Al Mamzar Beach Park is one of Dubai’s best-kept secrets. This public park and beach area is located in the Deira area of the city, near the border with Sharjah.
Unlike many of Dubai’s other beaches, Al Mamzar Beach Park has not been heavily commercialised. As a result, this hidden gem is not as busy as some of the city’s other beaches. However, this does not mean that it is any less beautiful or enjoyable.
The park features lush gardens, playgrounds, and picnic areas, as well as a wide range of amenities such as a swimming pool, basketball court, and BBQ areas. There are also plenty of shady areas to escape the heat, as well as several restaurants and cafes.
There are several beaches at the park. Each is clean and well-maintained.
Whether you’re looking for a place to sunbathe or just want to enjoy some peace and quiet, Al Mamzar Beach Park is the perfect spot.
Al Mamzar Beach Park is a haven for beach lovers, with its five pristine beaches and stunning views.
Nouras Beach, Murjan Beach, Danah Beach, and Flamingo Beach all lie on the western side of the peninsula and offer breathtaking views of the Arabian Gulf.
Sadaf Beach is situated on the eastern side and offers stunning views of Sharjah.
All of the beaches offer tables with benches and umbrellas, making it easy to relax and enjoy the incredible views. They are free to use.
The water is calm and shallow, making it perfect for swimming, and lifeguards are on duty to ensure everyone’s safety. Each beach has a food kiosk and toilets nearby, so you won’t have to go far to grab a bite or take a break.
The current water temperature can be found here.

Location and Getting There
Al Mamzar Park is located on a peninsula in northeast Dubai, right next to the border with Sharjah. It is off the beaten path and not near any major tourist hotels or attractions.
Poor public transport links make it more difficult to reach than other beaches in Dubai. It is most popular with local families with cars.
Bus service C28 goes from the Gold Souq Bus Station in Deira to the park entrance. Stops on the way include Al Ras Metro Station, Baniyas Square Metro Station, Union Metro Station, and Salah Al Din Metro Station.
The park offers over 1,000 car parking spaces. Parking just outside the entrance is free. A small fee is charged for using the car parks inside the park. Car parks inside the park are located near Flamingo Beach and the swimming pool.
There will be no problems getting to the park by taxi. Getting back, however, can be more of a challenge. Taxis aren’t always waiting at the entrance, but you can use Careem or Uber to book a ride to your final destination. The remote location means the fare will be quite expensive.
