    Dubai Marina is a lovely spot to run round early in the morning. There’s lots of boats, nice restaurants and a mall. It’s a lovely place to spend some time

    The greatest spot for swimming, lounging, and sunbathing in Dubai is the most well-liked public beach. There are lots of entertaining activities at the beach for all people. A wide selection of dishes from the eateries near Dubai Marina and the beach. The public beach area is large enough to accommodate all the beach activities.

    Visited Dubai Marina Mall.

    Well air conditioned and large shopping mall with high end shops, cafes and mixture of restaurants in the food Court, from fast food to smoothies.

    Arcade/ soft play area near the food Court for children to play and also has a cinema.

    Lots of smaller shops if you walk along the marina side (small supermarkets etc) and many restaurants to choose from.
    Free WiFi in the mall.

    You can do different routes (see ferry website) but I did the 2hr trip from Al Ghubaiba to the other terminal at the Marina. I specifically picked this rather than a dhow boat or yacht cruise because it covered the downtown area for the classic skyline view rather than just Palm down to the Burj Al Arab.
    I was not disappointed.
    You can get super photos of the old town area, the dhows, downtown skyline, Burj Khalifa, canal, Burj Al Arab, Atlantis hotels and Marina area all from the angle of the water - which I really liked. It was also only about £10 for this trip so really economical.
    There are seats in the ferry but hard to get good photos through the windows so best to be outside. There are no seats outside and you cannot sit on anything there without getting a row so be prepared to stand for a while if doing this way. You need to sit down inside when at one of the stations but then they let you back outdoors again.
    There is a small kiosk for sandwiches and snacks including hot sandwiches like tuna.
    The ferry leaves at a set time and this journey is only at 1pm either from Al Ghubaiba or leaving from the Marina and doing the other way, so there is no return journey with this particular route (there is with the shorter ones).
    It goes a bit faster than you think and you need to hold on to keep steady at times so be careful when standing outside.
    Definitely worth it for the unrivaled views though.

    The Walk is jam packed with food and beverage options, shops and entertainment.

    It is pleasant in the day, just a short distance from the beach, and becomes very lively after dark.

    Traffic can be extremely busy so better to get dropped nearby and walk in.

    Bricks4fun is a cute little lego playarea for kids. This place is in JBR with amazing beaches and shopping area around so you can leave your kids at this playarea and can finish your shopping as staff is so friendly and loving. The place is really neat and hygienic.

    This area has lots of great food and beverage options, plenty of which look out to the sea and Ain Dubai.

    There is also now the licensed Pavilion area, which is an excellent addition, and a Roxy cinema.
