Kite Beach Dubai
Water: Crystal Clear
Description of Kite Beach Dubai (United Arab Emirates)
Kite beach is the official kitespot in Dubai and on this spot kiters have precedence over other beach users. On windy days often swimming is forbidden on this beach to give priority to kitesurfers. Nevertheless, the beach is often quite crowded by beachgoers and on low wind days, it really gets crowded. For this reason, kite foilers and hydrofoils, that can ride with little wind, prefer the close spot of Jumeriah, which is often less crowded. On the few strong wind days, they instead converge here since the condition, in that case, to set the kites and get in the water are better here.
The beach is pretty wide and there is plenty of space to set and launch the kite even on crowded days, but the access to the water can be through other beachgoers.
Even in the windy season, the conditions are normally of light winds between 8 and 14 knots, but sometimes, especially in January and February, you can have 1 or two days of wind above 20-25 knots. The main season is between November and March, while in the hot months the windy days are very limited or absent.

The beach tends to be crowded with other beachgoers. The surrounding beaches are closed with chained buys, so make sure to land back to the kite beach. Some shells on the beach can be a danger for the kites that can be damaged if crashed or dragged on the sand.
The spot is in Dubai's urban area and you can find any means for accommodations, restaurants, or any other amenity. Directly on the beach, there are several street food kiosks, with various food choices, from junk to healthy.
