The Mediterranean inspired Festival Marina encompasses 74 permanent berths with state-of-the-art facilities to accommodate 15 to 35 meter yachts. The custom-designed marina features five-star concierge services, extra wide pontoons and WiFi internet access. In keeping with its international appeal, Festival Marina is the only facility in the UAE with quay wall mooring as is found in the waterside towns of Europe. This feature allows visiting yachts to moor directly at the quayside so passengers can go ashore and spend the day at Dubai Festival City.
Overlooking Festival Marina, Festival Waterfront Centre is a major attraction for the yachting circuit. The retail resort is home to over 600 shops including 25 anchor stores and 100 restaurants and cafés, a 12 screen multiplex cinema and a variety of entertainment venues. The waterfront promenade links Festival Marina to the world renowned InterContinental and Crowne Plaza Hotels and Event Centre all with prime waterfront views over Festival Marina, the Creek and greater Dubai.
