There are so many different places in Dubai to relax poolside or by the beach, and we have narrowed down a few of our favourites to share with you which accommodate friends and family of all ages.

Kite Surf Beach

Probably one of Dubai’s liveliest beaches, this free public beachside is a particular favourite for kite surfers. There are so many water activities on offer here, such as renting kayaks, paddle boards, and wakeboarding, with a beautiful view of the iconic Burj Al Arab to admire. There are many restaurants and food trucks along the 14km track to choose from.

Located: Jumeirah 3, near Jumeirah Beach Hotel

Cove Beach

This luxurious beach spot is more on the pricey side, but the service, decor and exclusivity is worth it for a special occasion. Enjoy your many choices of food and beverages while you relax on your sunbed, and can even upgrade to a double bed. You are spoilt with options here and the service is impeccable.

Located: Jumeirah Beach Hotel

Secret Beach/ Black Palace Beach

A free public beach is a perfect place to chill out, with views of the Atlantis and Burj Al Arab. This beach is usually less crowded than others as it does not provide restaurants and facilities like La Mer or Kite Beach, so you are bound to find a quiet spot to relax and unwind. People usually refer to this spot as a ‘secret’ beach because of the hidden entrance that many usually miss.

Located: Al Sufouh Road

Zero Gravity

Otherwise known as Justin Bieber’s favourite hangout when he’s in town, this beach club is a thriving party place with an infinity pool overlooking the beach, known for the copious amounts of instagram’s of people posing in the see-through glass wall of the pool… or you never were actually at Zero Gravity. This place gives off serious Ibiza vibes, and is ideal for a good time with friends.

Located: Marina, Al Sufouh Road

La Mer

This beachside provides so much for all your family and friends. There are shops, restaurants, playgrounds, and water activities. As well as having so much to offer visitors, La Mer has a beautiful aesthetic, such as multi-coloured shower cabins, graffiti artwork, surfboards placed in the sand, which all makes for an ideal backdrop for an Instagram picture or two.

Located:Jumeirah 1

Drift Beach

Another lavish beach club that offers exquisite service and a chic, casual atmosphere is a fabulous place for family and friends to hang out for the day. Many have referred to the serene setting as “paradise” and once you visit here, it is easy to see why.

Located:Royal Mirage, One & Only.
