The Beach, a laid-back beachfront destination by Meraas, has more to offer this winter with new additions and special deals that add an extra sparkle to your visit. What’s more, a walk on the beach may see you driving back home in a BMW.
UAE Exchange, a leading homegrown financial services provider, has opened its branch at The Beach right in time for its annual winter promotion, titled ‘Win Big’. The 45-day campaign that started on 17 November gives you a chance to win AED10,000 every day and a BMW car every week if you use select services, including money transfers, foreign currency exchange, gocash uploads over US$500 or purchase of National Bonds over AED3,000. Customers who pay their credit card bills and utility bills together are also eligible for the draw.
The Beach has a lot more in store for you, whatever your plans are for the season. Whether you want to go on a gastronomic journey, shop till you drop, burn off those holiday calories, or just lie back and relax – in a movie theatre or on the sand, you can take your pick from the destination’s wide variety of offerings.
Go on a Binge
Well-known for its eclectic range of eateries, The Beach is now home to more gastronomic delights.
