The high-rise apartment towers of Marsa Dubai and Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR) are a popular choice for expats. The many hotels are home to numerous restaurants and bars, and The Walk at JBR is packed every evening with people socialising and strolling. Roads in and out do get congested due to the construction of the new tram line, which is due to be completed in late 2014. The narrow road running alongside The Walk is where people come to cruise with their expensive cars, resulting in additional traffic at weekends and evenings.
Several new buildings are being constructed on the beach, which means that JBR residents do have to put up with construction noise and excess dust for the foreseeable future.
Much of the neighbourhood is walkable with easy access to amenities. If you have a car check if the property you want comes with a parking space.
