Dubai Marina: Luxury and Panorama Redefined

Dubai Marina, popularly known as ‘New Dubai’, is a man-made marina that stretches 3 kilometers (2 miles) across the shoreline of the Persian Gulf. It is an artificial canal city, which is considered one of the top districts to visit in Dubai and is fast becoming the most sought after district for tourists visiting Dubai. Dubai Marina is known for its breathtaking panorama that dazzles up in the sky with the towering skyscrapers and the brilliant panoramic views you get from the top. Something that is noteworthy about Dubai Marina is that it caters to anyone and everyone – right from a solo traveler traveling to experience the rush, or couples wanting to spend their honeymoon in luxury, or a family wanting to spend some quality leisure time enjoying the glory of Dubai.

One of the key highlights or aspects about the Dubai Marina is that, due to its proximity to the open sea, there is a very good chance you may spot sharks or whales in the waterbody, especially during the migratory season. This entices several tourists to visit this district during their Dubai tour.

The Dubai Marina is located in Interchange 5, extending all the way from Al Sufouh Road to Dubai Media City. It consists of The Beach, and its largest development, Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR). Dubai Marina was constructed by taking inspiration from the Concord Pacific Place, which is a development along False Creek, Vancouver, Canada. This is well within the city limits and pretty much accessible from any parts of the city, thus making it convenient for the travelers to reach here considering how prominent this location is.

Let us now see everything you need to know about the Dubai Marina as you embark on your dream Dubai tour!
