Going Out and About
If fishing isn’t your thing, don’t worry. Umm Suqeim 2 Marina is also a perfect place for everyone looking to enjoy what Dubai has to offer.
A Dubai institution, you’ll find everything from spices and slippers to locally-made jewellery at this popular Arabian bazaar. It’s also a foodie paradise, with over 25 restaurants serving up international cuisine from all around the world including the popular The Meat Co., and Folly by Nick & Scott.
Skydive Dubai & XLine
If you’re an adrenaline junkie that likes to push yourself to the extreme, there are two options for you.
Skydive Dubai is the city’s leading skydiving company, offering tandem jumps with incredible views of the Palm Jumeirah while on your way down. They are also a great option for more experienced skydivers.
You can also try XLineis, the world’s longest urban zipline. Covering a distance of 1km, Xline takes ziplining to a whole new level of excitement, weaving you through the skyscrapers and urban landscape of the marina.
Burj Al Arab
Sitting adjacent to Umm Suqeim 2 Marina, Dubai’s Burj al Arab is a global icon of Arabian elegance. Built on a man-made island 280 metres from Jumeirah Beach, this architectural masterpiece was designed to represent the billowing sail of an Arabian dhow and is a must-visit on any trip to the city.
One of the world’s most daring developments and its largest artificial island, Palm Jumeirah is a haven for both locals and tourists alike. Built-in the shape of a palm tree with a three-mile-long trunk, it is home to some of the most elite luxury hotels and resorts. Tickle your taste buds either at some of the world-renowned restaurants or more casual eateries or visit the Aquaventure Waterpark where guests can ride some of the largest waterslides in the world.
