Also known as Russian Beach for the high number of Russian tourists that frequent it, Open Beach is one of the most popular in the city. Over half a mile long, it is located next to downtown Dubai, very close to Jumeirah Beach Park.
The beach has promenades, hammocks, parasols, and showers, but there are no shaded green spaces like at Al Mamzar Beach Park and Jumeirah Beach Park.
Perfect for a stroll
Open Beach is a free public beach, something which is particularly noticeable on Fridays when workers take a rest.
For this reason, and due to the lack of other facilities, many tourists prefer to spend time at the beaches of their hotels or other private parks.
Bus: lines 8, 88, and C10.
