The world's largest Ferris wheel, has appeared off the coast of Dubai Marina, the countdown that ended today has begun. Garnde awaits the Ferris wheel and Bluewaters, the island that hosts it.

The connection to the mainland is served by a new road network, including a direct connection to Sheikh Zayed Road, pedestrian access from The Beach JBR and by sea operated by the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA).

Bluewaters Island is home to numerous courtyards, pedestrian spaces and scenic walkways above a lush green landscape. Central and Sunset Avenue separate the three areas of the island, while the North and South Promenades lead pedestrians to the beach and viewpoints over Dubai.

Bluewaters is located directly opposite JBR (Jumeirah Beach Residences), a 20-minute drive from City Walk, while Dubai International Airport is only 30 minutes away.

Ain Dubai, the largest Ferris wheel in the world

Bluewaters Island is also, and most importantly, home to Ain Dubai, the engineering marvel that serves as the island's hub for enjoying breathtaking and unparalleled views in the world. Ain Dubai is 250 meters tall, taller than the High Roller Las Vegas (167 meters) and the New York Wheel on Staten Island (190 meters). Ain Dubai carries up to 1,400 passengers at a time in its 48 double-glazed capsules, offering unforgettable 360-degree views of Dubai.

The center of the island: The Wharf

The Wharf, Bluewaters' trendy shopping district, sits against the backdrop of Ain Dubai. It has 132 stores and restaurants scattered along an avenue characterized by low buildings and walkways that crisscross the neighborhood. The trees and palms that surround it already create plays of light and excellent shaded areas to enjoy the view. Dining options at The Wharf range from fine waterside restaurants to the more extravagant – an eclectic mix of bars and bistros serving a range of international cuisines.

Central Avenue lines the waterfront of The Wharf, while North Walk and Wharf Avenue line the waterfront surrounding Ain Dubai Plaza beneath the Ferris Wheel. A 265 meter long pedestrian bridge, The Wharf Link, connects this area to The Beach on the Dubai coast. Bluewaters Wharf Station serves as a wharf for maritime freight.
