Take time to explore an icon on Dubai’s map
Dubai is globally recognized for its world firsts, and The Palm Jumeirah is an impressive example.
Viewed from above, the manmade island resembles a stylized 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, the One and 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 – a series of seven restaurants built on a pier that stretches out over the water.
Some of these restaurant options include Japanese-Peruvian fusion at Aji and fresh seafood with an Arabic twist at Ibn Al Bahr. Both of them offer beautiful views of the Arabian Gulf, Dubai’s city skyline and the majestic Burj Al Arab.
