A quick Google search of the term “UAE beaches,” will reveal what many in the region have been lamenting for quite some time. The UAE’s public beaches are slipping away, as private hotels and resorts stake their exclusive claim to areas that were once open for all to enjoy.

“It used to be that the public had access to the marvelous beaches of the Arabian Gulf, and as a family we have wonderful memories of swimming and camping on unspoilt beaches,” lamented a writer for the National earlier this year. “But, alas, construction of hotels, resorts and private weekend villas has almost completely closed access to the beautiful natural beaches of the region.”

What remains of the Emirates’ public beach lands is taking a beating from overuse, and careless visitors.

“Besides lamenting the loss of public beaches, which affects all in the UAE – citizens, residents, visitors and especially future generations – those few areas of open sea access that are still available are often strewn with rubbish left by campers,” the writer added.
