As you know or might not know, the weekend in the UAE falls on Friday and Saturday. I am so grateful that I get to enjoy them now. That being said, I went to the beach for two consecutive weekends now. Welcomed the sand on my feet, floated in the water and sort of swam a bit (because your girl right here can’t swim, like the actual swimming thing that swimmers do? yes that), and soaked under the sun. Plus I need to know how to swim and hanging out at the beach is a perfect way to do so. Also, I made a promise to myself to go out and explore the city as much as possible, though, I only have the weekends, we will make it happen!
For a quick background: The beach extends along Corniche Road from near the Hilton Hotel to beyond Al Khaleej Al Arabi Street. The beach is equipped with multiple umbrellas to use and cost AED 25 (US $6.81). It’s divided into different gates (Gate 1, 2, 3, 4) and these are the areas for family and friends with AED 10 (US $2.7) entrance fee, aside from the General Public beach (that is open and free of charge).
Rest assured that the place has a massive parking space and some are free of charge as well.
That is all for the update for now.
Keep your eyes peeled! Cheers!
