Dubai is not only home to the tallest building, biggest man-made island, amazing amusement parks and seaside entertainment facilities in the world, it is also home to some of the best beaches! Jumeirah Open Beach is the #2 Beach Sights in Dubai according to Lonely Planet. What's amazing about Jumeirah Open Beach? Well, it has fine white sand, it is FREE, with crystal clear Arabian sea, stunning view of Dubai's skyscrapers and pretty much next door to Burj AL Arab, one of the very few 7-stars hotel in the world!

As you can see from the map, Jumeirah Open Beach has the best location, it is just a few minutes away from Burj Dubai, Mall of Emirates, and even the largest man-made island - The Palm Jumeirah.

But wait there's more, Jumeriah Beach also plays host to upscale residential areas and hotels, private clubs and beach resorts. The beach has a golf course, deep-sea fishing packages, volleyball courts, and offers water sports too like scuba-diving, water skiing and windsurfing.

I may not be wearing the proper outfit for the beach because of our afternoon itinerary, but I sure did enjoy Jumeirah Open Beach.. and with that view what else could I ask for?
