The World, a collection of 300 private man-made islands in Dubai shaped into the form of the world, is a unique development initiative by Nakheel development company. The only way to commute to these islands is through either marine or air transport. Situated 4 km off the coast of Jumeirah near Palm Jumeirah, these islands are divided into four parts namely: Estate homes, private homes, dream resorts and community islands. Currently, only Lebanon islands are functional.

3. Palm Jebel Ali

Palm Jebel Ali

One of the three human-made islands in Dubai, Palm Jebel Ali was proposed to be most significant of the three when completed. Its construction work started in 2002 and was expected to house more than 250,000 people. The island would have accommodated six marinas, a waterpark named 'sea village' and boardwalks with inscriptions of poems written by Sheikh Mohammed on it.

As of now, only Palm Jumeirah has been completed and is in a functional state. Palm Jebel Ali is an abandoned island at the moment. The construction work of Jebel Ali was put to a halt because of the financial and economic crash in 2008 in Dubai.

Now that we've covered the various manmade islands in Dubai, which one will you be heading to.
