Admit it, Dubai is not among the top destinations that popped into your mind when you think of pet-friendly cities to hang out in. This is primarily because the first thing most people associate with Dubai is its scorching hot weather.
However, as expat families living in Dubai started to grow in number in recent years, Dubai is slowly turning into a pet-friendly place. In fact, more venues around the city accommodate guests with their pets and are being safely and respectfully lodged.
If you are planning to go out in Dubai with your pet dog, do check out some of these dog-friendly beaches:
Dog-Friendly Beach Destinations in Dubai
Palm West Beach
This beach has a 1.6 km long boulevard where dogs wearing leashes can walk with their owners. The beach boasts several cafes along its waterfront that accommodate guests with dogs as long as they wear a leash. Jones the Grocer is among one of many beachfront cafes where you can stay for hours.
The Pointe – Palm Jumeirah
The Pointe is the perfect go-to beach if you long to experience peaceful waterfront views with your dog. The beach allows dogs as long as they have their leash on and do not swim in the water. Pet owners are also advised to bring their dog’s waste bags and dispose of them properly.
Beach of Golden Tulip Al Jazira Bungalows, Ghantoot
Just a quick 25 min drive from the popular Dubai Marina district, this idyllic beach is a perfect place for you and your furbaby to relax and meet other like-minded dog owners. Make sure to check out fantastic beach experiences by Flopster during the weekends that include dog-friendly watersports activities, beach yoga and more. Pre-booking is essential, so do get in touch with the Flopster team via their social media.
Aside from these beaches, you can also opt to go to dining places that welcome guests with their four-legged friends. Below are some of these dog-friendly dining venues:
Arrows and Sparrows, The Greens
Located at The Greens, Arrows and Sparrows café caters to guests with pets and children. Along with best-tasting coffee, the café offers casual dining. Art lovers often visit the place as the café displays local art. Your dog is allowed to stay on the outside terrace of the café.

This place may be more dog-friendly for you as the venue offers watering bowls for your pet after playing at the spacious lawn area of the café. As usual, dogs should wear their leash, and owners need to take care of any waste.
