Palm Jumeirah

One of the most recognisable symbols of the emirate of Dubai, Palm Jumeirah is the largest man-made island to be found anywhere in the world.

Emerging from the clear blue waters of the Arabian Gulf, the Palm gains its name from the design that gives the appearance of a giant palm tree when viewed from above.

Billed as the ‘Eighth Wonder of the World’ during its creation, the Palm has developed into a tourist destination that is not only one of the best in Dubai, but also one that is renowned all over the world.

Alongside residential properties, the Palm is home to some of Dubai’s most impressive hotels, offering the opportunity to relax in luxury whilst marveling at some of the most astonishing views that are available anywhere in the Emirate.

If exclusivity is what you are looking for, then you’ve certainly come to the right place.

When to visit

Dubai enjoys impressive weather at all points of the year, with temperatures in winter still reaching the mid-20s. In the height of summer, don’t be shocked if it passes the 40°c mark. Rain is possible during the winter months but you could probably consider yourself unlucky if it hits during your trip, with a couple of days a month being affected by precipitation.
