Jumeirah Beach Residences (JBR) provides residents quality living in high-rise apartments and luxury villas, few minutes from the beach. Its sandy-hued towers and aesthetically built villas are instantly noticeable and attract many non-residents and tourists. The reason JBR is so famous for day visitors is twofold- The Walk and The Beach.
JBR is crammed with some of Dubai’s top hotels, bars, and restaurants, and is one of the region’s leading tourist destinations. The development extends 1.7 km along the Arabian Gulf and is purely a sight to behold. While it has been pestered by traffic woes as of late, a location (perfectly located off the Sheikh Zayed Road and near Dubai Internet City) and great access to public transit such as the metro and the trams make it easy to get to.
Things to do
Shop and saunters by the sea along the “The Walk”, an elegant waterfront strip that is almost entirely outdoors. Along this beachside boulevard, you’ll find a lot of opportunities to quench your shopping thirst with a wide range of fashion, home and handicraft shops and boutiques. “The Walk” also promotes shopping attractions such as Sauce-on-sea, a boutique showcasing local and regional designers, plus a host of international retailers.
But possibly the most handsome offerings at the Walk are the outdoor pop-up markets, where you’ll find stalls offering jewellery, food treats and homewares, all the while being serenaded and entertained by street performers. And you cannot afford to miss the brand-new shopping area called The Beach, and the majestic open-air cinema.
JBR, without talking about the beach, is incomplete. One of the advantages of living in JBR is that residents can relish a day in the sun anytime by heading over to the open beach which is a mere a short walk from most residential villas in the neighbourhood. The long beach is why most tourists and visitors prefer to JBR as well. The sandy stretch is continually fluttering with activities like yoga sessions, beach sports, and even camel rides.
There are also various water sports one can be a part of, including parasailing, jet-skiing, and wakeboarding. JBR is an ideal weekend getaway. If rejuvenating by the beach isn’t quite enough for you, there are millions of exciting activities in JBR. Sea Breeze at The Beach is the prime beach sports venue in the area where you can play tennis and volleyball on the beach. If you’re looking for something more out there, you can go for deep-sea fishing and breath-taking boat cruises, mostly around Dubai Marina and Palm Jumeirah.
If it’s the delectable breakfast you’re craving for, rush to Eggspectation. The Canadian import serves up a huge range of egg-based breakfast, lunches, and dinners. Then you have Saladicious Deli, which has an extensive range of healthy salads and limitless fresh sandwiches. Kosebasi offers scrumptious Turkish breakfast cuisine, and lip-smacking sausage and eggs. Such mouth-watering food can make anyone’s day brighter.
