As we know, the winter season is a busy one…

On Sunday, October 9 the Dubai Municipality announced that the revamp of Dubai’s public beaches is set to be completed this year in December – just in time for the cooler season.

The beaches have seen a number of upgrades including a sand covering of Al Mamzar Corniche, Jumeirah 1 and Jumeirah 3. According to the Dubai Municipality, the addition of sand will help in protecting the beaches from the strong waves.

The public beach in Umm Suqeim 3 will also be expanded.
