Palm Jumeirah

Shaped like a palm tree, the Palm Jumeirah is an artificial island off the coast of Dubai. It measures 3 miles long by 3 miles wide and consists of a trunk with 17 fronds (leaves), surrounded by a huge, circular crescent.

The Palm Jumeirah was the first of 3 Palm Islands planned by developers Nakheel. However, the 2008 financial crisis resulted in development of the Palm Deira and Palm Jebel Ali being put on hold.

The Trunk – Shoreline Apartments and the Golden Mile

The trunk is connected to the Al Sufouh area of Dubai by a 6-lane bridge and monorail.

The Golden Mile runs the length of western side of the trunk. It consists of 10 buildings with over 800 apartments. To its east are the Shoreline Apartments, comprising 2 rows of apartment buildings (10 in each row).

The Fronds – Villas

The fronds of the Palm Jumeirah are residential areas. All villas sold off-plan. The keys to the first homes were handed over in 2007.

The Crescent – Hotels

The crescent is home to most of the hotels on the Palm Jumeirah and also acts as a breakwater. It is connected to the trunk by a tunnel.

Attractions

Atlantis offers a number of attractions for both guests and non-residents. Aquaventure is a large water park with a number of exciting slides and rides while Dolphin Bay offers visitors the chance to swim and interact with dolphins.
