Good news – you might just have enough time to enjoy Dubai sunshine before it becomes unbearably hot.

Per a directive from Dubai Tourism, Dubai private beaches are back in business under strict guidelines and to celebrate this positive step towards some form of normality, we have put together a roundup of our all-time favourite beachside hotels.
