The only way you’ll beat this beach club’s view of the Burj Al Arab is if you get on a boat – the new spot at Jumeirah Al Naseem is quite literally under the shadow of the Burj (and we mean that figuratively, you’ll still get a tan). The luxury club has a white sand beach, an infinity pool and music that’s just loud enough to add atmosphere. People walk around handing out fruit skewers and give you special flip flops for walks along the beach. Go in the morning if you want to read a book, or head there in the afternoon if you’re after a livelier vibe.
