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.

Great way to see the city at night
This was a great way to see the city at night, especially in late June. Lots of fun and some good information about key sites. If you want fancy or leisurely, then this probably isn’t for you, but we loved the speed.

Dubai Marina Dinner Cruise with Live Music
This cruise was everything I hoped for and more. Incredibly relaxing and somewhat romantic if with a significant other. Just as suitable for family and friends as well. They had a saxophone player and he was wonderful. Exceptional service and the food was absolutely delicious! The Dubai Marina is stunning and this was the perfect way to take it all in. Highly recommend.

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.
