"My job is just... beach." - Ken

Beach club season in Dubai might be our favorite time of year. While we may have been showing off our metallic swimwear in Mykonos and Portugal this summer, it’s time to bring them home. As a beach destination, Dubai offers up continuous options for incredible public (free) beaches. But when you want the full Dubai experience – plush lounges, umbrellas, towel service, cold drinks, food to order, and luxury showering facilities – then it doesn’t get much better than these Dubai beach clubs.

Drift Beach

One of our favorite places to catch the sunset, Drift Beach is the perfect spot to spend the day enjoying the best of the best of what Dubai has to offer. Stunning views, delicious water, a beautiful pool, and food you wish you could eat every day. Take a long stroll along the beach, or just sit back in a lounger as you watch the boats drift by to the calming sound of the gentle waves lapping up on the shore. But whatever you do, you must stay for that sunset view. You can thank us later.

Guests will want to enjoy the delicious menu as they trade off swimming in the sea, chilling in the pool, or bathing in the sun. It’s a designer’s dream of a beach house, and for anyone wanting to enjoy the good life – which is what ‘Eva’ translates to – Eva’s Beach House is a definite must.

Defined by sleek modern architecture, iconic all-white decor, and subtle tribal accents, this beach club sets a high bar. Its globally inspired menu features everything from nutritious salads and innovative sushi rolls to the freshest seafood. Bungalow 34 is a favorite of the jet setter and the beach club enthusiast alike, and let's not forget the Saturday Brunch at Café Nikki — a sophisticated culinary experience that encapsulates the laid-back luxury of Nikki Beach.

Nobu by the Beach in Dubai is where your next epic girls' day out should be. Picture lounging in private cabanas, sipping on signature cocktails, and letting the live music set the perfect vibe. This spot is all about indulging every sense — from feeling the sun on your skin to enjoying the stunning views and soaking up the chic atmosphere. The ultimate playground for a stylish, sun-soaked escape, Nobu by the Beach offers everything from daybeds and open-air cabanas to air-conditioned private cabanas. And when hunger strikes, enjoy the club's menu packed with Japanese-Peruvian bites and sharing platters that hit all the right notes.

Playa Beach Club

Toss a stone in Dubai, and you’ll hit a glamorous beach club spot. They’re everywhere. However, some have such a strong individual core that you’d be remiss to lump them in with the rest. Playa Beach Club on West Palm Beach, The Palm might be neighbors with plenty of other clubs, but their truly excellent Peruvian fine dining menu centered on a cevicheria concept and crafted with care by Chef Carlo Garcia Valentino, and the five-star service provided by the kind, attentive staff at the club transforms the typical beach club atmosphere into a refined experience. With great views of the Marina, beach, poolside service, and the incredible food and drinks from the kitchen, a visit to Playa will have you feeling positively spoiled (and reluctant to ever leave).

Pro tip: if you’re visiting on Saturday or Sunday, be sure to stick around for Playa’s engaging sundown ‘Sol’ experience, replete with sound healing and ritual smudging and cleanse yourself from your weekend indulgences.

SĀN Beach Club

There are beach clubs, and then there is SĀN Beach Club. The ultimate, luxury beach club experience, SĀN takes relaxation and time on the beach to a whole new level. With Bohemian vibes and hints of its African inspiration, SĀN Beach Club is quite literally where we would like to spend the remainder of our days. The food is fresh and healthy, the pool is cool and invigorating, and the beach is flawless. And while you technically can work from there, why in the world would you want to? Honestly, log off and reawaken at this gem we love to get lost in.

Surf Club

Whether you want to spend a laid-back day lazing on the beach or dine and dance under the stars, Surf Club is the place to be. Camped out on Palm Jumeirah’s West Beach, the Surf Club invites beach lovers to step into a unique venue where you can choose between sinking into the sun loungers, taking a refreshing dip in the sea, or relaxing in a private beach cabana set against the stunning backdrop of the Marina skyline. A seafood lovers’ paradise, Surf Club, not only has live sushi counters, but also a fresh fish selection that can be cooked according to your preference. Meanwhile, meat lovers will be more than satisfied with the prime Black Angus cuts and Wagyu sliders on the menu.

article TAGOMAGO

Tagomago

Tucked away on a tiny inlet inside Azure Residences on Palm Jumeirah lies one of Dubai's best beach clubs, Tagomago. Although this Latin America-inspired beach club is relatively new to the scene, it's already won our hearts with its beautiful ocean views, gorgeous villa-esque restaurant, impeccable service, and delicious tapas-style cuisine. 

Tagomago is one of those rare spots in Dubai that truly makes you feel like you're somewhere else, and this uncanny feeling is supported by a menu filled with tasty Spanish delicacies like Pan Con Tomate, stuffed olives, Padrón peppers, and Bluefin tuna carpaccio. Beyond the food, the crowd at Tagomago is always chic and dressed to kill — ready to dance the night away as soon as the sun dips low. Also, you can easily switch between a dip in the establishment's lovely new pool or park your caboose beachside on a sun lounger to soak up some rays. When it comes to assessing Tagomago as a whole, we can summarize it in one phrase: the vibes are immaculate.

Zenzi Beach

When you enter Zenzi Beach, it’s the view of the Palm that takes your breath away. It’s the perfect beachside retreat, just far enough away from the city to feel like you might be on holiday. The vibe is bustling with energy as the two Djembe Drum players welcome guests and create an atmosphere of fun and liveliness, just as we imagine it would be in South America. Enjoy the live music while you feast on a dreamy brunch of a huge seafood platter of oysters, prawns, lobster, and ceviche. But don’t skip the other traditional Latino fare like the guacamole, crispy squid, Bife De Ancho, and Salmón A La Brasa all served with five different heavenly sides. For dessert, we couldn’t resist the churrosAl Fajores Cookies, and Paletas and we don’t think you will be able to either.
