Here are five idyllic spots for a traditional sundowner
An elegant beachside venue amid chic Arabian architecture in a secluded location overlooking The Palm, Jetty Lounge is a Dubai classic. With low-slung seating on the sand and glowing lamps, it’s the ideal place to gaze out over the ocean and watch the sun go down.
Perched at the end of a private wooden pier jutting into the Arabian Gulf, Pierchic within an Arabian-inspired building offers a spacious terrace. The view of the adjacent Burj Al Arab is complemented by the soft sound of lapping waves as the sunset floods the sky with golden hues.
In the middle of the ocean, at the end of its own jetty, is 360°. This unique circular venue boasts some of the best views in Dubai – with a sweeping panorama of the iconic Burj Al Arab and the glistening waters of the Arabian Gulf.
For a taste of glamour and laid-back sophistication, Nikki Beach, an urban oasis nestled on Pearl Jumeira, is the perfect spot for sundowners – relax on one of the lazy chairs and lap up the magnificent views of the sparkling sea, swaying palm trees and golden setting sun.
