Jumeirah’s Free Beaches – What you need to know before going there



Pull out your beach collection… “it’s sun, sand, sea time again”


This is Jumeirah shores research.  An information about free beach in Dubai, where everyone’s more than welcome to enjoy.

Pictures taken according to Concierge eyes, for the benefit of inquiring people and to answer hotel guests unending questions.  What a noble mission… ahem.

As a Concierge you will only recommend what suites your guest, making sure basic facilities are available for their convenience.   Concierge, the more information you know, the more important you are.

By the way, the photographer woke up so early to catch sunrise but experience dumb disappointment, there’s “no sunrise in Jumeirah shores – only sunset”.  


Sun is rising happily @ 6:39am on the desert side,  seems telling … I’m at your back dear :⊃

Even if you’re not a beach fan, the energy you get from stepping on the sand, hearing the waves, seeing & smelling sea water is well worth the visit.
