As you know night swimming is now allowed in Dubai, but from today 84 lifeguards to man the beach, which opens from sunset to 12am, and Dubai will be the first emirate in the UAE to allow night time swimming!
It was announced last Sunday. Two smart power poles have been installed on Umm Suqeim 1 Beach that are powered by wind and solar energy to produce a strong light to illuminate the sea, they are also the maker of smart palm Wi-Fi stations.
Hussain Nasser Lootah, director general, Dubai Municipality, said: “We are focussing on ensuring the best safety measures for everyone and that’s why we have appointed many lifeguards,” .
So let’s head out to the beach and flaunt that beach body during the night if you’re afraid of sunburns.

Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead @ National Theatre Live Screening
Daniel Radcliffe, Joshua McGuire and David Haig stars in Tom Stoppard’s brilliantly funny situation comedy, broadcast live from The Old Vic theatre in London. David Leveaux’s new production marks the 50th anniversary of the play that made a young Tom Stoppard’s name overnight. Against the backdrop of Hamlet, two hapless minor characters, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, take centre stage. As the young double act stumble their way in and out of the action of Shakespeare’s iconic drama, they become increasingly out of their depth as their version of the story unfolds.
As an educational institute, we do not charge for our evening programme, as it is not run for profit but out of a passion for theatre.
