Observation Deck at 300

Top choice in Marina Breakwater

Ride the lift to the 74th floor (your ears may pop along the way) for panoramic views looking down on the skyscrapers and coastline below. The '300' refers to metres above sea level. The coffee shop here serves the highest high tea in the city. Admission includes Dhs50 towards food and drink.

The entry is right next door to the Jumeirah's main hotel entrance.
