Fodor's Expert Review Jumeirah Open Beach
Open Beach sits at the northern end of the Jumeirah strip. As its name suggests, it's an open area, meaning there are no gates or entry fees. A long asphalt track is great for jogging and rollerblading. You can rent sun beds and umbrellas from kiosks, and there's a lifeguard on duty. There are often food trucks around for a casual bite. Amenities: lifeguards; parking (paid); showers. Best for: walking; solitude; swimming.
