This long, pristine stretch of white sand, off Jumeirah Rd and next to a mosque, is superclean and has lots of activities, including kitesurfing, beach tennis, beach volleyball and kayaking. There are showers, wi-fi, toilets and changing facilities, plus lots of food trucks and cafes. Great views of the Burj Al Arab. It gets very busy on Friday and Saturday when a seaside market with crafts and gifts sets up.
