The Palm Deira is the biggest of the three Palm Islands situated on the Deira inshore arena of the emirate of Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates. The unequalled artificial palm-shaped island will consist of a stem, a crown with 41 leaves, and an encompassing crescent island which will be surrounded by a sea wall.

The Deira Palm Island was not originally planned to be formulated, but on October 2004, the proclamation of its expansion was published. The Palm Deira will continue for 14 kilometres lengthwise and 8.5 kilometres breadth-wise. It will have an area of 80 square kilometres. It will comprise of residences, marinas, shopping malls, sports facilities, and clubs. The inhabited area will be situated on the fronds and will be full of 8000 two-floor town houses in three distinct styles. They are Premier Villas, Grand Villas and Vista Town Homes. It is anticipated to be completed by 2015.

This island is 8 times bigger than the Palm Jumeirah, and 5 times bigger than the Palm Jebel Ali. In the beginning, the design was planned for a 14km by 8.5km island with 41 fronds. Owing to a considerable alteration in the ocean depth of the Persian Gulf, the island was restyled in May 2007. The design then turned into a 12.5km by 7.5km island with 18 bigger fronds.

By beginning of October 2007, 20% of the island's reclamation was accomplished, with a total of 200 million cubic metres of sand used by now. Then in early April 2008, Nakheel declared that more than one-fourth of the total area of the Palm Deira had been reclaimed. This totaled to 300 million cubic metres of sand. As the island is so big, it is being evolved in various phases.

The first one is the formation of Deira Island. This bit of the Palm will be beside the Deira Corniche, sandwiched between the entrance to Dubai Creek and Al Hamriya Port. Deira Island will be "the gateway to The Palm Deira"and aid to regenerate the ripening area of Deira. By the beginning of April 2008, 80% of Deira Island Front's reclamation was finished.
