  1. Dubai has been on my list for a long time. I plan to go there for a few days this year. Therefore, I would love to use your tips. Such a great guide to JBR Beach. I like that there are various street food options, food trucks, kiosks. I want to try Camel Ride on the beach.

  2. I love Dubai and its JBR! The changing/ shower areas look so cool, there seems to be every type of activity for kids and adults. Dubai certainly knows to entice the beach lovers! 🙂

  3. On our last visit to Dubai we stayed by the JBR Beach and headed that way often. Although I was never there for morning yoga! The strangest thing we saw was camel rides on the beach. We loved the sunsets and all the action at night. And it was awesome when we saw the New Years fireworks from the beach. I would love to go on that Ferris wheel for a panoramic view.

  4. JBR-The Beach offers some exciting activities for the tourists. Though I am not a beach person, specially crowded beaches, but I would definitely love to enjoy open air theatre. This is only thing that attracts me here.

  5. I have been to Dubai twice but unfortunately haven’t got the opportunity to visit JBR beach. The activity on offer sound exciting. I would love to indulge in the open air cinema experience. It is great to see that they have changing rooms and shower area. Will plan it the next time I am there.

  6. As a testament to how little I know about Dubai, I had no idea it had a beach! The turquoise water looks beautiful, though–given how hot Dubai infamously is, I’m not surprised it’s popular! The open-air cinema sounds like a lot of fun, I’d love to check that out.

  7. Wow! The JBR Beach Dubai sounds like a place to be.. with so much to do it is a perfect respite from the bustling cityscape. It’s amazing that the beach holds so many entertainment activities like open-air cinema, street performances, and music along with some mouthwatering food and shopping options. Thanks for this wonderful information we will make sure we don’t miss a visit during our Dubai trip.

  8. I haven’t been to Dubai but if I were to go, this would be on top of my must-see list. I love that there are so many attractions to choose from. I am a beach person but the activities make this a main attraction but not just for the beach alone.

  9. This is a really great beach in Dubai. Sadly the one time I was there, it was mid day on a scorching hot summer day. All the more reason to visit again I guess.

  10. That’s a beach with a lot of vibe. The changing rooms look interesting & very functional. Would be fun to attend an open air event here. That said, its not my kinda beach. I’d rather head to a secluded, romantic one with hardly any people!!! Lolz..

    1. yes you are correct there are many people at this beach when you enter, but when you walk and go far away from entrance, there are hardly any people if you love isolated stuff. But for quieter place, you need to walk a little.

  11. It’s a beautiful beach and looks like so much to do. Hubby was looking over my shoulder and was immediately drawn to the expensive car on the Walk. You’ve really done an amazing job of featuring Dubai and I’m so looking forward to going to see it including this beach 🙂

  12. I actually had no idea that JBR Beach Dubai is the most popular hangout of Dubai! I was walking there while I was there and I was surprise how clean the water was! Dubai is so amazing! I cant wait to go back there one day and explore more!

  13. You had me at open air cinema! We have something similar here in Vancouver too although not as nicely located on a beach. I’m a huge beach bum too so will definitely be adding this to my list of things to do. And I’ve heard all about Dubai’s luxury car scene. The Walk must be eye-opening!

  14. I had no idea that there were so many things to do on the beach in Dubai! It seems like Dubai is a nonstop adventure! Personally, I would like to see those fireworks, though I know they are not every day. I’d like the open-air cinema as well–nothing like seeing a movie at the beach!

  15. It looks like a great place for spending your time with so many activities. I would love to experience open-air cinema and dancing for sure. Thanks for sharing!

  16. I’m completely sold on the JBR Beach Dubai! I’m dying for some sunshine right now, so reading this made me so jealous! Nice to know they offer free yoga on the beach, and that Turkish ice-cream sounds wonderful. Bring on summer!

  17. Fantastic in-depth post. This beach sounds like a fun filled packed beach with many things to do. I’d love to see the fashion show and then take a camel ride into the sunset.

  18. Wow this place has it ALL! Looks like there is something for everyone of all ages. I haven’t made it to Dubai yet but it’s been on my bucket list for years. I pinned this post for future reference, thank you!

  19. Funny how beach is not something I associate with when it comes to the UAE despite it being surround by water! And I’m sure it makes a good respite from the heat. I can see from the photos men with their shirts off and women in bikinis. I guess that’s ok? I was always under the impression that we have to cover up somewhat.

  20. I love it! The exercise equipment on the beach reminds me so much of Venice Beach back in California. There’s a section of the beach called “Muscle Beach” where these insanely ripped body builders work out on the sand. I love the idea of watching fireworks on the beach. I did that once while visiting Lake Tahoe and thought it was a super neat experience!
