A once sleepy fishermen town, Jumeirah is now an exciting and exotic playground for tourists around the world. The glitzy high-rise buildings, large resorts, pristine white-sand beaches, warm azure waters, adventure sports and massive shopping malls are what push thrill-seekers and beach lovers to go on Jumeirah Beach holidays.
On the south eastern shore of the Persian Gulf, is the gorgeous manmade white-sand Jumeirah Beach. This stretch, which gets its name from the surrounding Jumeirah district, boasts crystal-clear waters and a majestic city backdrop – ideal for those after the best of both worlds. From the beach you can see ‘The World Archipelago’, a set of Dubai’s famous manmade islands, and parallel to this is the Palm Jumeirah – another manmade island resembling the shape of a palm tree. Both, the archipelago and the palm shaped island are best known for their posh apartments, glitzy hotels and spectacular restaurants.
Holidays to Jumeirah Beach are nothing short of luxury, with 5-star resorts such as The Atlantis, The Palm, FIVE Palm Jumeirah Dubai, Hilton Dubai Jumeirah, Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Rixos The Palm Dubai, Sheraton Jumeirah Beach Resort and many more gracing it’s shorefront. The iconic Burj Al Arab hotel, which is often considered as the world’s only 7-star hotel, is also situated here – and well worth a trip to the sky-scraping reservation deck! When you’re not lounging on the sand, visit the Wild Wadi Water Park, an award-winning attraction ideal for kids (big and small!), explore The Dubai Mall, go on a desert-safari, and indulge in first-class cuisine – with equally magnificent views.
