Dubai Marina

Street H, District 4, Dubai, United Arab Emirates

The Basics

Built during the 2000s, Dubai Marina is one of Dubai’s busiest leisure districts; visitors head here to relax, shop, sightsee, and eat. While strolling along the palm-dotted 4.3-mile (7-kilometer) Marina Walk, you’ll see skyscrapers, million-dollar yachts, and traditional dhows. Top attractions include the Dubai Marina Mall, the Dubai Marina Yacht Club, sightseeing cruises, and the nearby Walk at JBR (Jumeirah Beach Residence), a beachfront shopping and dining promenade.

Many people visit the marina as part of a Dubai city tour, stopping to see the waterway with the benefit of a guide and without the hassle of having to arrange transport. Others join a dinner cruise or hop aboard a luxury yacht.

90 Minutes Speedboat Tour: Dubai Marina, Atlantis and Burj Al Arab
Speed of the boat , interesting facts about the places we visited Great trip, value for money The driver of the boat knows his stuff , very exciting. Only down side we were told we could take off our masks by the guide, he removed his too but was talking to us at close range so I think he should be keeping it on when that close , but other wise a great experience

Beautiful trip! Excellent view on highlights and skyline. Most exciting was the bumpy ride to Al Arab and becoming a little wet ;> Nice crew, who offered taking photos of us in front of highlights.

Dubai Top Five Attractions Tour Including Admission Tickets and Buffet Dinner
Best parts of this tour was the access to Burj Khalifa viewing deck on floor 125 & 124. The view was simply spectacular, especially the Birdseye view of the Dubai Fountain light show. Dinner @ Armani hotel was great with a good selection of fancy food and dessert to choose from. The Dubai canal cruise was good and offered some great picture taken points of some of Dubai”s eclectic architectural building design.

Dubai Marina Yacht Tour with Breakfast or BBQ
This ride was wonderful. I enjoyed it. I gave it a 4 star because the music sucked and the food is not a real breakfast. The music kept skipping. The breakfast is more like a refreshment. They served sliced turkey lunchmeat, sliced cheese, croissants, and sliced fruit; pineapples, orange, cantaloupe, kiwi, honeydew melon and watermelon. I suggest you eat a real breakfast before going on this excursion.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Dubai Marina is a must-visit for sightseers, shoppers, and sailing and architecture buffs.

  • Bring sunglasses and suncrean if you plan to stroll along Dubai Marina Walk—there’s not much shade.

  • Most Dubai city tours include a brief stop at the marina so you can take in the skyscrapers and yachts.

How to Get There

The easiest way to Dubai Marina is to step off the metro at the DAMAC or Jumeirah Lakes Tower stations. You can wander to the marina from either or catch a metro shuttle bus to the waterside. Otherwise, jump in a cab or a number 8 Dubai public bus.

When to Get There

Dubai Marina’s mix of outdoor and indoor attractions make it perfect year-round. It’s popular in the evenings, when many people stroll the Marina Walk to see the illuminated towers and boats and absorb the relaxed vibe over drinks and dinner. For daytime walks or shopping, avoid the crowds and hottest sun by arriving early.

Other Attractions at Dubai Marina

Visitors tend to make a beeline for the 140 stores and restaurants at Dubai Marina Mall or spend their time watching the yachts from a waterside café. Many also head to the north end to take in the super-high, twisted Cayan Tower, while adventure-lovers book rides on the zipline, swooshing along the cable high above the waterway.
