Dubai's southernmost districts are popular upmarket residential areas, but they also brim with luxurious beachfront resorts. Aside from tanning and swimming, diversions here include strolls along the Dubai Marina waterfront, The Walk at JBR and The Beach at JBR, and – soon – rides on the world's largest observation wheel. Jutting into the Gulf is the Palm Jumeirah, the smallest of three planned artificial islands, and home to fancy resorts and the Aquaventure water park. Meanwhile, further south near Jebel Ali, the theme parks of Dubai Parks & Resort beckon.
