Dubai Water Canal

Extending Dubai's waterfront

Dubai Water Canal is a 3.2km long waterway that extends from the Creek in Old Dubai through Business Bay, before finding its way back to the Arabian Gulf.

The man-made canal, which opened in 2016, meanders through the centre of the city, transforming the face of Downtown Dubai and turning it into a waterfront destination. Nearby, you will find the magnificent V Hotel and Hilton Dubai as well as the captivating aquatic show, La Perle.

Visitors can run, walk and cycle along the 6.4km waterfront on either side of the canal. Hop aboard one of the many ferry and abra rides that make their way across the canal's calm waters for an especially leisurely afternoon.

Also adorning the waterway are five pedestrian bridges, offering key vantage points to take in Dubai’s glimmering skyline. One of these, known for its distinctive purple-hued archway, was renamed Tolerance Bridge in November 2017, honouring the 22nd International Day of Tolerance.

There are even more plans to develop the public space surrounding Dubai Water Canal with retail shops, a marina, boardwalk and recreational areas, making the lifestyle development a flurry of new activities and attractions.
