Dubai is a city known for its modern architecture and luxurious lifestyle. Burj Khalifa and Jumeirah Beach Residence have been the top tourist spots in Dubai for the longest time. But there’s the newest creation that will surely satiate your luxurious lifestyle - the Bluewaters Island. It is a stylish residence with a selection of international cuisines and shopping outlets. Experience the bliss point between metropolitan living and an exclusive island feel.
What Is Bluewaters Island?
It is a man-made island connected to the Jumeirah Beach Residence by bridges. It’s a full-fledged lifestyle destination with residential buildings, international retail and food outlets, hospitality, and entertainment. It is the latest spot to visit in Dubai.
It is a remarkable home for those who want to live and work within a great community. For some, it can be an investment as it can also be rented out for tourists who are looking for a great place to stay. It offers apartments, a penthouse, and townhomes. Live in a stylish home with a neutral palette and Scandinavian wooden floors, and experience world-class amenities as you go outside.
World-class Recreational Space
Apart from the high-end retail and dining outlets, it’s also filled with amusement hubs like the Ain Dubai, Madame Tussauds Museum, vertical gardens, and many more. You don’t have to worry about the heat because there are so-called “mushrooms” that serve as shades in the walkways. You can stay there to refresh from the long walk or jump to the public beach that is connected to the pedestrian bridge.
Bluewaters Island is accessible and well connected to Jumeirah and Dubai Marina. Most people walk on the footbridge for about 20 minutes from Jumeirah and Marina to avoid the traffic. If you prefer to go there via car, no need to worry about the parking because the underground parking is free for visitors. Another option is via public transport – Dubai Marina tram station is a few minute-walk away from the Wharf Link footbridge.
How Do You Get to Bluewaters?
There are a lot of options to get there. It can be through:
If you are coming from Jumeirah Beach Residence, head over to the footbridge called “The Wharf Link,” and you will be led to the beachside entertainment of Bluewaters Island.
If you are coming a bit far from it, you can take the metro.
