Jumeirah Beach Park

Squeezed in between the sea and Jumeirah Road near the suburb’s southern end, Jumeirah Beach Park is easily the nicest park and public beach in Dubai – wildly popular both with city residents and with sand-starved tourists staying in city-centre hotels. The beach itself is large enough to soak up the crowds, with a fine wide swathe of white sand manned with lifeguards and equipped with loungers and parasols, while the pleasantly wooded strip of park behind has lots of shaded grass for picnics, barbecue facilities, a couple of cafés and a well-equipped play area for kids.
