Recent Posts


Jebel Ali Beach is set to the best longest public open beach in Dubai.

Plans for the Jebel Ali Beach development project have been approved, and at 6.6 kilometres long, the beach will include facilities for swimming, diving, offer walkways with viewing platforms, play zones for kids and a mangrove ecosystem.

What’s more, the recently revealed plans include details on Jebel Ali Beach’s turtle rehabilitation programmes, allowing visitors to enjoy watching turtles in their natural habitat.

The plans, confirmed on Sunday July 7, reveal Jebel Ali Beach will cover an area of 330 hectares, which will see 5 kilometres of sandy beach to be developed by Nakheel and a 1.6 kilometre mangrove beach to be developed by Dubai Municipality.

His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed said: “Under the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, [Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai] we are committed to developing the infrastructure and services needed to offer diverse urban experiences for citizens, residents, and visitors.

“Our focus is on creating spaces rich in beaches, open areas, and recreational greens. The ultimate goal is to enhance the well-being of the city’s people, create a healthy environment for all and make Dubai the world’s best place to live in.”

His Highness added: “The Jebel Ali Beach Development Project is part of a broader master plan to develop public beaches in the emirate aimed at increasing the total length of beaches by 400%.”

The longer term aim is to add new public beaches to our city, enhance our current favourite beachy spots and to kit each one out with even more things to do.

The announcement comes shortly after news that Dubai Metro will have 140 stations covering over 228 square kilometres by 2040, which was announced across social media channels by the Government of Dubai on Sunday June 30.

The Dubai Metro currently has 64 stations operating over an area of 84 square kilometres.

The plans have been announced as part of the Executive Council of Dubai’s plans to develop the areas surrounding Dubai Metro stations, reducing the impact of carbon emissions in the emirate to 16 tonnes per capita and bringing more economic opportunities to the city.

Elsewhere in the Emirate, Dubai has also revealed ambitious plans for Al Maktoum International Airport, which will see it become the world’s largest capacity airport.

The announcement made on Sunday April 28, 2024, outlined the Dhs128 billion project be five times the size of the existing Dubai International Airport when it is eventually completed.

The existing airport in Dubai South, also known as Dubai World Central, serves a small fraction of the planned 260 million passengers it will eventually have capacity for.
