The 1.3 km long Marina Walk along the waterfront is great for a brisk walk or leisurely stroll. It is  also dotted by cafes and restaurants, which means you can sit outside by the water, watching the world walk by. 

You can find premium retail outlets and world-class restaurants within walking distance. The Dubai Marina Mall has over 130 shops and 20 eateries, a state-of-the-art cinema for an immersive experience, and a Waitrose supermarket where one can find all the essentials.

Gym facilities like the Grosvenor House, Hilton JBR, and InterContinental Dubai Marina offer excellent gym facilities and indulgent spa treatments. Other fitness hubs, such as The Warehouse and NRG Fitness, run regular classes to help you get relaxed. If you’re the adventurous sort, head over to Skydive Dubai to conquer the skies!
