Geography and access

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

  • Umm Suqeim 1 lies between the communities of Jumeirah 3 and Umm Suqeim 2, and on the other side of Al Wasl Road is the community of Al Safa 2. The NW side of US1 faces the ocean.
  • Umm Al Sheif Road runs between Jumeirah 3 and US1. It continues to join Sheikh Zayed Rd (SZR) (Dubai-Abu Dhabi highway) at exit 46). Getting on to the motorway is only possible in Abu Dhabi direction, and exit from SZR only from Sharjah direction.
  • Jumeira Road (Jumeirah Beach Rd) runs through US1 near the coast.
  • Al Wasl Road runs between Umm Suqeim 1 and Al Safa 2 communities.
  • Al Manara Road runs between US1 and US2, provides access to and from Sheikh Zayed Rd in both Abu Dhabi and Sharjah directions via a cloverleaf interchange (exit 43), also Al Quoz areas on the other side of SZR.


Since the renovation of Jumeirah Fishing Harbour, there are a couple of restuarants, shops and cafes making it worth a visit there. Otherwise not much from a tourist or visitor perspective but there are also cafes and restaurants along the Beach Road.

  • Dubai Offshore Sailing Club (DOSC) - yacht and boat club restricted to members and guests. Has restaurant which serves alcohol (cheaper than most bars in Dubai).
