Beachside living…

Have you ever wanted to spend the weekend on the beach but were limited because of unnecessary camping gear? Thankfully, Kite Beach Umm Al Quwain has come to our rescue with the announcement of a brand new glamping site.

Beautiful bungalows

Casa Mikoko, which is managed by Kite Beach Umm Al Quwain sneakily updated its Instagram bio to state “bungalows soon.” The venue also announced on July 28 that they will be closed as of August 1 for renovations – coincident, we think not.

You can already sleep over at the Kite Beach site, if you’d like to camp you can stay overnight in one of the many huts, and the stay starts from Dhs200.

Kite Beach Umm Al Quwain is one of the UAE’s best-kept secrets complete with a beach-chic restaurant, kayaking, a gym and countless other activities and we suspect that the venue is about to become even more spectacular with the opening of these glamping bungalows.
