Dubai reopens hotel beaches for guests as COVID-19 movement restrictions ease

Dubai on Tuesday (May 12) reopened hotel beaches but only for guests, state news agency WAM reported on Wednesday.

Hotels would still need to enforce preventive measures, the most important of which is mandatory physical distancing between individuals, said WAM.

Public parks have also reopened but gatherings are only allowed for groups of up to five people. Similarly, sports and recreational activities in open spaces are also now allowed, including cycling, water sports and skydiving.

After weeks of 24-hour COVID-19 movement restrictions, on April 28 malls in Dubai were allowed to partially reopen with precautions in place.
