If you like walking along the surf edge and dream of buying property by the sea, it is only in Dubai where you can find a best choice of accommodation with gorgeous sea views, for during the last six years the coastline in the emirate increased by 6%.
According to satellite imagery used in a research by Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC) the sea hasn’t deprived the emirate not of a single inch of land in recent years. Moreover, the number of promenades, corniches and beaches in Dubai has increased a lot thanks to the efforts of local developers and the emirate's authorities.
If we talk about beaches, in Dubai it is impossible to get bored with the same sea view. Here you will not only be able to live by the sea, but also will have an opportunity to visit different kinds of beaches, for the choice is really wide. In particular, the number of promenades and landscaped beaches has increased thanks to such developments as Al Mamzar Corniche Beach, Jumeirah Bay Island, Jumeirah One Beach, Pearl Jumeirah, Umm Suqeim 1 and 2, Beach, as well as due to the most spectacular project of recent years, the Dubai Canal.
To protect man-made islands of Palm Jumeirah and Deira a number of new breakwaters and sand barriers was built aimed for protecting land from erosion and big waves, so the weather in Dubai really does not matter, the sea is always calm enough for sea trips and entertainment.
MBRSC research has divided Dubai coastline into eight zones including the districts of Deira, Dubai Creek, Dubai Maritime City and Dubai Marina. The results showed that the number of sites suitable for construction on the coastline increased up to 0.3 - 2.22%, which in practice means hundreds and hundreds of square meters of the picturesque coastal territory.
Yousuf Hamad Al Shaibani, director general, MBRSC, said: “The results of the study shows the vital growth Dubai is witnessing, as the land expansion is the result of man-made projects, many of which are developmental and touristic. This reflects the emirate’s long-term plans for the tourism, commercial sectors and infrastructure.”
