5 Reasons Why I Love Jumeirah Open Beach

After several months of coping up with the 40-45 degrees C scorching hot weather, the temperature is  finally dropping down! A great time to go to the beach and enjoy Dubai's sunny weather. 

Our fave "beachscapade", as of the moment, is an early morning getaway to Jumeirah Open Beach. Here are 5 reasons why:

I love Jumeirah Open beach

1. Jumeirah Open Beach is very accessible via public transport. 
Not wanting to miss the sunrise, we rode a taxi to the beach for only 15AED. It was just a 10-minute ride from our place. Going back home, we took the public bus which is pretty cheap. Travel time using the bus is longer because of the route and several stops.

2. No entrance fee!
Frolic under the sun as long as you want. The white sand, blue skies and the beach are yours for free. The beach is at its best in the morning as it is clean, quiet and peaceful. It can be very crowded during weekend afternoons.
