Those aged 60 and above now have a new outdoor location in Dubai they can visit to soak up some sunlight and get a spot of fresh air. The Pointe, a relatively new development on Palm Jumeirah, has announced that it is open to the city's older residents.

The destination is also open to children of all age groups and, this week, it confirmed it's pet-friendly, too. A sign will be put up soon announcing the changes, making it a top family-friendly location.

This means those of all age groups (and their furry friends) can stop by for a stroll along the promenade, views of Atlantis, The Palm or a bite to eat. Restaurants such as Bareburger, Seafood Kitchen, Argentina Grill, Per Te and Kyo at the beachfront destination are currently open to all.

This falls in line with the gradual ease of restrictions across the emirate.

At the moment, those over the age of 60 and under the age of 12 are prohibited from entering malls, co-operative societies, supermarkets and retail stores located outside shopping centres.

However, restaurants outside malls, as well as a number of outdoor neighbourhoods, are allowing children and older residents of all ages to enter. This includes The Walk at Jumeirah Beach Residences.

Social-distancing guidelines must continue to be followed by everyone and wearing face masks is a must.

Since many destinations and restaurants still have age-related restrictions, however, it is best to call individual venues directly and confirm you will be allowed to enter before venturing out.
