Jebel Ali Beach Development Approved

Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of The Executive Council has approved the master plan for the Jebel Ali Beach Development Project.

The 6.6 km beach is set to become a recreational destination with a focus on environmental preservation.

“As part of the Dubai 2040 Master Plan’s goal to develop and expand the emirate’s public beaches by 400 per cent, we have approved the master plan and designs for the Jebel Ali Beach Development Project. The unique project spans 6.6km and covers a total area of 330ha. Dubai is committed to implementing pioneering projects that enhance quality of life and strengthen the city’s position as the world’s best place to live and work in,” Sheikh Hamdan said via X (formerly known as Twitter).

The development comes as part of a broader initiative to enhance Dubai’s urban experiences, as directed by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

The project aims to create a distinctive recreational destination that places a high priority on environmental preservation and the protection of local ecosystems and wildlife. The Jebel Ali Beach Development Project is part of a comprehensive master plan to develop public beaches in the emirate.

The development plan includes two distinct areas: a 5km Sandy beach to be developed by Nakheel and a 1.6km Mangrove beach to be developed by Dubai Municipality. Key features of the development include a 2km open swimmable beach, a 2.5km diving sports area and a walkway with viewing platforms designed to blend with the surrounding environment. The beach will also offer recreational and service areas catering to beachgoers of all ages, including children’s play zones and sports and marine activity areas.
