Between Dubai Marina and the sea lie the 40 towers that constitute Jumeirah Beach Residence, otherwise known as JBR. The Walk stretches for a mile (1.7km) along the coast between JBR and the beach.
With its restaurants and cafes, hotels and shops, The Walk is more than just a promenade. It is a popular place for shopping, dining or to idle your time away watching the world go by.
You will find concerts and exhibitions taking place at several spots along The Walk, but arguably the best entertainment is the nightly parade of Ferraris, Bentleys and other glossy marques as they crawl along the cobbled street, their drivers proudly showing off their precious automobiles.
There are eleven hotels along The Walk with restaurants and bars licensed to sell alcohol, as well as around 50 restaurants and cafes and more than 60 shops and businesses.
The Beach lies between The Walk and the sea and offers more restaurants, shops and a cinema.
