Dubai is simply in a league of its own.  If the exotic buildings and booming culture doesn’t excite you, the beach surely will.  Will warm, teal-colored water, and daily temperatures (in the summer) reaching an average of over 100 degrees, it’s easy to see why the beach is the focal point of Dubai.  Kite surfers, jet skiiers, and surfers can be commonly found along the beach, and are all activities you can do too!  Just across the street, local coffee shops and artworks fill the streets making the beach much more than any typical experience.  All these amenities are what puts Dubai at the top of our Asian beach list.
