Palm Islands, Dubai, UAE



Palm Islands, Dubai, UAE




The Palm Islands (otherwise known as the Atlantis) are an artificial archipelago in Dubai. Following the shape of a palm tree, the construction of the island started in 2001 and is planned to take 10-15 years to complete. After the completion, the new territory will add 320 miles (520 kilometers) of beaches to the city of Dubai.

The outer edge of the archipelago is actually a 10.5 miles (17 kilometers) long rock breakwater, made of over 7 million tons of rock. Creating the inner arc-shaped islands requires a process known as rainbowing, when the sand is sprayed by some dredging ships. The Palm Jumeirah, the archipelago’s smallest island, represents the tree trunk with 16 fonds. In the first phase of the development, 4,000 villas and apartments will be created on Palm Jumeirah. Furthermore, 32 hotels will be constructed on the island, which will eventually feature 78 kilometers of beaches. The project includes two other palm islands, Palm Deira and Palm Jebel Ali, considerably larger than the initial island.
