The spectacular man-made islands that make up Palm Jumeirah extend city life out into the aquamarine waters of the Arabian Gulf. Seen from above, it looks like a palm tree consisting of a trunk with 17 fronds, encircled by a crescent-shaped island. It was the first offshore development of its kind, and was originally billed as the Eighth Wonder of the World.
The Palm’s most famous landmark is the colossal Atlantis The Palm resort, with its water park, private beach, and Dolphin Bay
. Enjoy the view from the sea in a yacht or hop aboard the Palm Monorail that runs to the Atlantis resort on the Palm’s outer crescent.
