 Friday, May 15, 2020 


After the  loosening of Covid-19 restrictions by the government of Dubai some beaches on the Palm Jumeirah have begun reopening

Earlier a new a set of guidelines was issued easing restrictions for private beaches in hotels and other sporting activities. Among the permitted activities are watersports, boating, jet-skiing, sky-diving and biking activities but permits from the authorities will be required.

Outdoor activity exceeding five people will remain prohibited along  indoor activities, parties and other events.

Facilities like sauna, spa and pool facilities, gyms, fitness, and health clubs are excluded from the prescribed guidelines.

The supreme committee of crisis and disaster management said that hotels are allowed to reopen their private beaches only to their guests while enforcing stringent preventive measures, the most important of which is mandatory physical distancing between individuals.

 Sofitel Dubai the Palm has reopened its beach, with appropriate social distancing measures in place and Five Palm Jumeirah Hotel & Resort has also reopened its beach with access available for all in-house guests, while Andaz Dubai the Palm has also confirmed its beach is open.

Following the social distancing standards, Anantara Dubai the Palm has reopened its beach while non-motorised water sports activities are also up and running at the Palm Jumeirah resort.

Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach will shortly reopen for guest bookings  and Luxury hotel group One&Only Resorts is also preparing to reopen its beaches.

Later this week private shorelines at both the One&Only Royal Mirage and One&Only the Palm will open to hotel guests.

 As per mandate all hotel beaches will open to in-house guests only, and no day-passes can be purchased for access by non-guests.

Strict social distancing rules should be followed – there must be a four-metre distance between two groups of people on beaches or sun loungers.
