Kite Beach Dubai is the ultimate place for all the kite surfers to gather at the seashore and indulge in a plethora of fun and relaxation. Moreover, Kite Beach is also called the Wollongong Beach as it was named after the Wollongong Campus. This particular beach occupies a land strip between the Jumeirah Beach Park and the Dubai offshore sailing club and was known to be one of Dubai’s primary beaches. Consider yourself lucky if you have your own means of conveyance as the beach is located on the other side of the road and one must have to walk across the Al Manara road junction to get there.
The Ultimate Spot for Kite-Surfing
The kite beach Dubai has gained a reputation of being one of the quietest and less commercialized beach of Dubai, with limited facilities for people to enjoy.

This skate park provides opportunities for all visitors and participants and is the central hub for social opportunities and competitions.
