Dubai Islands Beach is a new, free-to-access, public beach located on Dubai’s northern shoreline past Port Rashid, just a hop, skip, and jump from Centara Mirage Beach Resort and Hotel Riu Dubai. It’s also pet-friendly and your pup can even play and swim in the ocean to their heart’s desire – one of the only spots in the city where dogs can swim in Dubai’s crystal-clear waters. For some non-water fun, the beach now has a new park with an obstacle course, ramp and seesaw for them to play in. There’s also a pet shower and a drinking fountain.
