Dubai is a popular beach destination due to its proximity to the Arabian Gulf, whose crystal blue waters are great for swimming, diving, and other marine activities. Rocky Real Estate provides a list of communities in Dubai where beachgoers can rent or buy a home.
PALM JUMEIRAH is a man-made island named from its shape, similar to that of a palm tree. It is well-known for its luxurious villas, each with its beach area and outdoor lounges, which are mainly found in the Fronds region. However, if you want a more affordable option, you can rent an apartment near the island’s trunk with public access to the beach. Palm Jumeirah is heavily developed, with high-end stores, restaurants, hotels, and the world-renowned Atlantis Resort near the island’s tip. More new complexes are being built on the Palm Jumeirah.
JUMEIRAH BEACH RESIDENCE, also known as JBR by inhabitants, is a vast residential complex within the Dubai Marina community along Dubai’s coastline. Jumeirah Beach Residence offers six clusters of high-rise apartment units with sea views, a significant consideration for individuals choosing to live here. The Walk, a beachside promenade with various restaurants, shopping establishments, hotels, and cafes, is right outside your door. JBR’s major attractions are also water activities. Bluewaters Island, Dubai’s most giant observation wheel, Al Ain Dubai, will be completed soon. Bluewaters Island is also being developed with residential apartments, retail, and hotels.
JUMEIRAH / UMM SUQEIM This is the location of the Burj Al Arab, the world’s most costly hotel with a one-of-a-kind architectural design. The earliest seaside mansions in Jumeirah and Umm Suqeim are typically vast in size. If you’re lucky, you might be living in an upgraded villa with a private pool, a lift, plenty of parking, and other facilities. For aquatic activities, this location offers more excellent seclusion than JBR. The newest attractions in this region include Box Park, Citywalk, and La Mer, which provide various activities for the entire family.
Keep an eye out for Dubai Harbour, a new waterfront development connected to JBR that will include the Dubai Lighthouse, a luxury hotel, and an observation deck. It will also have a 150,000-square-foot cruise liner terminal that can accommodate 6,000 people and entertainment and retail space, a yacht club, a shopping center, hotels, and apartments. Sunrise Bay and Beach Vista are two upcoming residential skyscrapers that will offer one to four-bedroom units.
Beachfront and sea-view properties are the most in-demand types of living in Dubai, and they are also ideal for investors who can lease their property for short or long periods.
