Jumeirah is a coastal residential area in Dubai. It is an expensive area with large houses built in a variety of architectural styles. The area is popular with expatriates working in the emirate and it is familiar to many tourists visiting Dubai.
Arabs living in Jumeirah were pearl divers and traders , but in more recent times Jumeirah was the principal area for western people.

This area is also frequented by luxury cars. Jumeirah also has a mosque, the Jumeirah Mosque, which is open to non-Muslims.
