The stunning island of Palm Jumeirah is an attraction in its own category – completely man-made and fabulous, the island redefined tourism in Dubai with its launch in 2007 when it became the world’s largest artificial island.
Aiming to extend city life out into the waters of the Arabian Gulf, the Palm Jumeirah looks like a stylised palm tree from above, and was originally billed as the Eighth Wonder of the World. Today, the Palm boasts plenty of luxurious hotels and resorts, as well as a long beachline perfect for soaking up the sun. Plus, you can sail around Palm Jumeirah in a yacht or speedboat offered by one of the many private touring companies, or why not hop aboard the Palm Monorail that runs to the Atlantis resort for some pretty spectacular views of the area, too.
Whatever it is you fancy - a relaxing romantic getaway in the sun or an action-packed holiday for the whole family - the Palm Jumeirah is the ideal destination.
