The best beach clubs in Dubai

From chic creekside venues to a strip of hotspots on Palm West Beach..

Beach clubs are a bonafide Dubai pastime and, naturally, they’re super popular. So if you’re planning on topping up that tan this weekend, it’s best to book ahead.

Here are the coolest Dubai beach clubs to book a spot at.
