Luxury Jumeirah Beach Holidays

Gold star for beaches

Jumeirah Beach is all about azure blue skies and soft white sand. The Persian Gulf stretches on as far as the eye can see, the rolling breakers carrying a cool and refreshing breeze. The beach is overlooked by Dubai’s iconic skyline, and as the sun slips below the horizon and those vast towers light up, it becomes a beautiful place for an evening walk.

Being located near the centre of Dubai, it's within strolling distance of some of the city’s best restaurants and shopping destinations. Enjoy a drink with a view in one of the area’s many bars or take in an alfresco movie at the open air cinema.

There’s a whole range of water sports on offer, including kayaking, diving and wakeboarding. For families and others in the mood for some white knuckle thrills, the nearby Wild Wadi Water Park (one of the largest in the UAE) features three pools and 17 waterslides set in landscaped grounds overlooking the bay.

When to go

Summers in Dubai are seriously hot – 40°C kind of hot. Although all buildings are air conditioned, outdoor activities can be uncomfortable in this kind of heat, and some may even be closed. November to April is the best time to visit Dubai; rain is scarce, and temperatures stay at a comfortable mid-20s average. 

Visa Information

British citizens will be granted a free 30-day visa upon arrival in Dubai. 


In most tourist destinations in the Emirates, it’s customary to leave a 10% cash tip in restaurants. Small tips are appreciated for other services; aim for five to 20 UAE dirhams for porters bringing your bags to your room and for taxi drivers.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Dubai is Arabic. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
