Park
“Jumeirah Beach Park is ideal for a family picnic on the weekends. It has supple sand and grassland, the beach-park hybrid has clean toilets and dressing rooms, a swimming pool, volleyball courts and ample parking. It is a favourite weekend hangout for many of the city’s residents and reasonable price means it’s also usually swamped.”

“Authentic Mexican food is served here! If you’re craving some fresh guacamole (made in front of you) and some excellent quesadillas – then Maria Bonita is a must. Located in a residential area in Jumeirah, it strays away from your conventional restaurant set up. Best part: you can get sombreros upon request. ”
