With its stunning beachfront, green spaces, and waterfront dining, Al Sufouh is the place to escape the city’s bustle.
If you’re looking for a mellow way to spend a day in Dubai, Al Sufouh is a great choice. Nestled along the coastline and just a short drive away from iconic landmarks such as the Burj Khalifa, the neighborhood is a breezy escape.
Head to Al Sufouh Beach, which lives up to its nickname ‘Secret Beach’ thanks to its somewhat hidden location behind a row of palm trees. Take a dip in the shallow, crystal-clear waters, perfect for little ones, or just lie back on the soft white sand and soak up the sunshine. Of course, you can’t miss the incredible views of the sail-shaped Burj Al Arab hotel in the distance.
Beyond the beachside vibes, Al Sufouh also extends to some of Dubai’s key business districts. Mingle with the city’s most influential at the nearby Dubai Media City and Dubai Internet City, where leading international firms including the BBC, CNN, IBM, and Microsoft have their regional headquarters.
Getting there: The closest Dubai Metro station is Sharaf DG on the Red Line. Al Sufouh is also part of the Dubai Tram network, which can be used to explore nearby areas.
