In this photo dated Thursday, July 26, 2012, a public transport boat crosses the water as people enjoy swimming at Jumeirah open beach with the city skyline in background, Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Not all Dubai beaches are hidden behind high-end hotels and waterfront palaces. Jumeirah Open Beach is one of the city's most popular, drawing everyone from Russian tourists and Arab families to Indian and Pakistani migrant workers relaxing on their day off. One you've had your fill of the white sand beach and sparkling Gulf waters, turn around to take in the view of Dubai's futuristic skyline. Facilities include showers and a rare cycle path. The nearby Jumeirah Beach Park offers more greenery and less ogling, but the upgrade comes with a 5 dirham ($1.36) entry fee. (AP Photo/Kamran Jebreili)
