Guidelines on Swimwear in Dubai (Do's and Don'ts)

When you're ready to hit the beaches in Dubai, there are a few things to know to make sure you have a blast and show some respect. It doesn't matter if you're a local or just visiting, these tips will help you rock your beach time in this lively city.

Do's:

  • Wear a Cover-Up Outside the Water: While your swimwear is appropriate at the beach and by the pool, it's courteous to put on a stylish cover-up, beach dress, or tunic when you're not in the water.
  • Check Beach Rules: Different beaches may have varying rules, especially private beach clubs. Always check the specific rules and dress codes for the beach you plan to visit.
  • Respect Local Customs: Dubai is a culturally diverse city with a mix of local and expatriate residents. Be respectful of local customs and traditions by dressing modestly when outside the beach areas.

Don't's:

  • Avoid Topless or Nude Sunbathing: In Dubai, it's not acceptable to go topless or engage in nude sunbathing in public areas - it's actually illegal!
  • Don't Wear Revealing Swimwear Outside the Beach: While bikinis and stylish swimwear are appropriate at the beach, it's best to avoid wearing them in public areas like malls or restaurants.
  • Don't Forget Sun Protection: While not directly related to swimwear, it's essential to apply sunscreen to protect your skin from the intense Dubai sun.

Where to go and what to wear:
