Should you decide to head for Dubai for a HOT Holiday in the sun then there is a good chance that Jumeirah Beach could be your final destination.
Situated along the coast, Jumeirah Beach is home to some of the best hotels in Dubai – including the world famous Burj Al Arab – as well as a stunning stretch of white sand where you can relax at leisure and make the most of the sun.
As with other areas of the Emirates, Jumeirah Beach benefits from fine weather throughout the year, with clear blue skies and high temperatures being very much the norm.
If anything, the summer months can be too hot for some with temperatures that run into the 40s, with plenty of people instead electing to visit outside the traditional holiday periods when things are a more manageable 20-25° instead.
When it comes to the beach, there are few in Dubai that can match the stretch along Jumeirah, which is regarded as one of the most exclusive spots in arguably the go-to destination in the UAE.
As well as being able to relax at leisure, you can take a dip in stunningly clear waters or indulge in the various different watersports than can be enjoyed off the coast.
Nearby, there are various restaurants that serve a range of cuisine from around the world whilst if you want to do some shopping, then you will be close to one of the biggest malls in Dubai where you can access a huge selection of famous brands.
Hit the shops
From Jumeirah Beach you’ll be able to access two of the biggest malls in the Emirate, including the Dubai Mall. Home to more than 1,000 stores, the Mall has been the most visiting shopping destination in the world on more than one occasion and is the place to go if you want to grab a bargain to take back home.
The Walk is a promenade that runs alongside Jumeirah Beach where you’ll find all manner of retail and food opportunities. From designer boutiques to fine dining aplenty, you’ll be left somewhat spoilt for choice if you take a stroll along The Walk.
A short ride away from Jumeirah Beach is the Burj Khalifa; the tallest structure in the world. A trip to the At The Top observation desk provides astonishing views out across the city, with refreshments being available for visitors.
Wild Wadi Waterpark
One of the main waterparks in the Emirates, Wild Wadi sits near to Jumeirah Beach and features 30 different rides that are suitable for visitors of all ages, It means young and old alike can enjoy a fun-filled day riding the slides or relaxing in the pool.
The Palm Jumeirah juts out from the Dubai coastline and is home to a wide range of leisure activities, which include the huge Aquaventure Waterpark and an aquarium. Access is easy from the mainland thanks to a monorail system.
It couldn’t be much further away from the kind of thing you would expect to do in the heat of Dubai, which might be part of the reason why a trip to Ski Dubai is so appealing. As well as hitting the slopes on the first indoor ski resort in the Middle East, you could try tobogganing, ride slides and even meet penguins – all whilst the sun shines down outside.
