Avatar

Dubai is famous for that ‘can’t stop, won’t stop’ ‘tude and this is the ultimate proof.

It’s been announced that a new beach destination is coming, complete with a group of floating islands. Dubbed ‘sunset promenade,’ it’s 1km in length and is giving us LIFE for when the cooler climes return.

The new beachfront family destination will be connected to Jumeirah Beach Walk and near the Dubai Water Canal, featuring design features like grassy hills and sandy hills, plenty of shop space and making up a total of 190,000m2. Sunset Promenade, we are already buzzing to visit! Announced by the RTA today, expect a bucketload of more details including launch date to be released soon.

Let’s just sleep until 4pm all summer long and then hit the beach? Deal! Go prepared with this nifty sports umbrella to protect from evening rays – see it here.

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! You can still walk, but keep hydrated with Guerilla Paks which can store up to two litres of water.

Safety first! Sunscreen is essential at the beach. This Korean sunscreen has aloe which hydrates and soothes the skin while blocking out harmful UV rays

Who said cute inflatable floats are for kids? This pink donut float is an item everyone needs.

Refresh your face with a mineral water facial spray for AED.22.

Prevent your neck from getting warm this summer and get a cooling neck wrap. You won’t regret it!

A mini portable fan is a MUST HAVE at the beach.
