“Dubai offers beaches for all tastes and budgets and, depending on the length of your layover, most are within reach of the airport,” CNN Money reports.
“The sparkling waters of the Arabian Gulf are closest at Al Mamzar Beach Park, a series of sandy horseshoe coves a few miles north of Dubai’s airport.
There, you’ll find warm water, shady umbrellas, and a selection of eateries and green spaces. It’s worth bearing in mind Mondays and Wednesdays are for women only. “South of the airport the closest option is Jumeirah Open Beach, a wide sandy shore open to the public. Further down the strip are Jumeirah Beach Park and Kite Beach, a kitesurfers’ haven near the Burj Al Arab,” the report adds.
