Dubai islands: Palm Island

Dubai islands presents Palm Island
The amazing Palm Island and several other ambitious projects are underlining Dubai’s growing status as a unique international and cosmopolitan city of leisure and business.

Over the past 15 years Dubai has become one of the fastest growing city in the whole world. It was in the mid 90s when Crown Prince of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum set out his vision to make Dubai one of the world’s biggest tourist atractions.

The beaches and blue waters of the Arabian Sea are among the most attractive features of Dubai; however they are also limited to just 70 kilometers of shoreline. It is through this, that the idea of Palm Island was inspired.

The palm tree, known also as the ‘bride of the orchard’, is one of Dubai’s most important symbols. With its spread-out branches, it also constitutes an ideal shape to maximize beachfront space.
