Swimming in Dubai: tips and advice please
MvG MauritiusCharter Member
I will be in Dubai for a family vacation from 30 March to 6 April and would like to get a good bit of training done as well.
- the Hamdan Complex' olympic pool looks marvellous (though pricey). But do I really need to register in advance and bring a medical declaration every time I want to go for a swim, as the website seems to indicate? Or can I just show up, buy a ticket and swim?
- any other good lap swimming pools (with more relaxed entry requirements...) with early opening hours that forum members can recommend?
- are there any OW swimmers/swim groups that I could join for a (few) sea swim(s) that week?
- is it possible to swim around the Palm Al Jumeirah or the other palm tree (or will I get arrested )? Anybody interested to come along and give it a try?
Hi Milko, there's a Facebook topic/ question on this one, recently raised, although from a women's perspective.
Here is the link - maybe answers that might help, will appear.
I see there's a water quality issue and two beaches recommended.
