In this northerly area, most Dubai surfers go to Shipwreck Beach at Al Ashkarah, especially if decent sized, powerful surf is on the cards. The reef extends out a fair way, so at low tide long, mellow righthanders break 100-200m (300-600ft) off the beach. If it’s small, there’s a surfable shoredump at high tide and Al Ashkharah Hotel is handily situated.
