The Best Dating Spots in Dubai

Updated: 7 December 2017
Dubai is becoming a more and more popular spot for couples to visit for a romantic getaway. Once in Dubai, you’ll soon realize that the city caters to those who have the highest expectations for date ideas. From romantic settings to exciting food adventures, here are the best ideas for dating spots in the ever-sparkling city of Dubai.

Jumeirah Beach

One of Dubai’s favorite beaches, Jumeirah is the place to go for a dip in the warm waters during the day or a romantic stroll on its clean white sand in the evening. With picturesque views of the city skyline and the sparkling ocean, with delicious food and drink stalls and a lively atmosphere, Jumeirah Beach is always the perfect idea for a relaxing date spot.

Mamzar Beach and Corniche

Although not as big as Jumeirah Beach, Mamzar Beach is a popular spot for couples because of its quietness and the delicious food stalls on the corniche. Even if you don’t get out and take a swim or walk in the sand, couples are always milling and lounging around the food stalls, which were made famous for their crispy spicy shrimp, hot karak tea, and sweet pastry shops.

City Walk

A mostly outdoor shopping boulevard, still sparkling and glitzy because of its relatively new completion, City Walk is the perfect place to stroll along one of Dubai’s hottest boulevards. The top-class restaurants, boutique shops, and the always entertaining people-watching opportunities make this date spot perfect for couples on any given day of the week.

BBQ in the desert

Arguably the best place to go to for a uniquely Dubai date-night, having a small BBQ or picnic in the desert is one of the best ideas for couples who want a romantic evening out in nature. Most couples in Dubai will pull up to the side of the desert along any one of the city’s main roads and have a romantic meal with the setting sun or under the starry skies; however beware as it can get extremely crowded during the weekends with couples trying to get the best picnic spot in the sand.
