Jumeirah is a large coastal district in Dubai, which is located on both sides of the Jumeirah Street, a road which runs parallel to the coastline. The road is a hip and happening place, dotted with restaurants, fast food joints, art galleries and the like.
Loved by locals and tourists alike, the weekends, in particular, see large numbers of people visit the beaches along this area to indulge in games, jetskiing, kitesurfing etc. It's not exactly the most wallet friendly destination in Dubai, but gives a good feel of the modern side of this city. Adding to the beauty of the place are the art murals that have recently come up on buildings on both sides of the Street, which depict traditional life and modernity in the UAE.
