Dubai Marina

When Dubai Marina opened, it was the world’s first man-made marina of this size. Not in “one day Rome was built” as they say. This is also how the Marina was built in phases.


In 2018, the entire marina complex was inhabited by around 55,000 people. The target for the Marina expansion, however, is 120,000 inhabitants. No small undertaking for Dubai if you ask me.


We often hear the question, “Is Marina or Downtown better?” The answer, however, is: “it depends”. Both places have their own distinctive characteristics. Marina is a place frequented by the wealthy of this world. The expensive yachts, exclusive clubs and general vibe of the place begs for the adjective “luxury”. However, if you take a stroll through Marina’s streets in the evening, you may also conclude that there is something for everyone.
