Dubai's La Mer beachfront development is the ideal place to while away a day. Situated in Jumeirah 1, the 1.24 million square metres of sprawling timber walkways and beachside promenades are packed with restaurants, bars and ice-cream parlours. It opened in October 2017 and included 130 shops, cafés and restaurants.
We took a walk through in December to see what was on offer.
