Al Mamzar Beach Park

by Cyril Kardashevsky

Al Mamzar Beach Park is nestled to the north of Al Hamriya Port along the Corniche and Al Mamzar Creek, in the area of Deira.

With its spectacular coastline washed by the Arabian Gulf and a variety of sports and family-friendly amenities, it spans over 100 hectares of lush landscape filled with plants and flower beds.

Al Mamzar Beach Park is an expansive complex featuring multiple beaches and a generous park area with a swimming pool. 

Stretching approximately 2.1 miles (3.5 km), the peninsula’s coastline boasts a mix of attractions for beachgoers.

Depending on the weather conditions, the waves can be notably powerful here. To ensure safety, protective nets have been installed in the sea, creating a barrier that shields beach-goers from sea creatures and fish.

Note. While the water depth near the equipped beaches may not be extensive, there are areas with considerably deeper sections.

Nestled within the Al Mamzar Beach Park complex lies a bunch of five picturesque palm-dotted beaches (Nouras Beach, Danah Beach, Murjan Beach, Flamingo Beach, and Sadaf Beach). 

One of these beaches is located in a narrow strait that separates Dubai from Sharjah (Sadaf Beach). Here the beach boasts an inland lake that shields from ocean waves. This particular beach offers ideal conditions for families with young children, providing a safe and peaceful environment. Four other beaches grace the Arabian Gulf coastline.

Note. At Al Mamzar Beach, there’s a Wheelchair Bay for people with disabilities to enjoy the beach. However, be aware that not all of the amenities at Al Mamzar Park Beach are fully equipped to ensure optimal comfort for individuals with disabilities. For a more comfortable experience for people with disabilities, we recommend visiting JBR Beach or Palm West Beach.
