Welcome to Jumeirah
Before there was the Palm Jumeirah and Dubai Marina, Jumeirah was the place where everybody went to realise their Dubai dreams. The emirate’s answer to Bondi or Malibu stretches from the Etihad Museum to the Burj Al Arab. In between are excellent public beaches, urban lifestyle malls, boutique shopping and a mix of Mercedes and expensive 4WDs in villa driveways. The new Dubai Canal cuts right through and will reshape the district for years to come. New islands and peninsulas, meanwhile, continue to spring up offshore.
