I have loved the ocean ever since my mum brought me to one of the beaches in the Philippines when I was a kid. Since then, it has been my favorite go-to place when I need to unwind and be free from all the negative thoughts. Good thing, there are beaches here in Dubai like La Mer. I can still be at my favorite place whenever I want to.
Since it’s already summer in the UAE, it’s the perfect time to go beach bummin’ and get tanned. When my roommate asked me if I can go with her, I did not hesitate. La Mer beach is just a 10-minute bus ride from where I live so it’s really accessible. And I love how Meraas developed the whole area. It’s family friendly with variety of restaurants, kid-friendly activities, a jogging track and a waterpark just adjacent to the beach. How cool is that? It is the place to go if you want a well-spent weekend.
We went there around 7am so it’s not really that hot and humid. We grabbed some fruits from a supermarket nearby and breakfast from McDonalds. I was surprised to see a lot of people who are already swimming considering that it is still early. Can’t blame them though. It tends to get really hot around 10am-12pm. How did I know? Because we stayed there until 12pm! It was scorching hot but that did not stop me from continuing to swim. Imagine the tan line I have now.
And what do you expect from a beach day with the ladies? Of course, endless stories and photos! We talked almost about everything under the sun! It is one of the best weekends I had so far. I had fun with the girls and it totally relieved my stress.
Now I’m thinking where should I go next!
