Dubai’s spectacular coastline is such an awe inspiring phenomenon that it is often referred to as the eighth wonder of the world. With three artificial palm tree-shaped islands and an archipelago called The World, it’s little surprise that the city has some of the most unique and breathtaking beaches on the planet. So if skyscrapers and the city life aren’t quite your thing, head to the sea! To help you make up your mind, we’ve put together a list of some of Dubai’s best beachfront properties.
1. 1 JBR
Luxury living comes in various forms and if you know Dubai, you definitely know what we’re talking about. For some, it’s a gold-plated bathtub, for others, it’s having the sea right before your eyes and a few steps away from your bed. It’s to the latter crowd that 1 JBR caters to. This brand new beachfront development by Dubai Properties is set to debut in 2019, and will primarily consist of two to four bedroom apartments, spacious five bedroom penthouses and sprawling sun decks to let you take in the jaw-dropping sight of the Arabian Gulf.
2. Palm Jumeirah
Possibly what started the beachfront living phenomenon in Dubai, Palm Jumeirah is undoubtedly a wonder of the modern world. A regular haunt of the celebrity investors, it’s a guaranteed destination of the who’s who from around the world. So if you’ve always wanted to live next to someone famous, this is your best bet.
As far as luxury beachfront living goes, it’s hard to top the Palm. Most villas located in the fronds have access to their own private beaches via their backyards. There are high-end luxury apartments in the trunk of the man-made island which offer unparalleled views of the sea.
Adding to the exclusiveness of Palm Jumeirah are the luxurious hotels, including the Kempinski Hotel and Residence Palm Jumeirah, Fairmont The Palm, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, One&Only The Palm, Anantara The Palm, Rixos the Palm, and of course, the Atlantis, a themed hotel based on the underwater lost city of Atlantis.
3. Jumeirah Beach Residences
Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR), promises its residents year-round tranquil walks along the beach, stunning views, and upscale ‘flea markets’, where residents swap items. Luxury apartment living at its finest, JBR is a paradise for beach lovers. Although plagued by traffic woes lately, the stylish waterfront community still delights residents and visitors alike. Amenities such as outdoor showers, changing rooms and washrooms coupled with upscale shopping and dining options at the beach-side boulevard (The Walk) make JBR a uniquely popular destination.
4. Bluewaters Island
Following hot on the heels of other Meraas projects like La Mer and The Beach, Bluewaters Island is an upcoming man-made island located just off of JBR. It’s claim to fame will be the world’s largest observation wheel, Ain Dubai (standing 210m tall). Contemporary, cool and family friendly, the mixed-use island will have everything from luxury apartments to penthouses and townhouses.
