The area
Neighbourhood: Jumeirah
Years ago, before the skyscrapers, before the 12-lane highway, there was only Jumeirah. In fact, when the UAE was formed, its rulers signed the agreement in Union House, at the very start of Jumeirah Beach Road. Often called “The Beverly Hills” of Dubai, a drive down Beach Road reveals one enormous, lavish villa after another. Originally residential-only neighbourhoods, they are now also home to an array of cafes, smart boutiques, and art galleries. Home to one of Dubai’s few public beaches, this recently renovated area includes a new boardwalk, running and walking track, with changing facilities and cafes along the way. Another landmark, Jumeirah Mosque, is the only mosque in Dubai that can be entered by non-Muslims. As part of the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding, the mosque hosts regular tours and talks about Islam, as part of an “Open Doors, Open Minds” program. A wonderful way to understand more about the UAE and Islam.

Been here few time during my visit in Dubai September last year. I encourage you to go really early in the morning because there is no humidity! Perfect for swimming. But getting a taxi is extremely hard! Also bring a hat and water if you decided to walk around because it gets hoooot.

Beach is beautiful, easy to get to, with lots of amenities nearby.

I spent 2.5 days (out of a 6 day trip) here. Easy to grab Careem to get there, and fairly easily to hail a taxi at off peak times when you're ready to leave.

There are 2 separate sides, to the right is the public beach and left is private where you can pay ~$40 to rent a towel, lounger and find shade if you like. I did this each time I went because it meant I didn't have to bring anything with me and it was extremely convenient.

For some like be wondering what to wear, literally any bathing suit with any amount of coverage is totally fine. You'll see some more modest attire but also lots of thong bikinis and everything in between.

It was our last day in Dubai and I wanted to see a beach! Kite beach didn’t fall any short. It has a California vibe! With lots of food truck and things to do if y have kids!! It also has beach chairs that could be rented on the beach!! With a beautiful skyline of the Burj Al Arab for incredible pictures!! Water was crystal clear but a little rough waters!! Nothing the less has plenty of amenities to eat and admire the beauty of Dubai!! Would definitely recommend!!!

It seems that on each trip to Dubai we find time to visit Kite Beach.
Firstly, it is a very clean beach and very sandy, with no rocks or stones to worry about.
Then, it is also possible to rent an umbrella, beach chairs and beach towels.
It is also easy to find parking as there is both on street and paid parking available.
So if you are visiting Dubai and you want a nice clean beach I strongly suggest that you try Kite Beach, you will not be sorry.

We had been to a few of the beaches like La Mer, but our children took us to this one. Much less crowded and easy to find a semiprivate spot. We parked about a block away and it was free. Nice long promenade to walk along and the beach is wide and all sand.

Very nice beach with public washrooms and lots of food options. Only downside right now is that they are doing construction on a bike path so there was work going on and it was a bit noisy. It’s a bit of a walk to the nearest metro station but a taxi wasn’t too expensive.
