Just strolling through the JBR area, you'll be reminded of Europe. It is among the busiest and liveliest neighbourhoods in the city, It's hard to believe that the area was once a quiet, sandy piece of coastline. Fast forward to 2021, and JBR is home to stunning beachside hotels, numerous residential towers and some of the city's most popular spots and attractions. It's a wonderful place to take a stroll down pedestrian strip The Walk or along The Beach, and really comes alive at night.

Activities3D Blacklight Minigolf Dubai

Try a round of golf in space or along the ocean floor featuring neon backlighting and 3D effects painted on the walls. Each illuminated room has a different theme to it.

There are so many restaurants, hotels and cafes and shopping areas to meet your friends and have a good time. All in all, JBR is the place to live to me."
