Dubai Marina is one of the most fast-developing and prestigious areas in Dubai, which is considered to be both a residential and a holiday resort destination. The distinctive feature of Dubai Marina is its large canal, which is more than 11,482 ft long, with access to the sea from both ends. There are numerous restaurants and cafes along the waterfront, as well as walking, cycling and jogging areas. The community also features its own marina and houses the Dubai Marina Mall, a shopping center with over 130 stores, a 6-screen Reel Cinemas, a variety of hotels, and entertainment venues.


One of the biggest advantages of living in Dubai Marina is its convenient location, as it has easy access to Al Sufouh Rd and the Sheikh Zayed Rd, which connects all seven emirates. Dubai Marina is also in close proximity to Jumeirah Lakes Towers, Dubai Media City, Barsha Heights, JBR, Palm Jumeirah, Dubai Internet City and Umm Suqeim, which are all located 10-15 minutes’ away by car.

On the other hand, Dubai Marina lacks education institutions within its immediate vicinity. However, there are several schools nearby, in the neighbouring areas of Al Sufouh, Umm Suqeim, Al Barsha and The Springs. Most of the schools are located within a 15 minute drive and offer Indian, British and American curricula. At the same time, parents with young children will be happy to know that there are many kindergartens within walking distance both inside and outside Dubai Marina.

Public Transport and Parking Spaces

The comfort of living in Dubai Marina lies in the ease of movement by car or public transport. In most cases, buying or renting real estate in Dubai provides residents with parking spaces. If there is no private parking, one can always use the public parking services. Most of the car parks feature one-hour of parking free of charge.

There are two metro stations (red line) that are close to the community, Dubai Marina (formerly DAMAC Metro Station) and DMCC, which provide easy access to any part of the city. There are also many bus stops and a tram line that run between hotels, Dubai Marina Mall, The Beach at JBR and interlinks with the nearby metro station. The tram makes it easy to get to the Palm Jumeirah Station and then hop on the monorail to visit the Aquaventure Waterpark and The Lost Chambers Aquarium at the Atlantis, The Palm.
