Beach buffs in Dubai are rejoicing because there is now the first Night Swimming Beach in Umm Suqeim 1 , one kilometer away from Burj Al Arab Hotel. That means a brightly lighted beach until midnight. And it is equipped with a rescue station and a fully equipped qualified crew of rescuers. Moreover, there are as well rescue bicycles to ensure a safe environment for beach visitors.
The Smart Poles
Twelve meters high smart poles were installed to brightly light up 120 meters wide around the pole and 50 meters deep into the sea water. The smart pole operates from clean energy generated from the wind and sun.
The poles are even equipped with digital screens to display marine warnings. The screens light green to tell its good to swim but red light indicates the danger of swimming.
This is a first of its kind in the world that Dubai initiated in support of its goal of making Dubai a happy place as well as producing sustainable projects.
