Dubai Marina
Updated: 28th January, 2023

Dubai Marina

The 3km-long, densely populated Marina is encircled by 180 residential skyscrapers, hotels, a mall, a cinema, cafés and restaurants.
Dubai Marina
Dubai Marina is an area located within Dubai.
The developer
The project was developed by Emaar Properties.

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.

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.

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.

Like Jumeirah Lake Towers beyond the Marina, this place is a favourite among singles and young families alike.

Transport & Access

Commute times by car

From Dubai Marina it takes roughly 20 minutes to drive to Dubai Mall, 12 minutes to Palm Jumeirah, 19 minutes to Burj Al Arab and 5 minutes to The Walk JBR.*

Airport proximity

Dubai International Airport (DXB) is roughly 45 minutes' drive and the new Al Maktoum International Airport is roughly 32 minutes' drive.*

Road access

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.

Public transport

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.

* Drive times are calculated by Google Maps and assume fastest route in typical traffic conditions.

Available property


There are eight sub-communities in Dubai Marina. Learn more in the following guides.


Pier 7, next door to the mall, describes itself as a ‘seven-storey culinary destination’, while close by is the Dubai Marina Yacht Club.

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 Walk is a bustling boulevard between nearby Jumeirah Beach Residence and the beach and one of the best places for strolling or just sitting and watching the world go by.
