Marina Mall

Dominating the centre of the Breakwater, the large Marina Mall, an attractive modern complex built around a series of tented courtyards and fountains, is one of the city’s two top shopping destinations, along with the glitzy Abu Dhabi Mall on the opposite side of town. The mall’s main attraction for non-shoppers is its views of the long string of glass-faced high-rises lining the Corniche Road. These are best appreciated from the soaring Burj al Marina tower, located at the back of the mall, which can be visited for the price of an expensive drink at the 41st-floor Colombiano coffee shop immediately below.
