Watersport activities, private cabanas, walkways, and a mangrove forest await residents of Dubai, as part of a massive expansion plan to expand the Emirate's coastline by 400pc before 2040.
The details were made public yesterday, after UAE Prime Minister and Vice-President and Dubai Ruler Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum made an announcement on Thursday that Dubai's coastline would increase to 105km, up from its current 21km.
