Lonely Planet review
This lush landscaped park is one of Dubai’s hidden gems. It stretches across a couple of very pleasant kilometres on a small headland at the mouth of Khor al-Mamzar. Situated on an attractive inlet, just across from Sharjah, there are lovely white sandy beaches, a swimming pool, barbecues, and kiosks. For kids there are also plenty of open spaces and play areas and a wooden castle. Lifeguards are on duty between 8am and 6pm on at least one of the small beaches. Friday is busy, but during the week you can have the place to yourself.
