Geography and access

[Add Jumeirah 3 location map here]

[J1] Jumeira Rd, Beach Rd, and Jumeirah Beach Rd all refer to the same road.

  • Jumeirah 3 borders the communities of Jumeirah 2, Umm Suqeim 1, and Al Safa 1. The NW side of Jumeirah 3 faces the ocean.
  • Umm Al Sheif Road divides Umm Suqeim 1 and Jumeira 3 communities, and accesses Sheikh Zayed Rd (SZR) (Abu Dhabi-Dubai highway exit 46), however access is only in Abu Dhabi direction going onto SZR, and only from Sharjah direction when exiting the motorway.
  • Jumeira Road (Jumeirah Beach Rd) runs through Jumeirah 3 near the coast.
  • Al Wasl Road runs between Jumeirah 3 and Al Safa 1 communities.
  • Al Athar Road or Street (also called Al Attar Rd) divides Jumeirahs 2 and 3. It connects indirectly to the Sheikh Zayed Road Interchange 2 (Safa Park interchange) (access in both directions) via Al Hadiqa Road (Meydan Rd) at the Safa Park and Choithrams traffic lights.


Not much from a tourist or visitor perspective but Sunset Shopping Mall is a quiet beachfront shopping mall with boutique shops and a few coffee shops and restaurants, including one with a terrace view over the ocean. Along the Beach Rd are several fast food hamburger places, some with drive-thru. The Jumeirah corniche walk and jogging path starts here, on the beach at the end of Al Athar Rd.
