Located in the heart of new Dubai, Dubai Marina is a pleasant district located around a two-mile-long artificial canal which meets the sea at either end.
Dubai Marina is composed of numerous skyscrapers that form residential towers, commercial centers, and luxury hotels. The Dubai Marina canal is surrounded by a pleasant walkway (Dubai Marina Walk), an area filled with cozy restaurant terraces offering all styles of cooking.
Ideal at sunset
Dubai Marina is one of the best zones in the city to take a walk. When night falls the area comes to life in lights and color, providing a charming and lively setting for not just a stroll but to dine and to have a drink.
Dubai Marina has its own shopping center, Dubai Marina Mall, with more than 160 shops offering a whole range of items.
If you want to enjoy impressive views of Dubai Marina from a high vantage point, the best choice is The Observatory restaurant-bar located on the 52nd floor of Hotel Dubai Marriott Harbour. From here you will also have the best views of Palm Jumeirah.
