Friday - - In The Uae -

Swim­ming in a sea lit sil­ver by the moon­light sounds idyl­lic, right? You can now live out that ideal at the Umm Suqeim Beach – the UAE’s first night-swim­ming beach. Dubai Mu­nic­i­pal­ity has opened up a 125m stretch of the beach to mid­night laps thanks to two 12m smart light poles in­stalled by Dubai-based com­pany D Idea Me­dia that il­lu­mi­nate the beach with high-in­ten­sity light­ing. Im­proved vis­i­bil­ity isn’t the only safety fea­ture; the Dubai Mu­nic­i­pal­ity has also as­signed ex­tra life­guards to man the beach. Umm Suqeim Beach has also added an­other feather to its cap – it’s the UAE’s first smart beach. Be­sides the so­lar and wind-pow­ered Smart Poles, the beach also has so­lar-pow­ered chang­ing rooms and wi-fi hotspots. Swim­mers can ven­ture 30 me­tres out into the sea and no fur­ther. Un­til mid­night; free.
