Dubai's main beaches run along Jumeira Road. In truth, it is one long beach divided up by hotels and private clubs, interspaced by a few public access beaches.
The Jumeira beaches have soft white sand that slip into the shallow warm turquoise waters of the Arabian Gulf. Hotel beaches are very well maintained with luxury facilities. This usually means lawns and swimming pools with beachside food and beverage service.
The public has access to use private or hotel beach clubs with daily rates that vary from $10 to $50.
There is also a public beach at Al Mamzar Park on the Deira side of the Creek. The public facilities include playgrounds, barbecue sites, food kiosks, and picnic areas for families.
January temperatures are pleasant so the beaches are full of Europeans. Summer temperatures can reach 45-50 degrees centigrade with equally high humidity.
