We've always said, anything worth doing is worth over-doing, or at least doing it in comfort. Gotta love the ingenuity of the hospitality folks in Dubai. If you've ever burned your tootsies on the blazing sand in Florida or Hawaii, you'll love this high-tech day at the beach!
It's Fun to Know: The Cure for "Burn-Your-Feet" Beach Sand
From the land of indoor ski slopes in the middle of the desert and man-made islands in the shape of palm trees comes the latest in luxury recreation: an artificially cooled beach.
The Palazzo Versace resort in Dubai has hired an engineering firm to make sunbathing bearable during the area's 122-degree summer days. A complex system of underground heat-absorbing pipes cools the sand - cool enough to lie on. Aboveground wind turbines send cool breezes over beachgoers. The resort will also feature cooled swimming pools.
The ocean is on its own.
