Jebel Ali Tourism

Jebel Ali is located on the south-west coast of Dubai and has a historical significance as it is the world's ninth busiest port, the largest man-made harbour, and the biggest and by far the busiest port in the Middle-East. The port Jebel Ali was constructed in the late 1970s to help take the pressure off the facilities of Port Rashid. It quickly became the most visited spot by US Navy ships outside of US. 

Jebel Ali is well-connected due to its virtue of being a significant town, by Al Maktoum International Airport and to the rest of Dubai by the UAE Exchange, Danube (formerly Jebel Ali Industrial), and Energy stations on the Dubai Metro. The Jebel Ali Free Zone, created in 1985, is an industrial area that is located around the port. It is popular among business circles as the international companies that set up their offices here can enjoy tax privileges for 50 years. There are several resorts, camping spots and even luxurious hotels waiting to grab your attention.
