Dubai Marina

Located out of Dubai past the Palm going towards Jebel Ali. Built along a two-mile stretch of waterfront, this man-made marina has created a complete waterfront community with apartment towers and villas set against a watery backdrop. The development itself is as big as a medium sized UK/US town accommodating more than 120,000 people. With public walkways, loads of great restaurants and cafés, plus yachting, fishing and a beach on the doorstep, coupled with a vibrant nightlife, it's a great environment that can be split into two specific areas:

  • JBR Walk, a recently opened area by the sea with plenty of shops and great places to eat. It’s right next to the beach so you can wander across from the beach at lunch time. Lovely and busy with good vibes in the evening.
  • Marina Walk - the promenade area right in the marina itself which is surrounded by tower blocks. It’s an amazing, almost futuristic and surreal place especially at night when everything is lit up – again loads of shops and restaurants, and only 300 yards from the Marina Metro station.

* This attraction is at or near a stop on a Big Bus Tour.
