The coastline of the Arabian Gulf holds the world's most beautiful yachts, (Sheikh Mohammed owns the world's 3rd biggest yacht simmered here).
See the beautiful skyline of Dubai Marina on an extravagance yacht no matter what your budget is, as the options are unlimited.
Dubai's beach locations are action-packed hotspots with speedboats around Palm Jumeirah, jet ski through Dubai Marina, or snorkel under Arabian Gulf water. Filled with adrenaline pumping activities and posh resorts, there is no shortage of things you can do and see. A number of the beach locations across the Jumeirah have hotels which give a luxurious beach experience. These places tend to give you a more family-friendly ambiance. To assist you to find your perfect spot on the Arabian shoreline, check out our roundup of the greatest sightseeing options in Dubai.
Here are some of the places you will not want to miss:
Built-in a traditional style, this modern Jumeirah mosque is a great place to visit. Tours can be found on Saturdays, Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays so tourists can find out about Islam. There is no need of reservation, but women have to be covered in traditional Arab style. If you go for a yacht rental in Dubai, do ask about the places they will show you around.
Don't skip the Burj al Arab Hotel, which is created and designed in the form of the sail of a ship. Prior booking for meals, evening tea or cocktails in the Skyview Bar is required. Modest dressing code (explained on the hotel's website) is mandatory.
Do visit the souq at the Hotel Madinat Jumeirah. The souq is a symbolic architecture of Dubai. It's an eerie mixture of tradition and contemporary style that's partially appealing and partially jarring.
In the chain of man-made islands designed offshore, the Palm Jumeirah has been built-in the form of a Palm tree. Its major appeal for day trippers is the new Atlantis Hotel. From the fantasy hotel on the fantasy island, it reminds you of Atlantis in the Bahamas.
If you've planned an evening cruise trip, you'll witness the stunning panoramas of the high-rise architectures against the nighttime sky. Glide over the waves, relax as you want, take photographs, bask in the refreshing breezes and communicate with your group. If you want, play your own music on the stereo system or rustle up your own food, or prepare it in the barbeque grill while cruising.
