The 11km Boardwalk at Palm Jumeirah in Dubai was officially opened on Monday by Nakheel chairman Ali Rashid Lootah, marking the completion of another new attraction at the world-famous island.
The AED150 million Boardwalk was created by building out over the rocks of the island’s protective breakwater to produce a six metre wide promenade – and a new destination for fitness, leisure and socialising.
Accessible from 14 points along the crescent and on the doorstep of the island’s growing number of hotels and resorts, The Boardwalk boasts a wide variety of food trucks, some of which are already open for business, Nakheel said in a statement.
Lootah said: “The Boardwalk is another shining example of how we use creative thinking and innovative engineering to bring more facilities and attractions to Palm Jumeirah.
“This unique destination is one of a series of new projects under way on the island as part of our ongoing commitment to further enhance this world-famous landmark.
“It’s already proving a popular spot for jogging, walking and sightseeing among both residents and tourists, with many more visitors expected as Dubai’s peak tourist season gets under way.”
