Discover The Dubai palm islands

The Palm Islands are an artificial archipelago located off the coast of the UAE in the Persian Gulf. Each island will be in the shape of a palm tree, topped with a crescent, and will have a number of residential, leisure and entertainment centers. Only one of the three has thus far been constructed. This is the Palm Jumeirah, which consists of a tree trunk, a crown with 17 fronds, and a surrounding crescent island that forms an 11 kilometer-long breakwater. The island itself is 5 kilometers by 5 kilometers. On these islands, you will find hotels, holiday resorts (for the first time in the Emirati city), commercial centres, luxury villas and apartments, and a number of artificial beaches.
