In a city that’s full of awe-striking buildings, Dubai Marina stands out as the home to some of Dubai’s newest and most fascinating buildings and attractions where visitors can relax in comfort and luxury along the waterfront.
Exploring Dubai Marina
Dubai Marina is a relatively new attraction in Dubai. It’s characterised by a dramatic skyline of skyscrapers and residential apartment blocks, and looks particularly impressive when illuminated at night. With many constructions still in development, Dubai Marina is changing all the time but there’s always something for visitors to explore and enjoy.
One of the best ways to see Dubai Marina is simply to walk around it. The marina area has been built with several kilometres of walkways, ideal for an afternoon stroll or a moonlight walk after a romantic meal.
Throughout the day and night, visitors flock to Dubai Marina for its world-beating selection of restaurants, cafes and shops. There are occasional markets in Dubai Marina as well and it is also popular to hire a yacht to enjoy a cruise around the area.
Dubai’s Palm Islands
One of the most striking attractions near Dubai Marina is the Palm Jumeirah, part of the Palm Islands project. The creation of these artificial islands, each shaped like a palm leaf, has been of Dubai’s flagship building ventures of the 21st century. The Palm Jumeirah has already added several kilometres of coastline to Dubai and, although it looks fantastic from Dubai Marina at ground level, is best viewed from above.
