Beaches are not private properties of hotels in Dubai and waterfront residences. There are places open to the public, free of cost. The Jumeirah Open Beach is one of them, attracting tourists from various countries and cultures. A cycle path, fabulous skyline and a white sandy beach should create a memorable day trip.
The man-made Dubai Fountain in front of the world's tallest building, Burj Dubai is again a beautiful sight on a starry night.
