Hidden Gem: Dubai Nessnass Beach


From high-end beach clubs to overcrowded public areas, Dubai’s coastline has it all. The city’s beaches range from heaven to hellhole. Sweaty crowds and swimming pools full of more alcohol than chlorine; needless to say, it can be a bit much at times. If you’re not a fan of dolling up in a glitzy bikini and wedges, or you don’t fancy sifting your way through a hundred tourists to find a space for your towel, I have just the hidden gem for you.


Nessnass beach is one of the most untouched spaces in the city: an escape from the hustle and bustle of Dubai life. Big, open beaches, without the crowds (even on a weekend). The perfect place to sit back, relax and unwind.

In terms of food and drink, there’s nothing much around there, as it’s not a touristy spot. So if you’re happy to chuck a towel on the sand and chill with your own little picnic, Nessnass is the place to go. Nothing fancy, nothing pretentious. Just pure, laid back goodness.

Well worth a visit, if you ask me! Where are your favourite spots in the city?
