Because of its popularity the beach is not so clean as others in Dubai, but from this one you can see skyscrapers, the highest building in the world Burj Khalifa and Burj Al Arad hotel. Besides that on Open Beach there is a surf-riders club SurfHous Dubai. You can rent a surf board and take a few surfing lessons. On weekends the beach is overcrowded, so it's better to come here on week-days.
