Jumeirah Beach Park
Dubai, Old and NewThe 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.

Park + Beach = Bark?
If you just can’t decide between the beach or the park, why settle for one or the other if you don’t have to? The beautifully landscaped 12 hectares of Jumeriah Beach Park is just the answer to such holiday dilemmas – the fluttering palm trees, white, sugary sand, turquoise water, hilly green grass and facilities all around will soothe your holiday worries away. There’s Arab family fun in the sun for everyone at Jumeriah Beach Park. Mama will love the clean toilets, hot showers, dressing rooms and lifeguards on duty. The little ones - the play areas, volleyball courts and baba - the picnic tables and barbecue pits. The recreational interplay of family dynamics and cultures makes for fascinating people watching. Saturday is reserved for ladies and children only.

Everyone is Invited to Dubai’s Beach Party
Who doesn’t love a day at the beach? Few beaches have views as amazing as this one, with the Persian Gulf and the World Islands in one direction and, behind you, the stunning Burj Al Arab soaring into the sky. No wonder it’s one of the most popular spots in Dubai, filled with visitors from every corner of the world and locals too, enjoying the sun and warm waters of the gulf. Excellent facilities, including a children’s play area make the park a great option for those traveling with little ones. When you’ve had your fill of building sand castles and splashing in the surf, get a burger or kebab at one of the many food options nearby.
