Pick the right beach
This is crucial. Dubai has no shortage of beaches that come in so many different styles, so look for the one that best suits you. Sure, public beaches here are beautiful and full of fun activities, but if you want to consume alcohol, head to a private hotel beach. This also applies if you want to do water sports or hand out at a beach with sun beds. Every beach here offers something different, and it’s best to do some research before heading out.
