Mamzar Beach Park - Hidden paradise away from mass tourism – Private beach park with a charge
Al Mamzar Beach Park is a beach park in the north of Dubai in the district of Deira. It is situated very close to Dubai International Airport.
The whole oval-shaped beach park is divided into five beach sections which are numbered from 1 to 5. On the outside of the oval are the beaches, while on the inside there are grass areas where you can find shady spots under trees, as well as numerous BBQ areas, sports activities and a pool area. The many palm trees here give the beach a touch of Caribbean flair.
At the main entrance is a fast food restaurant with an amusement arcade where you can buy reasonably priced food. Each of the sections of the beach also has snack bars for when you are hungry or thirsty.
The Beach Park is very popular with the locals at the weekend and costs 5 AED entrance fee. Families and groups especially like to come here to spend a nice, relaxed day at the beach, on one of the grass areas, at the pool or in the so-called chalets. These can also be hired for the day and are ideal for families, as they are equipped with showers, toilets and a small garden with a BBQ.
Parasols and sun-loungers can be hired at the beach and, if you get here early enough, you might even find a cosy space on one of the seats with tables and parasols. The park is very spacious and you will always find a quiet spot here.
Mamzar Beach Park does not have any water-sports facilities, but instead there are plenty of other activities on offer at the five beach sections. There are lots of playgrounds, volleyball courts and football pitches and the park is above all famous for zip-lining. In the grass areas there is also a skate park, some basketball courts and further playgrounds.
