The UAE’s beaches are truly spectacular. With shimmering blue oceans and sugar-soft sand, a day at the beach is a special treat for everyone. If you want to explore the best beaches in the UAE, you need the right car for the job. You’re going to need something with plenty of room to carry all that kit, whether it’s the children’s bodyboards or your own diving equipment. You’ll also have to pack in plenty of food and drink, and a change of clothes too. In short, you need an SUV.
At Al-Futtaim Lexus, we have the best SUVs in the UAE, designed to take you further in complete comfort. Lexus SUVs let you explore the road less travelled and discover those hidden gems away from the crowds. But which beach will you head for? Here are our top five beaches in the UAE.
Jumeirah Beach, Dubai
One of the UAE’s best beaches is right on our doorstep, so you won’t need to go too far for this one. Jumeirah Beach runs the length of the Al Fahidi district and is one of the most luxurious spots in the region. This beach is a playground for anyone who loves water sports, so you’re going to need an SUV to carry all your equipment for a day on the water. It’s a family-friendly beach too, so a crossover such as a Lexus RX would be the perfect choice for a trip to this beautiful beach.
This secret beach is the perfect place to escape the crowds. Tucked away between the Burj Al Arab and Palm Jumeirah Island, it’s worth leaving the big beaches behind to find this hidden gem. A narrow pathway leads through the royal Al Sufouh, and once you reach the beach you’ll find a calm, tranquil spot that’s ideal for swimming. An urban explorer such as the Lexus UX is the right choice for trips to this little beach.
Pack up your Lexus SUV with everything you’ll need for a fabulous family weekend at the beach. Mamsha al Saadiyat is a glorious stretch of powder-soft sand and warm, shallow water that’s perfect for paddling and snorkelling. If you’re lucky you may even get the chance to swim alongside one of the rare Hawksbill turtles that call this beach home. You’re also surrounded by cultural attractions such as the iconic Louvre Abu Dhabi, a beach golf course and restaurants galore. Mamsha al Saadiyat is a great choice for short weekend breaks or even just a fun day at the beach with the kids.
If you want to practice driving on sand before you hit the Empty Quarter on that ultimate adventure, 4x4 Beach is the place to go. This wide-open space is SUV-friendly, with plenty of space to drive on the sand right up to the shoreline. Once you’re there, the clear blue water tempts you for a refreshing dip, or you can break out the badminton set and have a game with the family. 4x4 Beach is ideal for more capable SUVs such as the Lexus GX or Lexus LX, as the sand can be quite soft and is more suitable for a 4x4 or AWD vehicle.
Our final choice is a wild and wonderful beach that’s also close to the mountains and dunes, providing you with plenty of opportunities to challenge your driving skills to the max. A breathtakingly beautiful shoreline and a sense that you’ve rediscovered a little slice of the wilderness, its tranquillity will help you forget about the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Famous for the mountain views and winding roads that take you inland and along the coastline, it’s a driver’s paradise and just the place to unleash the potential of your Lexus GX.
