Buzzing with action and crowded with people playing beach games and water sports, Dubai's beaches are not the quaint turfs of sand and sun that you'd find in other parts of the world. They're action hotspots and definitely an experience you won't get anywhere else.

Dubai has both public and private beaches. Many belong to hotels and are accessible to non-guests for a hefty fee. Some of the public beaches also charge a fee, although it is nominal. Unlike the common perception, at most beaches in Dubai, it is acceptable to wear swimsuits.
