will be staying at a hotel in Media City, but want to visit the beach everyday.

I understand that many of the hotels have private beaches. Is that really the case?

How can we get access to the beach?

Your right, the hotels do have private beaches so you have 3 options:

You can go to one of the hotels and pay to use their facilities

You can go to one of the Beach clubs like Jumierah Beach club

or you can go to one of the dwindling public beaches - there is at the moment a very small one between the Hilton and a private beach club and one down by the Dubai Marine Beach Resort - be aware tho all get VERY busy at weekends (Fri Sat).

Which hotel are you staying at because some hotels do have arrangements with beach hotels for use of facilities....

We're staying at Radisson, Media City.

Do you know if all the beach hotels allow you to pay to use their beaches? Any idea how much? It seems like it would be a reasonable idea!

I got prices from Jumeirah Beach Hotel AED 400 PER PERSON. For me this is very expensive.

Jumeirah Hilton Hotel AED 175 PER PERSON and Le Meridian AED 200 PER PERSON. P rices also depends on weekdays and weekends.

Madinat Jumeirah is currently running a special for AED495 for a family(2 adults 2 kidz)

With all the hotels you have to phone them in advance and make a booking because hotel guests get preferance.

The nearest beach hotel to you would probably be the Meridien Mina-Siyahi/Westin (Which are interconnected and next to each other). The rates are probably lower at the moment but they used to charge 175 per person on weekdays to use their pool/beach facilities. The Royal Mirage does day beach rates in their low seasons- that would be opposite media city too. Nearby are the Madinat Jumeirah and Ritz Carlton Hotels.

There are also free beaches on the Umm Suqueim stretch in Jumeirah, next to the Jumeirah Beach Hotel. They run for quite a while with the 'kite' beach being esp popular. If you go where the locals play football on the beach, there are showers and basic changing facilities to use too.

There is also a free beach opposite The Jumeirah Beach Residence's Walk which has beautiful water. There are also restaurants etc. nearby to go to if you want some refreshments/lunch or to use their restrooms etc (but not during ramadan of course).

Depending on how long you are here for, it might be worth investing in a cooler, some matts and an umbrella from the Mall of Emirates Carre Four and just going to the free beach. Or if you want the added comfort, then using an existing hotel's facilities are obviously the best option- but quite pricey.
