Dubai Marina

When the weather is nice outside, I like to run the path along Dubai Marina right by the water. When I first moved to the neighborhood four years ago, it wasn’t a very nice run because of all the construction and detours. But now, almost all of the trail down by the water is paved and it’s not a bad run at all.

I took these photos on my iPhone during one of my runs in November last year. I don’t know why it’s take me so long to post them.

There are always fellow joggers as well as cyclists, rollerbladers, and kids on their scooters and skateboards. I even saw a lady jogging in her all-black abaya with what I think were (or I might have imagined it) reflective strips on the edges of her sleeves.

There are also kayakers in the water and sometimes, I see teams of dragon boaters practicing as well.

Yacht Club by Marina Walk:

Yacht Club across the bridge from JBR – it is licensed to serve alcohol but only indoors as the license doesn’t apply to the outside terrace.

It’s good to see that new restaurants have opened up along the Marina since the last time I ran this path in early 2011.

Dubai Marina Restaurants - Chinese Village


Dubai Marina Restaurants - Mexican Continental


Dubai Marina Restaurants - Nando's

This is a bagel place I keep meaning to try – not on the Marina exactly but just up the slope on street level.

And after my run, if I’m feeling for something healthy, I’ll make a smoothie like this raspberry banana one for breakfast.

But more often than not, I end up having bacon, sausage, and scrambled eggs :).
