Dubai Marina is a district in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Dubai Marina is an artificial canal city, built along a 3-kilometre stretch of Persian Gulf shoreline. As of 2016, it has a population of 45,395. When the entire development is complete, it will accommodate more than 120,000 people in residential towers and villas.
Dubai may be more famous now for its skyscrapers and huge shopping malls but the emirate’s biggest project is the preservation of the region’s natural ecosystem. The Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve is an 87-square-mile protected area of Arabian desert; that’s nearly 5 percent of Dubai’s total land area.
