Dubai Creek

Dubai Creek is a 14 km long (and 24 km total) saltwater creek located between Al Shindagha on the north and Jumeirah Beach on the south. It creates a natural port that has been used for transportation. Historical resources mention that the creek used to reach Al Ain once and was named River Zara by the ancient Greeks. In the 1950s, comprehensive construction was done around the creek, and bridges, banks, residential areas, and hotels were built. Today, after the last extension work, it has been called the Dubai Water Canal, and it has become one of the most significant sites in the country.
