If you are planning on traveling to Dubia this Christmas then this is a guide to Dubai’s iconic attractions you must visit before you leave the Arab City.
Dubai is home to some of the best beaches in the UAE. There are 7 exotic beaches that you can chill out at this Christmas. They include the Jumeirah Beach Park, Umm Suqeim Beach, Al Mamzar Beach Park, JBR Open Beach (Russian Beach), Kite Beach (Wollongong Beach), Black Palace Beach, and Royal Island Beach Club.
Of all the aforementioned, Umm Suqeim is our choice destination beach for your Christmas vacation in Dubia. It’s appropriate for family visits too as long as you visit the beach early in the morning on weekdays.
Umm Suqeim Beach is an attractive sandy expanse known for its stunning views of the Burj Al Arab. It is a very popular destination with kite surfers. This beach provides shelters, changing huts and shower facilities and is very popular with Jumeirah residents and Western expatriates. It is a free public beach open 24 hours a day. Since there are no cafés or restaurants on the beach, it is recommended you bring your own snacks and drinks. During the weekdays, the park is only open to women and children. The beach gets crowded during the weekends, so it is best visited early in the morning. Umm Suqeim Beach is 10 miles (16 kilometers) from the downtown area and easily accessible by car or public transport. The nearest metro station is First Gulf Bank on the Red Line.
There are a number of man-made entertainment parks dotted around the city that will ensure an action packed day out for all the family for you this Christmas.
