Jumeirah Beach

Jumeirah Beach Residence (also known as JBR) is a 1.7 kilometres (1.1 mi) long, 2 square kilometres (0.77 sq mi) gross floor area waterfront community located on the coast of the Persian Gulf in Dubai Marina in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Jumeirah is the most famous beach area in Dubai and the preferred choice of home for many foreign ex-pats living in the city. It is bordered by Bur Dubai to the north and Palm Jumeirah to the south.

The Beach

The Beach at Jumeirah Beach Residence is a retail complex constructed on the actual beach in front of JBR by Meraas Holding, a company owned by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, vice-president and prime minister of the UAE and ruler of Dubai. The development, comprising four distinct plazas, occupies the bulk of the beachfront between the Hilton and Sheraton hotels and houses a number of levels of parking as well as seventy retail and food and beverage outlets, alongside entertainment facilities.

The Beach provides a view of the Ain Dubai (formerly the Dubai Eye) observation wheel on Bluewaters Island, an artificial island.

In Jumeirah, there are two essential landmarks that simply cannot be missed: Burj Al Arab, considered to be the best hotel in the world and the icon of the city, and Palm Jumeirah, the most famous man-made island on the planet. The best way to get an ariel view of the island is to take a helicopter ride.

In Jumeirah, you can also find some of the best beaches in Dubai, including Jumeirah Beach Park, Umm Suqeim Beach, and Open Beach. If you have a large budget, we recommend going to the beach club at Jumeirah Beach Hotel, where you can almost touch the Burj Al Arab.
