The Ever-Changing Skyline as Seen from The Sea

As the new season begins, we find Dubai’s magnificent skyline is bigger than ever and continuing to grow. In a city that lays claim to the world’s tallest building, the world’s biggest shopping centre and the world’s largest fountain, a good place to view it in all its glory can seem difficult to find . . .

Until you get onto the water.

Framed by the sparkling waves of the Arabian Gulf, the panorama provided from the water is breath-takingly beautiful and is set to become even more so. Already home to almost 200 fully completed skyscrapers of over 150 metres, there are a further 50 of these under construction throughout the city. Another 23 of our skyscrapers stand at over 300 metres and these mighty giants are about to be joined by another 11. Alongside the Burj Khalifa, Dubai’s ever-changing skyline is certainly a sight to behold, with the distance of the water offering an all-encompassing perspective.

Aside from the glittering heights and sights of the city itself, a yacht trip provides an excellent opportunity to spot dolphins, sharks and of course, Dubai’s unique and striking Palm Islands.


The construction of these beautiful man-made islands began in 2001, with the first residents moving onto the island of Jumeirah, which cost an estimated $12 billion to build, in 2007. As well as residents, which include some of the world’s rich and famous, Jumeirah is home to beach clubs, bars, luxury hotels and apartment towers and an array of eating experiences from around the world.

Other notable landmarks around the Arabian Gulf include the world’s largest observation wheel (Ain Dubai), the Burj Al Arab, The World Islands, The Dubai Marina and the newly formed Dubai Canal.

From cityscape to island view, getting out onto the sea is (in our opinion of course) the best way to see it all.
