When you are into beachfront living, Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR) is the place to be. The area is equally popular among locals, residents, and tourists. Located at the beach, JBR is one of the most popular places for new projects in Dubai. The hustle and bustle of the JBR area is one of the things that drive people here when looking for entertainment or a relaxing stroll along the 1.7 km long coastline that borders the area. This chic community boasts all the amenities that residents look for and even though many parts of JBR have already matured, there are still new projects available with the possibility to buy off-plan properties.
JBR is situated in one of the most sought-after locations, right along the shore and about 13-15 minutes from Sheikh Zayed Road. The residential buildings in the JBR area are divided into 6 main parts, which are ranked in order of popularity here:
As you can see, Sadaf is the most popular cluster and consists of 8 luxury towers that come with an abundance of amenities. The units come in the form of studios and 1-3 bedroom apartments, making it popular among young professionals and small families.
Nearby roads include Sheikh Zayed Road, Gran Al Sabkha Street.
Dubai Marina, Jumeirah Lake Towers, Emirates Hills, Dubai Internet City, Jumeirah Heights.
Splashpad at The Beach is also often called “water wonderland” and is a water attraction park for kids with a giant tipper bucket, water squirters and climbing frames.
The Beach at JBR offers white sands with clear turquoise waters, stunning skylines, beach entertainment, adventure, fitness, fashionable boutiques, exclusive restaurants/pubs, street food, movies, events, etc. making it a popular hangout in Dubai.
There is a total of 35 high-rise residential towers in the JBR area while there are also 5 hotel towers. Offering stunning views of the beach and the city, the units can be characterized as spacious and stacked with high-quality amenities. The apartments usually have 1-3 bedrooms while there are also luxury penthouses with up to 6 bedrooms. Although there are lots of properties for sale, keep in mind that freehold properties can be quite pricey here, as it is one of the most in-demand areas in Dubai.
JBR is the ideal place if you don’t like going by car. The area is well connected to the metro with 2 stations in its vicinity and taking the tube is a faster alternative to using the car during rush hour. The area has its own tram system while several buses also serve the area. The design of JBR is pedestrian-friendly, making it possible to get almost everywhere on foot.
For people who do drive a car, there are dedicated parking garages in the basements of the residential towers. Although some of these towers also offer paid visitor parking, you may need to drive around the area a bit to find a free spot as they tend to fill up quite quickly. Add to that the frequent traffic jams, and you will understand that it is better to avoid driving in this area when you are lacking time.

When it comes to amenities, there are few neighborhoods in Dubai that can compete with JBR. Whether you are looking for fine dining, exclusive shopping or a fancy bar to get some drinks, you will find numerous options in this district. When you reside here with your family, you also won’t have a hard time to find a decent nursery for your offspring while there are also plenty of medical facilities in and around the JBR area. However, there are no schools in the district and so you will have to go to a neighboring area for this purpose. This could be inconvenient due to the frequent traffic congestion.
The JBR area is coming of age and therefore the majority of the developments in the area are already part of tight-knit communities. However, there are still some new and ongoing projects with off-plan projects and units for sale. Here are some of the options that homebuyers and investors have in Jumeirah Beach Residence.
