Palm Jumeirah, Dubai Overview

Palm Jumeirah, Dubai's magnificent artificial archipelago, is the epitome of beauty created by land reclamation, extending into the Persian Gulf. The archipelago resembles a palm tree with a circle when you take an overhead view of it. It was one of the first major tourism projects in the UAE and currently houses some of Dubai’s top tourist destinations like Atlantis, the Palm, Aquaventure Waterpark and the Lost Chambers Aquarium.

The principle sectors of Palm Jumeirah have been named Trunk, spine, fronds, and crescent. The entrance to Palm Jumeirah is the broad trunk which connects the mainland by a bridge. Another bridge connects the trunk to the spine. The crescent is the breakwater and is connected to the spine by a vehicular tunnel. Palm Jumeirah is flanked by apartments, retails, villas,royal hotels and resorts, mainly on the trunk and the crescent. The offshore development was intended to be the first of three similarly shaped developments, the other being Palm Jebel Ali and Palm Deira. By the beginning of the second decade of the 21st century, Palm Jumeirah was housed by at least a population of 10,000. The most picturesque zone of Palm Jumeirah are the long fronds and you can catch sight of it's real beauty with an aerial view from the helicopter or aeroplane.
