Y
ep, you can FINALLY leave the house and embrace some family fun in the sun!


The weekend is almost here and it's the first one in a long time where we're clear on where exactly you can take the kids to have a little fun in the sun and blow off some steam.

The Authorities have confirmed children of all ages can now visit the beach and they've also released new guidance on facemasks confirming those under six no longer need to wear them. Welcome news for mums and dads across Dubai for sure - it's one less battle for the day after all! 

Even more good news is that many of our family-favourite venues have now officially opened their beaches to Privilee, so now is the time to have your best weekend in a long time! Pack your beach bags - remember you'll need to take your own towels, and get ready to escape your own four walls, hit the beach and get back to enjoying the Dubai we all love.

Here are our favourite family beach spots that are open now...

1. Anantara Dubai The Palm

What better way to start the weekend than with a hearty and healthy breakfast? We recommend taking the family for an early breakfast at Revo Cafe before heading to the beach for a mid-morning paddle. Being located on the east end of the Palm Jumeirah certainly has its perks too, it’s one of the most peaceful beaches we’ve ever seen! 

Beach is open from 8:00am – 8:00pm | Pre-booking required via the Privilee app | Free access for infants and up to two children aged 3 – 16 | Members have to bring their own towel | Changing facilities are not available | 20% discount on food and drinks

2. Habtoor Grand Resort

A firm family favourite amongst our members, we recommend heading down to this delightful beach spot to spend an afternoon letting the kids burn off steam on its huge stretch of sand. You could grab yourself a cocktail from the beach bar menu and take in the views of the boats at sea whilst they play!

Beach is open from 8:30am – 7:30pm | Pre-booking is not required | Free access for infants and up to three children aged 3 – 16 | Members have to bring their own towel | Changing facilities are not available | 35% discount on food and drinks

3. Sofitel Dubai The Palm

This is the perfect place to visit for a daycation if you want to feel like you’re on holiday and away from it all! We recommend taking a bat and ball and play games along the shoreline before heading off to Maui, its family-friendly beach bar, for a spot of lunch. They’ve just launched their summer menu so you can dig into amazingly fresh salads, signature power bowls, sandwiches, pizzas and more with great options for the kids too!

Beach is open from 9:00am – 7:00pm | Pre booking is required via the Privilee app | Free access for infants and up to three children aged 3 – 15 | Members have to bring their own towel | Changing facilities are not available | 30% discount on food and drinks

4. The Westin Dubai and Le Meridien Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina 

Forgot to pack the bucket and spades? Don’t worry, this beach has you covered with lots of tools for kiddies to use. Take the family for an afternoon beach session and you won’t be disappointed. Snap a selfie on its super instagrammable sea swing before heading to the popular Italian Bussola restaurant and dig into the best pizzas in town!

5. Sheraton Jumeirah Beach Resort

If you're into tropical views, you'll fall in love with the sprawling landscaped gardens at this resort. After a day of rest and relaxation by the beach whilst the kids get stuck into building sandcastles, we recommend a family stroll along the sand to take in the sunset views behind the new Dubai eye and Bluewaters Island. 

Beach is open from 8:00am – 7:00pm | No pre-booking required | Free access for infants and up to three children aged 3 – 16 | Members have to bring their own towel | Changing facilities are not available | 40% discount on food and drinks

6. Jumeirah Zabeel Saray

We’re sure you’re craving a touch of luxury after being cooped up for so long! So why not head to this glamorous beach on Palm Jumeirah – you never know, you may spot a local celeb? The kids will love the shallow sea waters and playing in the sand as you sit back and relax on a comfy sun lounger for some well-earned peace and quiet.

Beach is open Sunday - Thursday from 8:00am – 6:00pm, Friday & Saturday from 10:00am – 6:00pm | Pre-booking required via the Privilee app | Free access for infants and up to three children aged 3 – 12 | Members have to bring their own towel | Changing facilities are not available | 20% discount on food and drinks
