Swanky, upmarket AND affordable? Jumeirah Beach holidays might well tick all the boxes on your holiday wish list…
The Jumeirah Beach area runs along a 16-mile stretch of Dubai’s dazzling coastline - we’re not talking about a paltry patch of sand here. This is Dubai at its brilliant, captivating, showy best; where the distinctive shape of the Burj al Arab stands tall, where the Palm Jumeirah branches out into the shimmering blues of the Persian Gulf, and where unforgettable holiday memories are forged under the brilliant sunshine of the United Arab Emirates.
For a beach break with fast and easy access to the fantastic attractions of Dubai, holidays in Jumeirah Beach are ideal. Stay in a landmark hotel beside the sands if you can afford to. Dubai is opulent and ostentatious and it’s worth splashing out on your holiday package to dive into the rich elegance of this incredible destination. Fine dining, spas, watersports, private beaches, and the best views of the sea – whether you keep the costs down with a room-only break or book an all-inclusive Jumeirah Beach break, the famed hospitality of Dubai will be rolled out for you and your travelling party. Icons of the hotel scene in Jumeirah Beach include the Burj al Arab, Atlantis, and the Jumeirah Beach Hotel.

It’s a tale of highs and lows in Dubai’s Jumeirah Beach. Let’s dig deeper…
Generally, high temperatures equal low prices and low temperatures mean high prices.
Take winter as an example. By Dubai standards, the daytime averages of 20-25C are low, but these comfortable temperatures (perfect beach weather), coupled with a sprinkling of annual events, see holiday prices rise as demand surges. The story in spring is the same, as divine beach weather lures holidaymakers to the sands.
Summer is hot, really hot, in Jumeirah Beach. If you can stand the heat (we’re talking 40C+), there are many cheap holidays available. It’s still hot in autumn too, with many more bargain holidays to be had.
Booking well in advance of travel is the best way to snare a bargain Jumeirah Beach break, whenever you plan to travel, as holiday companies tempt early bookers with a range of worthwhile incentives. Start your search now.
