Dubai’s Supreme Committee for Urban Planning announced on Monday (June 3) the launch of two projects to redevelop Al Mamzar beach and Jumeirah 1 beach.

Under the redevelopment project, the popular public beaches in Dubai will be transformed into a modern tourist destination with the latest entertainment facilities and services.

The project, which costs Dh355 million, is expected to be completed in 18 months. During the redevelopment, part of the beaches will be closed, while parts that are open to the public will have safety measures in place.

As part of the development plan, the two beaches will have a total of 11km of bicycle and running tracks, and a 5km walkway. The beaches will have beach rest houses, beach seating, umbrellas, event spaces and areas for barbecue, fitness activities and children’s games. There will also be 50 shops, kiosks and restaurants as well as self-service machines for food and beverages.

Beach goers will have access to amenities such as safety deposit boxes, WiFi, electronic screens and beach rescue services. The beaches will also be monitored by 100 security cameras.

This step comes within the framework of ongoing efforts to enhance Dubai’s attractiveness as a vibrant city, and to consolidate its position as the world’s best city to live, work and visit.

Last year, Dubai completed the rehabilitation of its public beaches, including Al Mamzar Corniche, Jumeirah 1, Jumeirah 3, and Umm Suqeim 1. It also allocated allocated three new beaches for night swimming: Jumeirah 2, Jumeirah 3, and Umm Suqeim 1.

Dubai currently has eight public beaches, including Al Mamzar Beach, Al Mamzar Corniche, Jumeirah 1, Jumeirah 2, Jumeirah 3, Umm Suqeim 1, Umm Suqeim 2, and Jebel Ali Beach, all of which are internationally accredited under the Blue Flag program. ICA/Expat Media
