Magnificent Beach Houses in Dubai Photos

15 February 2009 70 Comments

Magnificent Beach Houses in Dubai Photos | Dubai is one of the most lavish and fastest growing cities in the world. The reason being is because of their amazing architecture that you can find all over the city. Almost every week I am asked by a handful of people from different countries what they should see, where they should go to dine and when they should fly. To be honest, that depends on how much you want to spend. The amount you will pay for a plane ticket will greatly depend on where you are coming from. If you are traveling  from Australia or New Zealand and purchasing airline tickets from a website, the cost is going to be fairly cheap compared to someone coming from the United States. Also, if you choose to fly during the holidays, expect to pay more as well. As for what to see and do in Dubai,  last time I posted two articles about my top 5 secret places to see and also my top 5 places of interests in this beautiful country. Now, I want to show you the photos my friend took of the magnificent beach houses that can be found in the city of Palm Jumeirah which is just 30 minutes away from Dubai. Please note that every house has their own beach and swimming pool! I would recommend seeing this part of the United Arab Emirates if you have a few hours to spare while on your next vacation. Thanks to my friend Mariz for sending me these awesome pictures.

    It looks so sterile. Not paradise at all, paradise has to be created by nature!

  • Tomi said:

    This is how those who built the houses live:

  • onda said:

    ugly indeed

  • Jeremy Buff said:

    Nice photos, but there much better photos out there..

  • nick said:

    finally, mass produced beach houses in an ugly tan color!

  • Jackson B said:

    I’m thinking this would be yet another of the world’s abandoned wrecks in a few years time and would make a great movie set.

  • MattyDienhoff said:

    Tasteless extravagance. Yuck.

  • brandon said:

    Those are so ugly. I’m not hating, I’m not jealous. Those houses are hideous.

  • honpah said:

    Cool. Lets see the other 99.999% of the country.. you know where they’re living 50 years behind the richest countries.

  • Eric Tan said:

    Wait a sec, do they allow women to wear swimwear in Dubai? Do they allow women to go out of their rooms at all? Sorry, don’t know who these houses are intended for.

  • Carlos said:

    It’s horrible. We have much better paradises here in Brazil. Houses much bigger and more beautiful.

  • David said:

    car centric, soulless, and completely ignorant of any concept of ecological footprint. Any educated person with taste wouldn’t be caught dead living in one of these mcmansions.

  • Nev said:

    Wait till the sealevel rises…. ( global warming anyone ) and we`ll see how valuable those properties will be. Literally built on sand…..

  • erick said:

    just like driving around in a stretch hummer screams “i’m an ignorant asshole”, living in one of these things screams “i’m an ignorant asshole with no taste.”

  • James said:

    Ah, the American dollar hard at work. Hope everyone likes the photos because this is what your gas dollars are buying.

  • Michael Glatz said:

    Glad to see my fuel bill went to fulfilling someones dreams.

  • Midwestjack said:

    Amusing that nobody actually lives there.

    Most homes are purchased, oh yes, but no one actually visits.

    The neighborhood looks that deserted 24/7. Sad but true.

  • magna said:

    a swimming pool right next to the most amazing water…thats idiotic, better invest that money on a dry sauna….

  • Mustafa said:

    min = $5 000,000
    Max = $12 000,000

  • julian ramirez said:

    I don’t know about you guys, but damn i want one.

  • nmo said:

    you would have to pay me to live there.

  • dude said:

    wow, the water is very clean!

  • dikembe said:


  • seo blog said:

    Why do they need a swimming pool when they are 5 seconds walk away from the sea? Looks surreal I must admit.

  • Theori said:

    Being rich is played out. Pffft

  • CrystalTruth said:

    LOL… An idiot with a kindergarten education could see this coming hundreds of kilometers away. Even WITH decent infrastructure (which they don’t have YET), the bacteria levels in the man made lagoons will be off the charts. This is the result of absolute greed. Welcome to your new, deluxe sewer… Now drink up.

  • Peter Wilson said:

    The place looks a little creepy. All those rich people living so close together? Will that be paradise or hell?

  • KarlKrist said:

    Beautiful homes, pretty beach…

    But not a soul to be seen.

    Who wants a beach where women aren’t allowed be be out in a bikini?!?!?

  • squirlybob said:

    paradise agreed

  • barry said:

    And not a solar panel in sight. Nice.

  • Anonymous said:

    Who seriously thinks this is paradise? The palm is sinking into the sea and no one is buying any of this property, because Dubai has been exposed for the morally and financially banrupt idiocracy that it is.

  • none said:

    Funny how they live on the ocean, but they all have ppools

  • surf1punk said:

    The foolish man built his house upon the sand.

  • Patrick C said:

    Absolutely no character to them at all – they look virtually identical to each other.

  • johncox said:

    just another housing estate, hell is in the proximity of the neighbours. would rather have no beach, no pool, no neighbours, unless, I can pick them, all of them..

  • NoName said:

    Talk about living on top of each other.. you pay an arm and a leg for that? What a waste of money, ugly too. If I was to spend the type of money involved in buying one of these houses, I would rather build and design my own house some place else.. with some garden.

  • Ebenezer Sissledock said:

    If you can look out across the water and see some jerk on the shore a hundred metres away then it sort of misses the point rite?

    Still, I guess there are worse places to live in the world. like Ireland.

  • bennie said:

    Wonder which one is Dick Cheney’s?

  • Gert said:

    amazing photos, beautiful place!

  • TruthOfItAll said:

    I hear they have trouble with raw sewage now. The toilets run straight into the water there. Place smells like duty everywhere and there is toilet paper washed up on the beaches. Paradise? I would say not even close. Plus, there ain’t no waves over there to surf on. Can’t be paradise!

  • Christian Kid said:

    these are awesome. i wonder if ones close to the mosque cost more

    Money, but to anyone with taste in the West, it looks like a residential version of the concrete jungle. No trees, no space (houses built right to boundaries of land), no privacy, no character. Just tasteless mass production of expensive homes like doll houses off a conveyor belt. They can have it.

  • ROFLMAO!! said:

    This is RIDICULOUS. One half-assed tsunami and these McMansions are soggy TOAST.

    Who wants to live so close to other people for ridiculous amounts of money.

    This thing is going to need a BAILOUT.

    Not to mention HOTTER women who aren’t ashamed of their bodies.

    All these celebs like Tiger Woods are getting PAID to promote this horribleness.

    Where are all the environmentalists on this one?

    I can’t possibly imagine that this monstrosity has no impact on the environment at all.

    Come to think of it: Which one’s Air Gore’s house?

  • ROFLMAO!! said:

    I still can’t get over it.. “Magnificient Dubai beach houses”.. ROFLMAO!!!

    This makes South Florida look like it has CHARACTER.


  • ROFLMAO!! said:

    They could shoot “Weekend at Bernies” Part 3 there. Looks like Bernie would be the liveliest thing in the place.

  • Gavin said:

    I’ve been living in Dubai for eight years and The Palm Jumeirah is just down the road. By the way, it’s actually not sinking at all. However, while many of these may be lovely homes, they’re totally spoilt by being so crammed in that you might hear your neighbour burp. Not my idea of fun, especially when there are seriously beautiful alternative suburban choices so close by.

  • arena84 (author) said:

    thanks for the info.. i never been there yet. but will do one day :)

  • Fahima said:

    What a dream, I don’t know how they built this houses, I can’t believe, I wish I had house like this, it is sooooooooooooooooo beautiful houses.

  • arena84 (author) said:

  • chica said:

    It’s a beautiful sight, but it may sink so i wouldn’t go there, and seriously a pool when you have the beach right in front of you!

  • Dubai Property Portal said:

  • ed hardy said:

    good job

  • dubai property said:

    Good information! Another idea is to contact local property management agencies to see if they have a new opening coming up in your price range.

  • Mubajje Muhammad said:

    People in our country Uganda are very poor yet they have land which is better than the reclaimed sea.
    It makes me think that the rich in Dubai are not mindful of the fellow muslims who do not have even mosques to pray in; yet for them they are wasting so many billion dollars on un occupied settlements.

    Please visit, and invest Uganda and witness the diverse nature ranging from its people (above 56 tribes hence 56 languages), variety of animal species, low and extreme temperatures, rain fall through out the year etc.

  • Best Travel Destinations said:

    Whatever, I really appreciate their great creativity, and how they managed to create “paradise” from simply nothing. As for me, Dubai is really a unique travel destination and I wish to find myslef there one day! :)

  • hazel land said:

    Beautiful home! I don’t know how they built these houses. Keep up the great work guys!

    I have been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours Magnificent Beach Houses in Dubai Photos | Akademi Fantasia Travel. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
