💡 The Palm Jumeirah is an artificial archipelago in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates, created using land reclamation, which extends into the Persian Gulf.
It is part of a more extensive series of developments called the Palm Islands, including Palm Jebel Ali and Palm Deira, which, when completed, will together increase Dubai’s shoreline by a total of 520 kilometers.
It has an estimated population of 10,500 as of 2016. The Palm Jumeirah is located in the Jumeirah coastal area of the emirate of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.
The construction was done as a joint venture by two Dutch specialist companies, Van Oord and Boskalis.
The same companies also created The World.
The recently opened destinations The Pointe, Club Vista Mare, and Nakheel Mall are the latest additions to Palm Jumeirah.
Palm Jumeirah Transportation:
The Palm Jumeirah Monorail is a 5.4-kilometer-long monorail connecting the Atlantis Hotel with the Gateway Towers at the island’s foot.
The monorail connects The Palm Jumeirah Dubai to the mainland, with a planned further extension to the Red Line of the Dubai Metro.
The line began operating on 30 April 2009. It is the first monorail in the Middle East.
