The Five Islands

The Island A is also designed as the hub of maritime activities, providing top-notch facilities for boating and waterfront living. It is also the first island of the Mega Project to go under development. So far, it is the only island with functional infrastructure and connectivity. 

Several projects are already underway on this island. You will see several resorts, beaches, and recreational facilities on Island A. You will see the beaches and resorts flocked with visitors looking to get away from the busy beaches elsewhere in Dubai.

Island C

Known as the Oasis Island, this part of Dubai Islands will be built like a retreat. It’s is the 18-hole golf course.

Connectivity of Dubai Islands to Key Locations

Dubai islands are built quite close to the heart of the city. The islands are already connected to the mainland by Deira Island Bridge. The bridge connects Dubai Islands to Al Khaleej Street and Abu Baker Al Siddique Street. In merely a few minutes you can reach the Deira Corniche or the Waterfront market.

The below list gives you an estimate of the connectivity:

10 mins to Gold Souq Metro Station

16 mins to Deira Corniche

21 mins to Al Mamzar Beach Park

20 mins to Dubai International Airport

22 mins to Dubai Frame

24 mins to World Trade Centre

24 mins to Downtown Dubai

34 mins to Creek Harbour

The connectivity will get even better with the Shindagha Corridor Project. The corridor will connect Dubai Islands to Bur Dubai. It will reduce the travel time to locations like World Trade Centre, Downtown, Business Bay, and so on.

All the Dubai Island projects will benefit from the easy inflow thanks to the Shindagha Corridor. It will connect the islands with the intersection of Al Wuheida street and Cairo street by a bridge ramp.
