Al Mamzar Beach Park is one of greater Dubai’s most popular spots for leisure time with family and friends. Set on a peninsula with views of the city’s skyscraper skyline, this sprawling scenic locale has five palm-dotted beaches with beautiful, calm waters, along with a swimming lagoon patrolled by lifeguards. Relax at umbrella-shaded picnic tables right on the sand as the kids build sandcastles and play beach football. Plenty of public BBQs make al fresco lunches a breeze, and there’s even a park train to get around on. Al Mamzar Beach Park is a 15-minute drive from the hotel.
