Make the most of the mid-twenties temperatures at one of the UAE’s best beach clubs.
Read our picks of the top 5 beach clubs in the UAE below.
1. Zero Gravity, Skydive Dubai
Arguably the most well-known of Dubai’s beach clubs and arguably the best thanks to its glass-fronted infinity pool and unrivalled location, framed by the Dubai marina skyline. What you might not know about Zero Gravity however, is that it has some excellent facilities from changing rooms with all the necessary electrical appliances, luxury showers and incredible day beds and loungers. Relax with a giant watermelon as you soak up the rays before day transcends to night and the venue transforms itself into the stage for an array of international artists and DJs. Full package anyone?
Tip: The recently launched Supernatural Saturdays offers 5 hours all-inclusive food, beverage and beach access for under AED 300!
2. Saadiyat Beach Club, Saadiyat Island, Abu Dhabi
For those with deep pockets and a penchant for the finer things in life, Saadiyat Beach Club, nestled away on the island of Saadiyat, Abu Dhabi is the ultimate sanctuary of wellbeing. Boasting beautiful natural surroundings, excellent facilities and some notable restaurants, a day here is a day well spent indeed.
Tip: For the best beach club experience treat yourself to The Indulgence Package which combines a spa treatment, day pass and a three course feast at Safina, priced at AED 550 per person and available on weekdays only.

At the foot of the Burj Al Arab, Cove Beach is a secret haven in a bustling city. Relax on an oversized daybed or take a dip in the bijou pool as you’re waited on hand and foot. With live music throughout the week, Cove has become the epitome of holiday vibes in Dubai.
