Guide

This is the biggest land reclamation project on earth, a giant archipelago designed in the shape of a palm tree whose fourteen fronds are fringed with beach-side houses and villas. The spinal ‘trunk’ has apartment buildings, shops, hotels, marinas, spas and its very own monorail.

To build the Palm some five million boulders were loaded onto giant barges and sunk to form an artificial island surrounded by an eleven kilometre breakwater rising two metres out of the sea.

No concrete, no steel, just rocks and sand were used to create this engineering masterpiece. It has been said that if the rocks had been used to build a two metre high wall, that wall could wrap around the world twice over.

It took just two years to create the island and surrounding Crescent breakwater, and another two years to build the four and half thousand houses and apartments, and the hotels and shops that populate it. On the ground you wouldn’t know that ten years ago none of this existed; it looks and feels like a natural island.

The twenty Shoreline Apartments buildings on the east side of the Trunk house two and a half thousand luxury apartments of varying sizes while at the end of the Trunk is the Village Centre with another thousand apartments. And then there are the villas and houses on the fronds themselves, an estimated two thousand and still counting, packed with miscellaneous celebs busy enjoying the lifestyle.


Transport & Access

Commute times by car

From Palm Jumeirah it takes roughly 24 minutes to drive to Dubai Mall, 20 minutes to Burj Al Arab and 19 minutes to The Walk JBR.*

Airport proximity

Dubai International Airport (DXB) is roughly 46 minutes' drive and the new Al Maktoum International Airport is roughly 42 minutes' drive.*

Road access

All parts of the Palm are well served by roads, and the spinal highway connects to Sheik Zayed Road, the main north-south highway running through Dubai. Abu Dhabi is then about an hour’s drive and the airport about 50 minutes.

2017 was to have seen the start of a scheme to provide proper pedestrian connections between residential buildings on the Palm's trunk to local shops and restaurants. Pedestrian bridges on the 1.5 kilometre Palm Promenade will link the area’s 30 apartment buildings with Al Ittihad Park, Palm West Beach and the Golden Mile-Galleria.

The aim is twofold; to create an urban community area that is connected to a growing number of retail, dining and entertainment facilities on The Palm, and to relieve the pressure on the main trunk road, which is becoming busier as more hotels, shops and restaurants open in the area.

The speed of traffic on the trunk is currently impeded by pedestrian crossings, lights and speed bumps. By introducing pedestrian bridges traffic will be able to flow more freely.

Public transport

The Palm also has its own monorail running the length of the trunk. It connects with the new tram system serving Jumeirah Beach and Dubai Marina where it stops alongside the Dubai Metro. From there The Mall of the Emirates is a 15 minute ride, Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa 30 minutes, and the airport 55 minutes. At some future date the monorail will connect directly to the Dubai Metro at Dubai Internet City station.

For those wishing to travel in style there is a water taxi service that will pick you up from the Palm and take you anywhere on Dubai’s waterways.

* Drive times are calculated by Google Maps and assume fastest route in typical traffic conditions.

Amenities

The main attraction is the clear blue waters of the Arabian Gulf. Whether it’s sailing, diving, swimming, working out, sunbathing, shopping, eating, or simply having fun, you’ll find it catered for here. You can splash about in the 42-acre water park or set sail from one of four marinas. You can take a dive and check out the diversity of fish, coral, sponges, oysters and other marine life that have made the rocky Crescent reef their home. If you’re not the fishy type you can explore the shipwrecks and a couple of downed fighter planes compliments of the tourist board.

And if getting wet is not your bag you’ve got a fitness club, shops, cafes and restaurants to help you while away your time.

The Crescent stretches for 11km and is home to over twenty hotel resorts including the landmark Atlantis situated opposite the ‘top’ of the Trunk.

In November 2016 a new Boardwalk opened along the length of the Crescent. Built over the rocks that form the island’s breakwater, the six-metre wide Boardwalk is more than double the width of the original Crescent path. It is accessible from 14 points along the existing sidewalk and has not only transformed Palm Jumeirah’s Crescent into a place for cycling, jogging or walking but also a ‘vibrant destination’ for shopping and dining, with around 20 food trucks stationed along its length to cater for the hungry.
