Coastal Living: 5 Things To Do in Dubai Creek Harbour
Discover the EMAAR-based harbour district and its famous hotspots.
The city’s up and coming commercial hub and lively residential district – Dubai Creek Harbour, provides an experience that can be best described as, heavenly. Many visitors, ex-pats and residents of the secluded sub-community collectively agree, that its tropical scenery is enveloped by an immaculate backdrop.
As part of ‘The Lagoons’ community, Creek Harbour is within envious reach of the city’s major landmarks including Dubai Marina, Downtown Dubai and Palm Jumeirah. The area is a well-versed combination of retail, hospitality and dining experiences.
Unsurprisingly, the neighbourhood also gave rise to many holiday furnished apartments for monthly rent to accommodate Dubai’s growing tourists, ex-pats and frequent flyers. Some of its dominant attributes, however, remain the views – strategically circulating from the Downtown Dubai skyline on one side, to the community’s very own yacht club on the other. Residents of the community can even park their yachts at ease.
Since its initial launch, the EMAAR development showcased promising apartment layouts across 1,2, and 3 bedroom apartments in Dubai. For those of you, ready to venture into this upbeat community, read on and let our experts walk you through the area’s go-to spots.
