The Jumeirah Beach Park is a great place to bring friends and family, with a great deal of open space for a little soccer, volleyball courts, and warm water. It's also a great place for stunning views of the city!
While spending a lazy afternoon basking in the sun here (in the balmy December weather of Dubai), this man and his two camels were slowly meandering down the beach.Bikini clad tourists are in stark contrast to the covered camel man quietly riding along the beach. He spoke to no one. I imagine he was trying to make a living off the tourists by offering you a ride on the second camel but I can't be sure as he spoke to no one as he rode down the beach and I never saw anyone ride the other camel. Maybe, he too, was out enjoying the beautiful beach weather in his own way. The contrast of the Old Dubai with the modern new Dubai really jumped out at me.
