A rare treat in Dubai is the Walk at Jumeirah Beach Residence, offering one of the few opportunities guests have to stroll at their own pace through a promenade or shops, restaurants and entertainment options.

The buzzing beachside boulevard offers the opportunity to satisfy your retail cravings with an array of fashion, home and handicraft shops and boutiques.
The area features shopping attractions such as sauce-on-sea, a boutique featuring local and regional designers, plus a host of international retailers.
Another highlight is the range of outdoor pop-up markets where you can check out stalls offering jewellery, food treats and homewares, as well as take in performances by street entertainers.
Also not to be missed is the adjacent shopping area called the Beach and the open-air cinema.
After a day of shopping, grab an iced latte at French café Paul, or sit down for a meal at one of the numerous restaurants dotted along the strip – Ramusake is a top pick for an indulgent dinner.
