Middle East Beach holidays

Introduction

Although Oman has more than 1,000 miles of coastline and some of the best coral reefs in the world, other countries in the Middle East have had to create beautiful beaches, particularly in places like Dubai. The best beaches in the Middle East include:

Emirates Palace Beach in Abu Dhabi is a decadent resort with a mile long private beach surrounded by pristine parks and lawns. Alternatively explore the deserted islands offshore by dhow.

Al Mamzar in Dubai is a man-made beach that's less frenetic than better-known Jumeirah but which still boasts expansive sands and sheltered swimming.

Shell Beach in Oman, close to Muscat, has excellent empty swathes and some superb coral reefs teeming with marine life.

These are just a handful of the options available though. Additionally, tailor-make your beach holiday in the Middle East by adding a city break or excursion to create a truly sensational escape; talk to a destination specialist to see what we can do for you.
