Best Private Beaches You Need To Hit Up This Weekend

Grab your buckets and spades!


Nothing says "day off" better than playing around in the sand or floating about in the sea.

And we're extremely lucky in Dubai - there are so many fabulous beaches about the only hard part is picking which one to go to! But let's be honest, you can't beat relaxing on a sun lounger for comfort..a step above lying on the sand anyway! (We all have our issues with the sand).

The following spots all have top class beaches for you to enjoy not to mention some of the most comfortable loungers - check 'em out!

Lacking serious funding?

Not a problem, if you head to Barasti Beach, you can use their sun loungers for free! Just make sure you get there bright and early because they fill up quickly!
