Dubai is home to some incredible, amazing and spectacular beaches – each with their own character and style. If you’re looking for a quieter spot – somewhere to walk, relax and really take in the beautiful scenery of the Arabian Gulf – make your way to Sunset Beach. Its wonderful golden sands are popular, but never get too crowded, and as one of the widest bays on the coast, it’s ideal for taking a jog or stroll as you enjoy the gorgeous views.
Sunset beach is beautiful at any time of day, but its name reflects the particularly spectacular light show that occurs just as the setting sun glimmers across the crystal waters of the Gulf and catches the fine sands of the beach. It’s the perfect, tranquil, peaceful place to be at the end of the day – just to witness the majesty of nature and feel at one with the world.
When the swell is up, Sunset Beach is also a great place to surf – and Dubai has plenty of water sports clubs from where you can hire all the equipment you will need. If that doesn’t sound like your kind of thing, don’t worry – this is also the ideal location simply to watch the best surfers catching the waves and showing off their moves. From here you can also easily spot the kitesurfers at the nearby Kite Beach, as they surf the breeze and perform their breathtaking tricks and stunts. This is a sport that is practically as thrilling and exhilarating to watch as it is to do – and Sunset Beach is perfect for spectators.
For all its peace and tranquillity, Sunset Beach is conveniently located just behind Sunset Mall. Thanks to its friendly, welcoming and relaxed atmosphere, it is a fantastic place simply to spend some time – whether you’re hanging out with friends or family, or enjoying some quiet time alone. Its beautiful scenery – from the perfect azure waters to the majestic sail of the iconic Burj Al Arab, shimmering atop its own man-made island off in the distance – all adds to the rich atmosphere and distinctive ambiance of this magical place.
