Fodor's Expert Review Jumeriah Beach Residence (JBR)
Stretching through the seaside apartment towers to the seashore, this shopping zone is a narrow island between the marina and the sea. The Walk is an outdoor waterside corniche for a European-style shopping experience with cafés and casual eateries interspersed among both niche and mainstream retail offerings. The Beach, on the sandy side of the road, has more indoor space, a cinema, plenty of kids play areas, and a swathe of interesting restaurants. There is also public beach access, and an exterior market in season.
