Palm Jumeirah

Palm Jumeirah

Palm Jumeirah by Nakheel, is one of the world's largest man-made islands and a world-famous symbol of Dubai's energy, growth and ambition.

Launched in 2001, in line with the vision of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the iconic and award-winning Palm Jumeirah was more ambitious than anything that had previously been undertaken, anywhere in the world. Stretching 5 kms into the Arabian Gulf in the shape of a date palm - the national plant of the UAE, Palm Jumeirah is a vibrant and ever-growing residential, tourism, and leisure destination with three main areas - the trunk, crescent, and fronds.
