1. White Beach aka Nassimi Beach, Atlantis Beach Club
Open from morning to night, the White Beach, which is attached to the Atlantis, offers comfort and luxury worthy of the hotel’s 5-star rating. Whether you are a resident or not, you can access the different areas of Atlantis for a fee that varies from place to place: water park, pools, bar, etc.
White Beach opens its doors throughout the day to hotel residents (free of charge) and also to non-residents. Non-residents of the hotel have to pay an entrance fee which starts from AED 200, or about € 50 to be able to spend the day at White Beach. Please note that 50% of the entrance fee is refunded in vouchers for your onsite consumption (drinks and meals) and the rental of a lounge chair for the day is included in the fee. There are other admission tickets that give you access to other options: oceanfront cabana, VIP areas and others available on the Atlantis website.

Shortly before sunset, White Beach closes the pool to offer a different atmosphere. The place transforms into a space to sip a delicious cocktail prepared by the bartenders while enjoying the setting and the music hosted by a DJ. It is the ideal place to meet with friends, family or to spend a sweet evening in love.
