About this photo
Lights illuminate palm-lined paths that join the urban mass to the natural landscape of Jumeirah Beach, Dubai. The pristine white-sand beach stretches along the Persian Gulf. The modern skyline looms in the background with the iconic Burj Al Arab positioned on a man-made island at the north-eastern end. Hundreds of floors are lit up in a variety of colours depicting every building's individually designed contours.
Luxury hotels, resorts and housing developments are all found in these skyscrapers, boasting daytime views across the turquoise water and a night view across the deep blue.
Deluxe sun loungers are set out with dried palm leaf sunbrellas on the immaculate desert sands ready for the morning bathers. Relax in luxury on Jumeirah Beach on any of Insight Guides' trips to Dubai.
