Mamzar Beach Park, leisure and relaxation destination in Dubai
Among the must-do activities in Dubai, in the top 5, we find the “beach” activity. Dubai is a coastal city, so the sea is easily accessible no matter where you live, be it Downtown, Jumeirah, the Marina or other residential areas. There is something for everyone: beach clubs with a festive atmosphere, beaches with a chic and luxurious atmosphere and others that are more family oriented and accessible. Among the spots not to be missed if you are in Dubai, there is the Mamzar Beach Park.
Located in the Mamzar district of Deira, a few kilometers from Sharjah, Mamzar Beach Park is one of the most popular spots for residents and tourists in Dubai. It is more than just a beach, it is a whole complex that covers 106 hectares. The beach itself includes five beaches, a swimming pool, restaurants, gardens and VIP areas where it is possible to rent for the day. As you can see, Mamzar Beach Park is a reconstruction of a small village where everything is centered in one place to spend a pleasant day and have access to everything you need.
1. Beaches and swimming pools for bathing and resting
After paying your entrance fee, you will walk through a garden of lawns and large trees to reach the beach. Mamzar Beach Park has five beaches. Spread out over several meters, you can sit wherever you want by renting a deckchair and umbrella or using your own. There is enough space to have your privacy and sunbathe quietly on the fine, soft sand of the beach.
For those who prefer to swim and chill by the pool, you can enjoy the three large pools at Al Mamzar. Here too, there are loungers and all the necessary equipment to enjoy your relaxing day.
