La Mer (Dubai) – Beach, Shopping & Boardwalk in Jumeirah

Kategorien: Reiseblog, Asia, United Arab Emirates, Dubai

We always find it nice when we can discover corners that are new or that we didn’t know before. This is what happened to us with the trendy La Mer district in Dubai. We had seen some pictures on the internet and were very excited about what to expect there.

Things to know about La Mer

Located on the seafront between Pearl Jumeirah Island and Daria Island, Dubai’s La Mer district offers stunning views of the Dubai skyline and the Arabian Gulf. La Mer is currently considered the trendiest beach promenade and combines the most beautiful of town and beach. On an area of 1.2 square kilometers and a length of 2.5 kilometers, the trendy district was opened in October 2015 and since then offers everything that goes for a perfect holiday day: beach, shopping, food and various entertainment offers.

La Mer is divided into a northern (North Island) and southern beach area (South Island) and both bays are connected to the new leisure center on an artificially created peninsula. There are over 130 shops and restaurants here. In the centre – the so-called The Wharf – there is a large water park (Laguna Waterpark), a cinema, several boutiques and numerous leisure activities such as table tennis or fountains.

The whole district takes up the theme of the sea and combines modern industrial design in combination with washed-up objects made of wood, rusted anchors, barrels and ropes. Among other things, this should create an awareness of the topic of sustainability and we really liked it visually!

The beaches of La Mer

A wide fine sandy beach, a shallow sloping turquoise sea, almost no waves and pure sun – here you can really endure it 🙂

On the two 2.5 km long beaches is a pretty promenade surrounded by palm trees and numerous shops and cafés. Here, too, you can see the attention to detail: everywhere you will find surfboards, wooden signposts, pirate ships, industrial-design lamps and funny animal sculptures. On the beach you can rent beach chairs with umbrellas and cabanas. We made ourselves comfortable in the shade of a palm tree and enjoyed the atmosphere of La Mer for some time.

Directly on the beach there is currently only one hotel, the Rove La Mer Beach.

The colourful beach houses on the promenade

A highlight in La Mer are certainly the colorful beach houses where the toilets, showers and changing rooms are located. The colourfully painted houses shine in the colors yellow, turquoise, orange or red and are really a great photo motif. This reminded us a little of the colourful beach houses in Muizenberg (South Africa) or Dendy Street Beach in Melbourne (Australia).

The colourful beach houses can be found on both sides of the bay. But we found the more beautiful photo motifs on the northern beach.

Street art and great photo spots in La Mer

La Mer is one of the best selfie and Instagram spots in town. Everywhere you will find lots of street art paintings or colorful graffiti with Arabic phrases like “Yalla Habibi” and “Aloo Keefak” or sayings like “Hello Summer” or “Stay Cool”.

It is definitely worth walking through the small streets of The Wharf for some time. Everywhere you discover new pictures and recognize here how much love and inventiveness were put into the realization of the neighborhood. Here, too, you’ll find the popular photo motif with the angel wings as a mural, which reminded us a little of the famous Instagram spot in Los Angeles.

Unsere Reiseberichte aus Dubai

Dubai ist eine wahnsinnig vielseitige Stadt und hat einiges an Attraktionen zu bieten. In unseren vorherigen Urlauben hatten wir die Stadt nur als klassisches “Stopover Ziel” kennengelernt. Dabei hatten wir nicht wirklich viel Zeit, die vielen Sehenswürdigkeiten der Stadt zu erkunden. Und die Wüstenmetropole ist ein wahres Foto- und Instagram-Paradies. Ein Motiv ist schöner und spektakulärer als das andere. Das höchste Gebäude der Welt (Burj Khalifa), das größte Gebäude der Welt in Form eines Bilderrahmens (Dubai Frame), das größte Einkaufszentrum (Dubai Mall), das größte Riesenrad (Ain Dubai), der größte Blumengarten (Dubai Miracle Garden), das höchste Hotelatrium (Burj Al Arab) bis hin zum größten Springbrunnensystem der Welt (The Plam Fountain) und vielen weiteren.

Hier findet Ihr unsere Reiseberichte über die Stadt der Superlative.
