Dubai Water Canal is a lovely spot for a run/walk/bike ride. It stretches all the way through Business Bay to the sea at Jumeirah and is lined with a well sized footpath. Ferries and hire boats regularly pass by and are also a great way to see the city. There is also a waterfall cascading from the bridge under sheikh zayed road which is illuminated at night and parts to allow boats through. As you move into business bay, there are plenty of options to stop and grab a soft drink or a snack but less so as you move towards the sea. A lovely part of the city...

Unless you want a flat place to jog or cycle don’t bother. There is no peace and quiet, there are massive construction sites all the way along. Getting there was not easy from Business Bay, a nasty walk along main roads and the other end leaves you high and dry if you walk towards the beach. You are on a massive road system, no taxis will stop and we had to walk a very long way and find a bus stop. Maybe one day it will mature and transport will be better organised but I was very disappointed, hot, tired and unimpressed.

We took the RTA water bus from the Marina over to the water canal, then connected with the water bus on the new canal. Excited to see the latest developments along the canal in Jumeirah and round to Business bay - dubai just never stops evolving and the canal is a great way to experience it! Boats are safe and high quality if a little chilly with powerful AC (take a sweater!).. We got off at the new design city and had a great meal.. Taxi then to Dubai mall only 10 mins away... great trip. (Photos from the marina to canal water bus)

...when not passing the odd bit of construction going on. This is a great walk from Business Bay to the Jumeirah area - I would guess it is 5-6Km long but off course it joins Dubai Creek so you could walk much further. You can cross on a couple of impressive footbridges if you fancy walking on the other side for a bit. There are shady areas and seats along the walk where you can sit and chill out for a while - at various points you can see the usual interesting buildings in the distance.

Dubai Water Canal is a great spot for a stroll or a gentle boat cruise. In Business Bay, the canal is lined with skyscrapers whilst the buildings become lower rise towards jumeirah and the sea. The views back to the skyline are sensational. There is a waterfall on either side of the sheikh zayed road bridge, near the Hilton hotel, which parts to allow boats through. The water is generally a lovely color and there are impressive pedestrian bridges crossing the water at various points. Bikes are welcome in various parts. Just a lovely place to get away from the cars and enjoy a different side to Dubai.
