19. Mercato Beach
Mercato Beach was once frequented mostly by locals and was often considered a hidden gem of sorts. However, with the current development work going on, visitors are eagerly waiting to see the new facilities.
There are tables and bean bags to sink into and artificial lighting for those who find themselves reading beyond daylight. And, if you want to do a spot of shopping, Mercato Shopping Mall is located nearby.
If you’re looking for a beach with a peaceful ambiance but aren’t seeking isolation and can’t do without modern facilities, Mercato Beach is it.
Highlights: Mercato Beach features a jogging track, a promenade, and even a beach library for bibliophiles. Library kiosks dot the area and you can take out books of your choice at absolutely no charge.
Location: Jumeirah Beach Road, Jumeirah 2, Dubai
