Residing in the heart of Jumeirah district in Dubai, a stretch of pristine white sand, known as the Jumeirah Beach runs along the seashore of the Persian Gulf. The beach is known to extend from The Palm Island all the way to Dubai Marina district. However, the port facilities are operated from the third island known as Jebel Ali.
The beach is teeming with numerous entertainment hubs, shopping centres and nightclubs where the visitors can enjoy themselves, after spending a joyous hour relaxing at the seashore. The famous Burj Al Arab Tower stands tall at the heart of this beach. Besides this, the visitors can also enjoy in the popular Wild Wadi Water Park and lodge up at the luxurious Jumeirah Beach Hotel and a multipurpose Madinat Jumeirah Hotel.
The Jumeirah Beach is also famous for a month- a long festival known as the "Food, Glorious Food". The festival is conducted every year and the seashore brims with innumerable tourists who travel miles just to attend the mega festival.
Hence, let us get to know the best options on how to reach the Jumeirah Beach for the most joyous experience worth cherishing forever.
Bur Juman is known as one of the major halts situated near the Jumeirah Beach. Hence, a taxi ride from the Bur Juman district up to the beach is preferred by many tourists here. The journey takes an average time of 8 minutes and costs around $10- $13. The average fare is fixed for all the taxis running on this route which saves the hassle of bargaining.
By Metro and Taxi
The second option on how to reach the Jumeirah Beach is a combined ride by Metro and a taxi. Board onto a metro up to the Emirates Tower station which takes an average time of 7- 8 minutes and costs an estimated amount of $1- $2. From there, hire a taxi up to the Jumeirah Beach for $8- $10. The journey takes a mean time of 6- 7 minutes.
However, to avail the metro services, one needs to buy the Silver NoI Card which allows only one adult and children (if any).
Many tourists opt for booking an Uber from the Bur Juman area to the Jumeirah Beach. This has been rated as the best option by many. The journey takes the same average time of 8 minutes just as a normal taxi but costs a minimum of $6- $7.
