Overlooking the magnificent Burj Al Arab, Kite Beach is certainly one of the scenic beaches in Dubai. The soft white sand, clear blue water and seagulls' smooth takeoff and landing are all a treat to one's eyes. Add to that, beautiful sunsets with yachts in the background that are picture worthy.

Kite Beach has a lot more to offer besides basking in the sun and taking a dip in water. It has plethora of fun activities to indulge in.

Try paddle boarding and kayaking: This one is my personal favourites. You can rent SUPs  and kayaks, paddle out to sea and watch the beautiful sunset.

Kite surf: You can see a lot of kite surfers surfing in the waters and try it yourself. This can be a great holiday water activity. Watching kite surfers in action is so beautiful and vibrant.

Take a test dive: If you want to have a diving experience, you must try the trial dive sessions offered by a lot of diving institutes. Who knows, this might inspire you to become a certified diver!

Cover the running track: Kite Beach is a runner's/jogger's paradise. It has a 14-km running track. Who doesn't want to run with a beachy breeze?!

Show off your skating skills: Kids can have a lot of fun in the skating area. Slip on those roller blades and get skating!

Gather the gang for a round of volleyball: If you are not keen on getting in the water, try rolling in the sand with a fun sport like volleyball. Gather a group and get in action but be prepared to wait for your turn since the area's almost always occupied.

Fancy a jetski?: You can find a lot of water sports such as jetski, flyboard and jetpack. Get wet and wild with rentals.

Bookworm haven: Kite Beach has a cute library set up for those who fancy a good read. Lay out that mat, tuck your toes in the sand and chill with fun title.

Check out food trucks: Explore the varieties of food trucks that have made Kite Beach their home. There's something to suit every preference. Your tummy will thank you after the fun outing!
