La Mer Dubai: Beachfront Destination in Jumeirah 1

La Mer Dubai is a beach destination that offers fun, shopping and entertainment for residents of Dubai. This property has been developed by Meraas, which also developed other famous new properties like Last Exit, Citywalk Dubai, Al Seef Dubai, Outlet Village, Bluewaters Island, etc.

This beach waterfront district is formerly known as the Jumeirah Public Beach. The public beach is still accessible, but it now has new and exciting add-ons that make for a more pleasurable entertainment scene. We were able to visit La Mer on a weekday evening.

La Mer Dubai at Jumeira 1

I remember my wife and I dropped by the beach a few years ago as this was a public beach called Jumeirah Open Beach 1 (the beach near Al Satwa district).

One afternoon as well, I tried to visit the beach but it was closed without prior announcement. I remember they put up walls mentioning that the area has been closed for development without any notice when or what they were going to do with the beach. Lo and behold, around 2 years after, La Mer Dubai was announced and this was the project being launched.

La Mer Dubai spans over 1.24 million square meters of space. We were surely surprised to see that they even accommodated an underground parking area. As we got out of the car, we kept asking ourselves, “How did this happen? Above us is the beach, and here underground is the parking area.” This thought alone made us feel that anything is possible in Dubai.

We strolled along the area to check out available shops, cafes, restaurants and the overall design of this place. Children and families are more than welcome to drop by and experience La Mer Dubai.

there are also taxis that will take you from point A to point B

We also dined in one of the restaurants in the area for a night of open air cuisine while enjoying the winter season. It’s great to have visited this place before the start of summer in Dubai.

In La Mer, you will appreciate the street art and paintings and the design that makes for a nice walk.

We would love to visit the place again and have a day of swimming at the beach. There’s also a waterpark that will be open so this is something to look forward to from this destination too.
