Dubai is a city that is forever breaking new boundaries in terms of architecture, luxury and scale. It’s therefore no surprise that the city is home to the world’s most spectacular and luxurious man-made marina. Dubai Marina is a stunning waterfront development which – while relatively new – is already home to some of the city’s most exciting attractions, breath-taking buildings and highest standards in luxury and comfort.
Dubai Marina is characterised by its new, cutting-edge skyscrapers and apartment blocks. The marina itself has been built with lots of interconnecting walkways, making it easy for visitors to wander around and soak up the scenery and atmosphere. Indeed, taking a stroll in the afternoon or evening is one of the most popular – and pleasant – ways for locals and visitors to enjoy this fascinating part of the city. People flock to the marina – not just for its stunning views but for its world-class restaurants, cafés and boutique shopping opportunities. You may even be able to hire a yacht to enjoy this intriguing area from the vantage point of its waterways.
Dubai Marina is made up of several community neighbourhoods – each with their own features, characteristics and attractions. Dubai Marina Towers was the first development to reach completion, and is comprised of six residential towers served by a chic market promenade and an impressive variety of cafés and restaurants. Opposite the prestigious and exclusive Dubai Marina Yacht Club, and overlooking what is perhaps the most scenic part of the bay, is Marina Promenade.
Another development – Marina Quays – actually extends over the water in a remarkable feat of architectural engineering. Park Island is situated on the west side of the marina, and in addition to wonderful views and a collection of fine dining restaurants, there’s also easy access from here to some of Dubai’s most exquisite beaches.
Film buffs will love Reel Cinemas, a boutique movie theatre complex featuring luxurious seating and gourmet food – plus a great selection of films, of course. Meanwhile, Dubai Marina Mall offers a more refined and intimate shopping experience compared with some of the city’s bigger shopping centres. There really is plenty to keep the whole family entertained at Dubai Marina.
