The Beach, Dubai

4.5
#174 of 366 in Outdoors in Dubai
The Beach by Meraas is the only place in Dubai where you can feel the sand between your toes moments before diving into a shopping spree at one of our many handpicked outlets.

With the sandy shores and cool blue waters at its doors, The Beach epitomizes urban living - from entertainment to shopping, from fine dining to weekly markets - you really can have it all.

Sitting comfortably over 300,000 square feet, opposite JBR, The Beach is a go-to destination for locals, residents and tourists alike. Offering the community a host of outdoor activities, fitness facilities, shops, cinemas, restaurants, a water park and a play area for kids - The Beach is the ultimate day out.

So whether you want to go for a jog on our purpose built running track, have lunch at one of the 45 cafes or restaurants, catch a movie on the region’s largest open-air beach cinema screen, shop at one of our unique retailers or simply kick-back on the sand and catch some sun - head down to The Beach.

With new events, such as yoga on the lawn and celebrity pop-up shops, happening all the time, there’s never a dull moment at The Beach.

  • This outdoor place is so lively, a great place for adults and kids alike. Kids can use their bikes and scooters, and there is a lot of games and some rides for them. My kids are 6 and 8, very active, ...  more »
  • Beautiful new and clean neighborhood to enjoy the beach comfortably with friends or family. Many activities available for children and adults, bars, restaurants, shops... and a nice view of the world's largest wheel. A tram takes you from the subway to the beach.

  • It's Dubai Marina beach. Nice, wide clean. Top of services. In front they are building the Dubai wheel for next year's Expo and on the left begins the Palma. Also on the left is the Vela, the Burj Al Arab, the most luxurious hotel in the world. The sea is very nice to me did not like the go-go of continuous boats. Also the beach is very busy although still tidy and honestly in my opinion in Dubai there is better

  • Great beach for families. Great diversity of people from all over the world. Wonderful shops and tons of restaurants. You can take it slow and relax on the beach or enjoy water activities. They have regular events from concerts to races and athletic activities. And all of the facilities are spotless.
  • Awesome beach for an afternoon/evening for families if you want to hang out, eat nice food, play in the sand a little. Toilet facilities are a little lacking in the men's department... 2 cubicles between everyone at the beach is a bit shocking.
  • Nice place to walk around during the evening time. Nice vibe with wonderful places to eat
  • Probably the most successful project by Meraas to date. There are a ton of delicious restaurants and nice shops on the walk at the The Beach. There are plenty of souvenir vendors. On the weekends in the winter there is usually a variety of entertainment options to choose from.
  • The best outdoor place in Dubai. Fantastic offer of beach, cinema, great restaurants and superb for a walk.
