Travel to Palm Jumeirah with us

Sometimes referred to as the 'Eighth Wonder of the World’, Palm Jumeirah is one of the most popular areas within Dubai - and with good reason.

Man made, and holding the record for being the largest artificial island in the world, Palm Jumeirah opened back in 2007 to provide Dubai with additional room to expand and it has now become something of a destination in its own right.

As the name would suggest, the island is shaped like a huge palm tree, with a number of 'branches' fanning off the main 'trunk' that links Palm Jumeirah with the mainland - which can be accessed with ease through a monorail system.

On the Palm, you’ll find some of the most luxurious hotels that Dubai has to offer which include Atlantis The Palm, the Five Palm Jumeirah and One & Only Resort The Palm - all of which are 5* offerings.

Given that the Palm was constructed using sand, there are plenty of beaches on which to relax and take in stunning views over the Persian Gulf and also back across the dramatic Dubai skyline - particularly when the sun goes down and the bright lights of the city light up the sky.

Those beaches open up the possibility of taking part in a raft of water-based leisure activities whilst there is also plenty on land to keep visitors occupied - including one of the top water parks in the Middle East region.

Given how easily you can also use Palm Jumeirah as a base to explore other areas within Dubai, it’s the ideal option for anyone keen to see everything that the city has to offer.

Things To Do

Aquaventure

Even if you aren't staying at Atlantis The Palm, you can still pay a visit to Aquaventure - the huge waterpark that forms part of the resort. Situated right at the top of the Palm, Aquaventure is home to nearly 80 slides and attractions that are suitable for all ages, including the iconic 'Leap of Faith' , the six-person Aquaconda and Poseidon’s Revenge - a trapdoor slide where you’ll hit speeds of 60km/h. Splashers Lagoon & Cove is designed for smaller children whilst there is also a tidal river and even a zipwire that flies high above the water.

Swim with sharks

Based once again at Atlantis The Palm, the Lost Chambers Aquarium is home to more than 65,000 marine animals and one of the most exciting things to do is head into the water yourself on a shark safari. Those who are more experienced divers can even have a go at feeding them by hand. Snorkelling is also available whilst those who prefer to stay out of the water can simply take in the many and varied displays.

Skydive Dubai

The ultimate Palm Jumeirah experience but one that is only suited to those with a head for heights! Take in views of the Palm from 13,000 feet before a tandem skydive provides the most exhilarating way in which to return to earth afterwards.

Dolphin & Sea Lion Experiences

As well as the Lost Chambers Aquarium, Atlantis The Palm is also home to Dolphin Bay - which is a fantastic place to visit if you want to get up close to some of the most majestic mammals on the planet. As well as swimming with the bottlenose dolphins, you can learn more about the conservation work that is going in to protect them. At Sea Lion point you can enjoy similar experiences alongside the resident colony of sea lions.

Relax on the beach

So much sand was used to create Palm Jumeirah that you won’t be surprised to see there are plenty of beaches on which to relax - many of which are only available to people staying at the various hotels across the Palm. These private beaches are great way to avoid the crowds and relax in the sun.

Enjoy a refreshing spa

The 5* hotels across Palm Jumeirah have all the facilities you could hope for and a top quality spa is one of the top attractions. The Talise Ottoman Spa at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, the Guerlain Spa at One & Only The Palm and the Sofitel Spa at Dubai The Palm are three of the best.
