Jean takes you from the Metro, through the Marina to the full on action Jumeirah Beach, where just about every mad and expensive toy and plaything is available. Power jets that have you flying up out of the sea, camel riding, parasailing behind an expensive boat, zip lines, discos, everything imaginable that money can buy is on the beach. With bars and hotels everywhere it is easy to find a beer and get out of the sun and to dine like a king. At the far end of the beach Doris steps back to the high rise apartments. Far too much for us to try and cover in one film, she is near a huge tennis academy and a bar with giant outside TV screens on sports channels. There are family theme parks and water parks, there is everything in Dubai.
Back from the beach, the local Metro to the end takes you to a college and just beyond is a huge sand beach with no disturbances. This is used by the surfers, wind surfers and campers. It is unspoilt and every time we have been there it has been empty. It is a local beach. Dress code, there is none on the beach though nudity is a step too far. The popular beaches are very cosmopolitan, though the private beaches can get voters especially on a Friday when it is a day off from workers. Some hotel private beaches will have women and children only days as there are women and children only carriages on the metro..
