Yes, you read it right, the world’s first refrigerated beach is coming up in Dubai. Why, you ask? Because, the filthy rich people may not want to burn their feet from the hot sand.
Whether you think this is crazy and weird, does not matter, because this thing is for real and not a concept. Best part, the luxury super-luxury hotel which will feature this computer-controlled beach will open late next year or early 2010. As DailyMail (UK) explains, “The revolutionary beach will sit next to the new Palazzo Versace hotel and will include a system of heat-absorbing pipes built under the sand and giant wind blowers, designed to keep tourists cool in the searing 40-50C heat.”
