Dubai Marina Overview
At the heart of ‘New Dubai’ the Marina is more than 3 km long and is encircled by a broad, landscaped promenade, a favourite among strollers, walkers, joggers and cyclists. Along the waterfront are numerous restaurants and cafes where you can sit at sunset and watch the surrounding skyscrapers begin to light up to create a spectacular backdrop as the evening dinner cruises glide out to sea.
Most of the skyscrapers are residential and the Marina has its own mall with over 130 shops, a supermarket and a six-screen cinema. There are several hotels and clubs buzzing with night life and by day you can hire a boat, take a tour, or catch one of the regular ferries to Dubai’s historic old town of Deira.
Ninety percent of the 200 or so skyscrapers surrounding the Marina are residential blocks including Princess Tower, the tallest residential building in the world. Add to that the 40 Jumeirah Beach Residence towers catering for 15,000 occupants and it is not hard to understand why the Dubai Marina district is the most densely populated neighbourhood in the country and such a vibrant community.
Like Jumeirah Lake Towers beyond the Marina, this place is a favourite among singles and young families alike.

Dubai Marina Amenities
The many hotels in the area provide plenty of choice for the ever-popular Friday brunches, where for a small fortune hard-working people can enjoy a four-hour eat and drink fest. To recover there are plenty of gyms, health clubs and spas around the Marina, while shared pools and public recreation areas provide open space for relaxation and exercise.
The main north-south highway running through Dubai passes right by the Marina, linking it to all parts of the Emirate and to Abu Dhabi which is about an hour’s drive away.
Unlike many other locations in Dubai, the Marina is a neighbourhood where owning a car is not a prerequisite. It is particularly well served by public transport, having two stations on the metro which runs the length of the city. The Mall of the Emirates is a 15 minute ride, Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa 30 minutes, and the airport just under an hour.
The tram system has helped to ease traffic congestion around the Marina enabling local residents to get about swiftly and easily.
