This beach goes under both names - it's a fairly happy go lucky kind of place, and one of Dubai's few public (see free) spaces. Local workers come down as well as the tourists and families - be prepared for impromptu volley ball games and big family picnics.

This might not be the best spot for sunbathers though, you might get a bit more attention than you'd enjoy. If you're set on it maybe wait for the girls only day.

The name apparently comes from the beaches popularity with Russians - who like to sunbathe standing up?!?!?
