Kite Beach is lovely but could do with more toi­lets

7 Days in Dubai - - COMUNNITY -

I re­cently had a chance to visit the kite beach af­ter a few years. And I must say the im­prove­ments pro­vided by Dubai Mu­nic­i­pal­ity are truly im­pres­sive. There are sev­eral very nice cafes, a tram­po­line gym, plenty of um­brel­las and loungers but lots of free space on the shore as well. The beach was clean and well main­tained. The one thing which sur­prised me, how­ever, was the beach still has the same small ladies room and the day I vis­ited, only one toi­let was work­ing. The line was at least a dozen peo­ple long. Although there are ter­rific wheel­chair ac­cess fa­cil­i­ties on the beach, a young wo­man in a chair was still forced to wait end­lessly for the wheel­chair ac­ces­si­ble toi­let room to be opened. I hope there are more ladies rooms in the plan as this beach will be sim­ply per­fect when they are built. So­phie Dubai Ara­bic, English, Rus­sian, French, Man­darin and Ta­ga­log they would be so big that you’d end up driv­ing in per­pet­ual dark­ness and by the time you’d found the lan­guage you were look­ing for you’d ei­ther have missed your exit or driven into the back of the car in front.
