Bluewaters Island is a new artificial island located 984 feet from the coast of Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR) next to Dubai Marina. The general developer of this AED 6B (USD 1.6B) project is Meraas Development LLC. Construction began in 2013 and was completed in 2018. The area includes residential properties, hotels, shops, cafés, yacht dock, and entertainment areas, as well as 1476-feet of white sand beaches. Bluewaters Island is expected to become one of the most popular tourist destinations in Dubai since it has all the amenities of a luxury beach holiday. The island offers fine dining, luxury shopping, and Ain Dubai, the world’s tallest Ferris wheel.
When it is fully operational, Bluewaters Island will house 10 mid-rise residential towers with apartments and townhouses, two premium hotels, 2,400 parking spaces, and 164 food and entertainment venues. The island is connected to the mainland by pedestrian and road bridges, and it is also accessible by car and bus.
