Crossing the Creek
Once the entryway to the Gulf’s most successful pearl-diving port, the Creek’s legendary presence is still felt today, with fishermen and merchants criss-crossing the calm waters in their traditional dhows. Visitors can also journey along the 3.2km long waterway that now winds its way from the Creek through to Business Bay thanks to the landmark urban development, Dubai Water Canal.
With an irresistible combination of heritage and hospitality, home-grown concepts and world-renowned brands, the Dubai Creek’s latest attraction – Al Seef – reveals another side to the city. A new cultural hub for discovering the area’s fascinating Bedouin roots and traditions, the district offers an authentic flash-back to the lifestyles of past generations. Stretching for 1.8kms of the Dubai Creek shoreline, the pedestrian-friendly Al Seef development includes a fully-operational marina, family-friendly dining boulevard and souk-inspired shopping.
