Stunning Secret Beaches in the UAE

The UAE has a coastline that stretches over 1,318 kilometres, but some people have never really explored it. Here are some reclusive and stunning beaches along the UAE’s 1,318 kilometres of coastline — there’s real beauty out there if you’re prepared to look for it.

1. Saadiyat Beach, Abu Dhabi

Saadiyat’s trump card is its status as a haven for some of the country’s most prized wildlife. The dunes are protected and no development is permitted within 60 metres of the ­shoreline, allowing the hawksbill turtle to nest and breed here in peace.

2. Shuweihat Island

This one really does take some commitment, but the rewards to anyone who makes the epic journey (from practically anywhere else in the UAE) to this stunning location are innumerable.

3. Black Palace Beach, Dubai

Some call it Al Sufouh Beach, others Secret Beach. But Black Palace Beach gives this stretch of pristine white coast a nice mysterious touch and, for the most part, people are unaware it even exists.
