Beach Bum in JBR :)

If you want to spend a full day at the beach, this is the place to go. You won’t have to worry about packing chairs or umbrellas since these are all supplied on-site for a small fee. Plus, there are toilets and showers, which always come in handy. I heard people always describe JBR as one of the famous and lovely beach in town. And I myself witnessed its own fascinating view down the coast. But the beach gets very busy with residents from the nearby towers and tourists staying at the neighboring hotels. 

Just be extra careful when you're planning to go to the in deep part of the ocean. I've had a bad experience while enjoying the beach I felt something hit and partially wrap around my leg - I understand that being in the ocean means dealing with the things in it, so I didn't freak out. I casually pushed away what I presumed to be seaweed, but when I lifted my hand there were long clear tentacles hanging from my fingers. That's when I noticed the burning - I got stung by jellyfish and that was my first encounter. It was really an awful experience. 

Jelly stings can be treated with vinegar and I was lucky then it didn't hit my leg totally so nothing serious. 

 Too cute but too dangerous.

Location: Al Sufouh Road, Dubai Marina
Opening hours: daily
No entry fees

I advise you should come here during weekdays because it's less crowded and can be peaceful to watch over the heavenly sunset.
