Three new beaches for night swimming opened in Dubai
Dubai Municipality has further expanded its beach tourism offering with the opening of three new beaches for night swimming in Jumeirah 2, Jumeirah 3 and Umm Sukheim 1. The 800m long night beaches are equipped with lighting systems that allow residents and tourists to swim around the clock, and electronic screens that display information aimed at increasing safety among beach-goers.
His Excellency Dawoud Al Hajri, Director General of Dubai Municipality, said that Dubai Municipality will continue to develop the emirate’s picturesque beaches, turning them into some of the city’s most attractive attractions.
The emirate’s wide variety of beaches, each with its own unique charm, gives people the opportunity to enjoy vibrant seafood and a variety of activities. The beaches are key attractions that form part of Dubai’s unique tourism, lifestyle and recreational offerings for residents and visitors.
In collaboration with its partners, Dubai Municipality has developed unique new facilities designed to enhance the experience of visitors to the beaches, including lighting systems and electronic screens that allow for safe bathing 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The beaches are staffed by qualified lifeguards equipped with the latest rescue and emergency tools to ensure the highest standards of safety. According to the municipality, the night swimming time will last from sunset to sunrise.
To improve safety, Dubai Municipality recommends that visitors only engage in night swimming in designated areas and avoid entering the sea from other locations. The municipality also stressed the importance of safety awareness, compliance with beach rules and regulations, keeping children under constant supervision and following lifeguard instructions, as well as maintaining maximum cleanliness.
