The 11km Boardwalk at Palm Jumeirah, Dubai officially opened on Monday, 21 November, 2016. Ali Rashid Lootah, chairman of Nakheel inaugurated The Boardwalk.

The $40.84mn (AED150mn) Boardwalk was formed by building out over the rocks of the island’s protective breakwater to produce a six-metre wide promenade, according to Dubai Media Office.

Lootah said: “The Boardwalk is another shining example of how we use creative thinking and innovative engineering to bring more facilities and attractions to Palm Jumeirah.

“This unique destination is one of a series of new projects under way on the island as part of our ongoing commitment to further enhance this world-famous landmark.

“It’s already proving a popular spot for jogging, walking and sightseeing among both residents and tourists, with many more visitors expected as Dubai’s peak tourist season gets under way.”
