The Palm Jumeirah

The Palm Jumeirah
The Palm Jumeirah is a man-made island being developed off the shores of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, covering an area of 7 million square meters and extending 6.5 kilometres into the Arabian Gulf. The island will be surrounded by a 12 kilometre long crescent shaped breakwater built with over 7 million tons of rock and sand and extend five kilometres (three miles) into the sea south of Dubai city. It will be able to withstand a 4 metre high wave. More than 90 million cubic metres of sand has been reclaimed from the seabed using the latest dredging techniques.
When complete the Palm development will include 17 huge fronds and contribute to the city's position as a premier global tourist destination. The island will eventually support 50 luxury hotels, 2,500 exclusive residential beachside villas, 2,400 shoreline apartments, two marinas, water theme parks, restaurants, shopping malls, sports facilities, health spas and cinemas.
