Dubai is globally recognised for its world firsts, and The Palm Jumeirah is an impressive example. Viewed from above, the manmade island resembles a stylised palm tree, which was built from reclaimed land mass and a series of artificial archipelagos.
Palm Jumeirah is home to some of Dubai's most luxurious resorts, including Atlantis The Palm, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, One&Only The Palm and many more. It is also packed with fantastic dining options worth visiting, such as Nobu and 101 Dining Lounge – even if you’re not staying at one of the many resorts.
The Palm is well developed with roads, tunnels and public transport. So you can easily access the various hotels, restaurants and attractions on the island. You can also hop aboard the Palm Monorail that runs to Atlantis that sits at the helm.
Sailing around Palm Jumeirah in a yacht or speedboat is also a popular option, with many private touring companies to choose from. Thrill-seekers can even skydive above the island for a truly unique experience.
For a laidback evening, check out Club Vista Mare. The row of restaurants is built on a pier that stretches out over the water. Restaurant options include al fresco bites and enticing plates at Breeze Beach Grill and fresh seafood with an Arabic twist at Ibn AlBahr. Both offer beautiful views of the Arabian Gulf, Dubai’s city skyline and the majestic Burj Al Arab Jumeirah.
