The Ultimate Guide to Dubai Marina

Hotels in Dubai Marina offer you a key to exploring one of the city’s most coveted neighbourhoods. Here is the uptime guide to Dubai Marina so that you can make the most of your trip to the Gulf coast. From sunbathing at the beach to adrenaline-filled adventures, this is sure to be an unforgettable experience. 

Welcome to Dubai Marina

Dubai Marina is a 7km stretch along the Gulf coast. It is a luxurious area with many yachts perched along the water to show for it. By way of introduction, there are beaches to be enjoyed, as well as a promenade, mall, and activities for you to enjoy. It’s no wonder this is one of Dubai’s most loved coastal spots. 

Things To Do in Dubai Marina

Now, no ultimate guide is complete without a list of the top things to do during your visit. 

Since you’re coming to a beachfront destination, we’ll begin at the shores. You can relax in style at the beach, with many options to suit your fancy. Whether you want to lay on the sand, hire a bed, or even a private cabana, you’ll be sure to enjoy your time here. The waters are calm and temperatures comfortable, so swimming can definitely be on the agenda. 

If you’d prefer, you can enjoy the waters while out at sea. There are many cruises you can take and water sporting activities to enjoy (including the world’s largest inflatable water park, AquaFun Water Park). If you want to enjoy the coast without getting sand between your toes, you can enjoy the promenade which is lined with palm trees giving the area a Miami-feel. There are also a number of cafes and restaurants here where you can enjoy the sea and city vistas as you tuck into a delicious selection of international cuisines. 

If you’re after an adrenaline rush, head to X-line Dubai, where you can experience the world’s longest urban zipline at 80km per hour. 170 metres above the ground. If that’s not enough, Skydive Dubai offers instructor-led free-falling. If you’d like a sense of the height without the falling sensation, you’ll love a visit to Ain Dubai, the world’s largest ferris wheel which takes visitors on a leisurely round trip. 

As we mentioned, this is a high-end part of Dubai, so you can bet your bottom dollar that there are ample opportunities to shop. Dubai Marina Mall is a retail and entertainment destination where you can shop, dine, and experience the Dubai mall culture first-hand. There are also boutiques along the promenade if you prefer, as well as a multitude of other shopping options close by in Downtown or along the nearby Sheikh Zayed Road.
