There’s no better way to enjoy the waterfront than The Walk at Jumeirah Beach Residences (JBR). This 1.7 km buzzing beachside boulevard is one of Dubai’s most popular shopping and fine dining promenade.
After a quick 10-minute taxi ride from the Visa Dubai Innovation Centre, grab a seat at one of the pavement cafes and do some people watching, check out the street performers. This is also a great place to explore a number of boutiques, grab a bite to eat or even catch a movie at the open-air cinema.
With so much to do and see, you might forget that the beach is just across the road. This wonderful stretch of white sand is a great place to relax while catching some rays. There are showers, toilets and changing rooms housed in distinctive panelled pods and a cool offshore water park.
Insider Tip: To get a real taste of Middle Eastern culture, sign up for a beachside camel ride.
