The world’s tallest tower, Burj Al Khalifa, I think is architecturally the nicest building in Dubai. It has a bar on the top floor called Atmosphere which gives access to the highest point of the city.

I rate the kite surfing beach by far the best public beach in Dubai, as it has lots of facilities around including volleyball nets, football AstroTurf, bathrooms, kite surfing equipment, etc. It has a really large span of beach and not much construction around, which is rare for the city.
An organized desert safari with desert-duning is the way to go! The tours can be done in the morning, afternoon or over night. They treat you to an arabic buffet, a belly dancer show, camel treks, shisha, duning, and more.
Karama is one of the oldest areas of Dubai. It's not properly maintained and has a bit more attitude than the heavily polished, bling buildings which cover the rest of the city. A wander around this area, a stop for some Indian curry and cheap shopping is a good afternoon activity.
