 Travex Tips
  • The Museum parking area and nearby public parking areas are available (relatively few)
  • Do not self drive to museums and heritage sites as they are located in crowded old city areas and parking is a scarcity there; you are rather advised to use public transport.
  • Wear easy to slip in and out footwear as many places would need you to remove your footwear.

Summer time in Dubai or in fact in any part of the world means that it’s time to head to the beach, to work on your tan, to flaunt the gym workouts you have been going to or just to relax. We have an idea that can combine all three into one activity that will make going to the beach more fun and addictive.

Living or visiting Dubai during the summer gives you the ideal opportunity to check out the countless beaches on offer. We are blessed to be just by the breath-taking Arabian ocean so a trip to the beach needs to be on your list.

While you’re at the beach we suggest trying out wind surfing. Although it is known as an extreme water sport it is one that provides exhilaration and freedom once you get the hang of it.

There are many instructors in Dubai and a fairly large group of surfers living in Dubai so the technology and equipment to enjoy the sport is very accessible not to mention affordable. It is also a good sport to experience with your friends, family and even kids.

There are many websites that provide information on windsurfing and even kite surfing which are more or less in the same sports family (if we might say so!) so getting advice or arranging classes are easy.

Some beaches that you can try out the sport include Jebel Ali Beach located south of the Jebel Ali Hotel. The hotel has a water sports club that provide classes and equipment rental.

Meanwhile Black Palace Beach is a large open beach on Umm Suqeim road, however Kite Beach on the same road is the most popular and gets very crowded. A good location to go with your family would be the Sunset Beach, it has a good mix of swimmers and other water sports users so you can enjoy a full day out at this beach. If you live more towards Sharjah, then we suggest Mamzar Beach.

Check out the Surf House, where you can take part in surfing, surfaris, yoga, shop and much more. Get in touch on info@surfingdubai.com, +971 50 5043020 or visit www.surfingdubai.com.

Another school to try out if DuKite, operating since 2005 with IKO certification. For more information call them on +971-50-7586992 (International) and 050-7586992 (Local), email info@dukite.com or visit www.dukite.com.

There are various shops where you can purchase your gear such as Seayou (www.seayou.ae, +971 4 420 6100) and WaterCooled UAE (www.watercooleddubai.com + + 971 4 3749119).
