Summary of the Beach Inspectors
Burj Al Arab Beach is the perfect beach for all beach holidaymakers. It is divided into a surfing and a swimming area which means that water-sport enthusiasts, families and couples will enjoy it here. There is also a restaurant, public toilets, showers, changing rooms, a promenade for running and other sporting activities and even a solar-powered charging station for smartphones. The beach is equally popular with locals and holidaymakers and offers a great view of the Burj Al Arab, the landmark of Dubai and one of the most luxurious and expensive hotels in the world.

Burj Al Arab Beach - a beach with a view of Dubai’s most famous landmark

To the right of Burj Al Arab is the sandy beach of the same name which is about 900 metres long and in some parts up to 200 metres wide. It can be very easily reached via the Jumeirah Road, one of Dubai’s main roads. There are several car parking possibilities, but these require payment and are often full.

The short name of the beach is Burj Beach and it is divided into two areas, the boundaries of which are shown by a yellow flag.

To the left of the flag is the surfing area which gets busy particularly in the afternoon and which is suitable for beginners as well as more advanced surfers. Although there is no outlet directly at the beach, nearby is a surfboard hire outlet which also offers courses for beginners.

To the right of the surfing area is the official swimming area where water-sport activities are not allowed and where you can therefore really enjoy swimming undisturbed. A mixture of families and couples are to be found here looking for a relaxed day at the beach.

Although there is only one restaurant here, the beach has lots of public amenities such as toilets, showers, changing rooms and even a solar-powered charging station for your smartphone. At this so-called “smart palm” you can not only charge your mobile, but also charge your own batteries by spreading out in the shade under the solar palm tree.

The promenade directly at the beach is ideal for running because of its surface which is gentle on your knees. There is also some exercise equipment here where you can use up your energy after a relaxed day at the beach.

Burj Al Arab Beach is very popular with everybody and you will find a mixture of nationalities here, which gives this beach its own quite special charm.
