Burj Al Arab Webcam, the Jumeirah beach and the Persian Gulf

Aisa, United Arab Emirates, Dubai

Location Information:


The Burj Al Arab (Arabic: "Tower of the Arabs", also known as "Arab Sail") is a hotel located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates and is the only 7 star hotel. At 321 m (1,053 ft), it is the second tallest building in the world that is used exclusively as a hotel. The Burj Al Arab stands on an artificial island 280 m (920 ft) out from Jumeirah beach, and is connected to the mainland by a private curving bridge. It is an iconic structure to mimic the sail of a ship.

The beachfront area where the Burj Al Arab and Jumeirah Beach Hotel are located was previously called Chicago Beach. The hotel is located on an island of reclaimed land offshore of the beach of the former Chicago Beach Hotel. The locale's name had its origins in the Chicago Bridge & Iron Company which at one time welded giant floating oil storage tankers on the site

The old name persisted after the old Hotel was demolished in 1997 since Dubai Chicago Beach Hotel as the Public Project Name for the construction phase of the Burj Al Arab Hotel until Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum announced the new name[4]. Some still refer to the hotel as the Burj Al Arab at Chicago Beach
