Dubai may be famous as a luxury travel destination with 7-start hotels and luxury brands, but it is also renowned for its soft, snowy-white sand beaches with crystal clear warm waters. Dubai offers a lot of options for beaches – luxury, private, residential, and public beaches. Most beaches are manmade and are flatter with soft-white sand.
Summer is very intense in Dubai, so the most popular time for a beach event is winters or night-time parties. However, the busiest season is winter season, during which tourists from the West come to Dubai to escape the cold, which ensures a huge crowd for your event this year.
