Here’s a short video of this fantastic beach.  The water was so clear and calm.  I was there just after 9am on a Saturday morning.  If I come back to Dubai, I will definitely try visiting this beach again!

  1. This is the beach we always go to. 🙂

  2. how is the burj ironic?

    • How are any great monuments or buildings iconic!? The Burj is known as one of the best hotels in the world. Ask people about the most well known buildings in Dubai and Burj al Arab will usually be listed 2nd, right after Burj Khalifah. I’d call that iconic. 😉

  3. I will visit it for sure.
