Jumeirah is a coastal residential area in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It is one of the most exclusive and sought after residential areas along the Dubai coast, and is popular among both expatriates working in Dubai and many tourists visiting the emirate. Historically, Jumeirah was occupied by Emirati fishermen, pearl divers, and traders, making it an exciting area in Dubai to explore. In the 1960s, the area saw tremendous expansions, which led it to become an area for western expats. This is why Jumeirah is known as the original expat neighborhood.
The name Jumeirah means beautiful in Arabic and true to its name, this residential area offers picturesque waterfront views and lush gardens.
