Dubai Marina is one of the main sites of the city. It combines with other residential areas devoted to leisure along the canal that leads to the luxury hotels Al Sufouh. It is an artificial harbor and its design viewpoints were included to enjoy the views.
At night it is particularly beautiful Friday afternoon, you should visit the Marina Market because you can buy gifts, clothes, and jewelry.
The best way to appreciate Dubai Marina is a walk along the waterfront, watching the diners having dinner on the terraces of the restaurants located along the canal, and letting dazzled by the lights of skyscrapers. Here property prices are high and two-bedroom apartments cost from Dh 1 million (€ 200,000).A marina is a great place for water sports enthusiasts.

There are parking areas at the harbor entrance, next to the exit from the busy intersection 5 Sheikh Zayed Road, where you will find a taxi rank.
The boardwalk, left and right of the entrance, is where most restaurants are located, families invade on weekends and while the children play in the decorative fountains, parents smoke a shisha (water pipe) in a cafe. From the marina, you can admire the construction of a hundred skyscrapers.
