LEBANON ISLAND @ The World Islands, Dubai

 

 

Lebanon Island @ The World Islands, Dubai

 

Before:  Dubai = desert 

Now:     Dubai = desert + islands

 

Soon island hopping will no longer be a dream in Dubai.

Consider Lebanon Island the first frontier in The World Island.  Since 2010 we’ve been longing to see and set our feet on this man-made islands which is also part of this booming emirate.

Me and my 3 bodyguards (kidding aside) thank you guys!  We are 4 Concierges were given a chance to experience this paradise.  Concierge missions are always to explore whats-new, must-visits and must-do.

Now, bear with my mini-wanderlust story entitled The Island journey:

Sojourning The Island starts at looking for the docking area where the boat could take your there.

For those who haven’t to Jumeirah Fishing Harbour (JFH), searching for it is a challenged, just consider it part of your adventure :⊃

 

I don’t drive so this is the best suggestion I can give, please be there 15minutes before time:

  • From Jumeirah Park – after the 3rd bus stop, on your left side, go through that small street (managed yourself how will you get on the left side)
  • From Mercato Mall – after the mall turn right between 2nd and 3rd bus stop, slowly browse the area which named Jumeirah Fishing Harbour.

This is the left side as soon as you enter JFH, while Delma Marine is on your right.

Leaving Jumeirah Fishing Harbour

 

 

 

En route you will pass by many islet under development. If you search thru google map, these islets comprises the whole of The World Islands Dubai. The Lebanon island is in the middle of those.

Upon reaching the beach we were greeted by serene blowing air… inviting … relaxing….

Whispering… lay your back on white sunbed, feel the touch of the sun kissing the white warm sand… just retire,

hit it Seals & Crofts, to the chorus –

“summer breeze… makes me feel fine… blowing through the jasmine in my mind…

summer breeze… makes me feel fine… blowing through the jasmine in my minnnnd…”

 

How about sunbathing overlooking Dubai buildings?

I told my OB Gyne friend who lives in Delma Island, Abu Dhabi (which I really fell in love with). “I’m still inloved with your sperm shaped island, but this new island is teasing me, hayyyyyy…”

We were welcomed with refreshments and had tour of the place, briefed by their promos like brunch every Friday… hey that’s something new to brag – Have you had brunch in an island?  Well, I had.

No matter how you say it – my get away, my hiding place or escape to reality.

You’ll be swollen with pride to post “been there” in your social media timeline, thus it’ll spreads jealousy to your fam & friendz.  Therefore invite them and visit again :⊃

(By the way remove views for public if this is your secret place, or it wont be your hiding place anymore hehe)

 

Who needs freedom from work, shout … FREEEEDOM!

To The Island – Let’s Go!!!
