There are many beaches in Dubai, but Jumeirah beach is the most famous one. If you are planning to visit any beaches of Dubai, make sure that it is not during summer time. Because the sand will be very hot and you will not be able to enjoy much.

      Nice little hub. I think the Burj Khalifa is amazing. As a skyscraper geek I think I'll have to get over there and go up the observation deck. To be honest though that's the only thing that really interests me about Dubai.
