Hotel beaches in Dubai are now open but with conditions
The Dubai Governement has announced further relaxation of lockdown measures that include the opening up of hotel beaches in the emirate.
According to Arabian Business a source familiar with the matter has revealed that Dubai hotel beaches are set to reopen today after weeks of being closed down. Bars, saunas and stream room facilities will remain closed, along with nightclubs and spas, according to new guidelines for hotels distributed by Dubai's government on May 12.
But this doesn't mean that you can just stroll down over to the hotel for a spot of some sun and surf. The hotel beaches are only open to hotel guests.
Recreational activities in open spaces such as cycling, water sports and skydiving have also been allowed but only as long as it is less than five people part-taking in the activity.
However, there are strict measures in place for beach-goers. At hotel beaches there must be a 2m clear distance between people and 4m clear between two groups of people.
Some of the Dubai hotel beaches have taken to Instagram to announce that they are now open.

Hotel beaches and restaurants in the UAE's Northern Emirates like Ajman and Ras Al Khaimah have been open and operating with certain restrictions.
A few Dubai restaurants are slowly opening up their doors, keeping in mind the restrictions put in place by the government to stop the transmission of coronavirus.
This follows the announcement by the Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management on Friday, April 24 regarding the partial reduction in restrictions on movement in Dubai during Ramadan.
