Dubai Marina

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Dubai Marina is an artificial canal city built along a two mile (3Km) stretch of Persian Gulf Shoreline. In order to create it, the developers brought the waters of the Persian Gulf into the site of Dubai marina, creating a new waterfront. There is a large central waterway, excavated from the desert and running the length of the 3 km site.More than 12% of the total land area on the site has been given over to this central public space.Although much of this area is occupied by the marina water surface, it also includes almost 8 km of landscaped public walkways.

The Marina entirely man-made and upon completion, it is claimed to be the world's largest man-made marina.. There is a publicly accessible foreshoreway around the marina and some sections of public oceanway along the beach with views to Palm Jumeirah. Its largest development is the Jumeirah Beach Residence.
