The Jebel Ali Public Beach will be developed into an exceptional eco-tourism attraction featuring diverse activities, including beach camping and a turtle rehab centre.

The development plan is part of the Dubai Master Plan for Public Beaches recently approved by Dubai’s Ruler, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

Under the plan, existing beaches will be developed with advanced facilities, and new beaches will be opened; increasing the length of public beaches in Dubai by 400 percent by 2040.

In Jebel Ali Public Beach, the public will be able to visit turtle enclosures created at the beach in accordance with global standards for their protection.

The enclosure will support nationwide efforts to save and rehabilitate turtle species and return them to their natural habitat, as part of the broader goal of preserving the country’s marine environment.
