Dubai Beaches To Expand


His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has approved the plans for the expansion of beaches in Dubai.

As part of the Dubai 2040 Urban Master Plan, new beaches will open, and existing beaches will be developed further.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed said, "The ‘Dubai Master Plan for Public Beaches will increase the length of public beaches by 400 percent by 2040. Their total length will increase from 21km to 105km. Services offered on public beaches will increase by 300 percent by 2025."

The expansion will cater to residents and boost tourism in Dubai.

Phase one of the plan will witness the development of the Jebel Ali Public Beach, along with Nakheel, a leading developer in Dubai.

Mangrove trees will be planted to preserve marine life and prevent erosion at the beach. Cycling and pedestrian tracks, water sports, restaurants, shopping outlets and food carts will also be added.

To improve access, a direct public bus route will be launched to link the Jebel Ali Metro Station with the Jebel Ali Public Beach.

Turtle enclosures will also be added, to protect the natural habitat.

Development of the Al Mamzar Public Beach will begin in June and will be completed by the end of 2023, with new public facilities, pedestrian and cycling tracks and mangrove trees added to the Corniche at the beach.

Retail kiosks will be opened and smart safe lockers installed at Jumeirah Beach 2 and Umm Suqeim 1 beaches, where new water sports will also be added.

To allow easier access for people of determination, 10 entrances and routes will be added to the beaches at Jumeirah 1 and 2, Umm Suqeim 1 and 2, Al Mamzar Public Beach and Al Mamzar Corniche.

Additionally, 28 parking spaces will be designated for people of determination, with wheelchairs available on the beach and public chairs to use while swimming.
