Dubai’s Al Sufouh Beach has been identified as the second-most eye-catching beach across the globe. This was discovered in the new research which was conducted by the opulence travel company Kuoni.
Al Sufouh Beach, which is also popular as the ‘Hidden Beach,’ ‘Secret Beach,’ or ‘Black Palace Beach,’ is situated in the middle of the grand Burj Al Arab and the world famous Palm Jumeirah Island, in Dubai. The beach derived it’s name from it’s secret location, that is only accessible by a tapered sandy trail gushing between the regal palaces of Al Sufouh. Due to the shallow waters, Al Sufouh Beach is actually a consummate place for children to travel over underwater, without much safety concerns.
