A second Night Swimming Beach in the UAE
2017, MAY 29
Water color changed at Jumeirah Beach!
Have you noticed something different in the Jumeirah beaches those days?
The crystal-clear water of the sea turned to a funny color!
However, do NOT worry this is not harmful.
In fact, Dubai Municipality posted on its Instagram the picture of the sea and mentioned:
“The Environment Department confirmed that the change in sea color yesterday morning in some areas of Jumeirah beaches was due to one type of algal blooms (Trichodesmium erythraeum bloom) which is not harmful and will fade in the coming days. This conclusion was based on the tests carried out by a specialized technical team from the department.”
It is actually usual in tropical and subtropical ocean waters.
So, even if it’s not dangerous we would recommend to avoid those area during few days.
Dubai has plenty of beaches, have a look on Dubeach. It is the perfect opportunity to get to know other beaches and enjoy the warm waters of Dubai without any risks.

The first Night Swimming Beach in the UAE
Remember, it used to be prohibited to swim after sunset in the UAE, but since last night the rules have changed!
Indeed, thanks to the installation of two “Smart Power Poles”, tourists and residents are allowed to swim until midnight at Umm Suqeim 1 Beach, around one kilometer away from the Burj Al Arab. This makes Dubai, the first city in the UAE to offer a night swimming beach.
Those 12-meter Smart Poles are powered by wind and solar energy and provide enough light to illuminate the sea. The sensors trigger automatically the light, which will turn off at midnight.
The swimming area is marked by small red lighting floats and is controlled by lifeguards. It should stretch on 125 meters on the beach and 30 meters into the sea.
The poles were designed by D Idea Media, which also created the Smart Palms Wifi station and the Smart Changing Room in the same beach.
As a result, Umm Suqeim 1 Beach can be called today, the smartest beach in the world.
