Dubai reopens beaches and parks

Dubai has reopened a select number of beaches across the emirate, while major parks and the iconic Dubai Frame will also welcome visitors again from Friday.

Dubai Municipality has announced that beaches at Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR), Al Mamzar, Jumeirah and Umm Seqeim are all open to the public again as authorities continue to relax strict lockdown measures enforced to curb the spread of coronavirus.

In a social media posting members of the public were cautioned to continue taking precautionary measures in terms of social distancing, while face masks must be worn at all times.

The UAE’s Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHaP) and the National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority announced it was temporarily closing beaches and other public areas, including parks, at the end of March.

Dubai hotel beaches reopened earlier this month.

It was also announced on Thursday that Dubai’s museums are to reopen in a phased manner from June 1.
