Dubai is all set to build the largest marina in the Middle East and North Africa with 1,400 berths named Dubai Harbour. The “Dubai Harbour” will also feature a cruise ship port and a terminal that can accommodate 6,000 passengers at a time, a government statement said.
The marina will expand Dubai’s yacht capacity by around 50 per cent from its current 3,000 berths, the statement said.
The new project also will include a 135-metre lighthouse featuring a hotel and observation deck.
The project will be located off the upmarket Dubai Marina neighbourhood and next to the man-made Palm Island.
Home to Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower, Dubai has evolved into a regional business hub and an attractive tourism destination.
