Being in Dubai, one thing I never want to miss is beaches. Dubai more known for its skyscraper buildings and transformation over the years also owns some of the best beaches in the region. JBR (Jumeriah Beach Residence) open beach is one of the beach which attracts millions of tourists every year. This clean beach equipped with plenty of facilities, including changing rooms, showers and toilets. For kids, it has a separate splash zone or better we can call it offshore water park. Plenty of restaurants around makes it more attractive and friendly. But to mention here that alcohol is available only in the hotels.
How to reach
Going by a personal Car or Taxi is the easiest thing you can pick since its quite famous place. Though it is also accessible by metro easily. If you are travelling by metro, you need to get down at Jumeriah Lake Towers metro station and take the marina exit. Here you need to take a walk of around 1 Km to access the beach. The walk is pleasant and scenic.
The Counter, Sushi Art, The Steak Bar, House of Curry, Eat Greek are just some of the names to count. There are plenty of other well-known options you definitely can try.
If you are a movie lover, Reel Cinemas is just at the beach to entertain you with the latest releases.
If you are shopaholic, there are plenty of retail outlets also to treat you.
On a regular basis, JBR authority organizes events near to the beach. Beach sport, Night Street for Shopping and Eat, Music Nights are some of the names to count. You need to have a tracking of JBR calendar. You can like JBR FB page to be updated; https://www.facebook.com/thewalkatjbr
