Dubai is renowned for its luxury hotels, restaurants, malls by the dozen, and many other ways to spend money like there is a hole in your pocket. In this blog series, we will look at lots of ways to enjoy yourself in this amazing city, for free. Today we visit ‘The Walk’ Jumeirah.
Built along the base of towering Jumeirah Beach Residences, the Walk has developed into one the most popular places to visit in Dubai. The bricked road runs the full length of the massive development and skirts the wonderful coastline. It is lined with many restaurants for any taste, coffee shops, hotels, a cinema, fashion outlets and boutiques, home and handicraft shops, outdoor gym equipment, photo booths, street performers, a cute Saturday market and many other cool surprises! The best bit, a gorgeous beach buzzing with activity that’s free to access. So grab yourself some comfortable shoes and enjoy a lovely walk and a picnic on the beach (assuming you are not tempted by all the amazing places to spend your hard earned money).
In the evening the place becomes a hive of activity as you’d be forgiven in thinking that the whole of Dubai has descended upon the area. The place becomes popular with couples and families taking a stroll and a bite to eat, so grab a seat and watch the diverse mixture of personalities and cultures of those wandering around, and the amazing sports cars that patrol the street.
One suggestion, get there early if you are driving as spaces are limited, or catch the metro and walk 10 minutes through the lovely Marina, which offers many other views and places to eat and drink. The Walk Jumeirah is definitely a place to try whether you live in Dubai, or are lucky enough to be visiting.
