Visiting Dubai and not noticing The Palm Islands would be a sin. The Palm Islands is an ambitious project envisioned by Nakheel Properties who are also the lead takers in the creation of the ‘World Islands’. Built on the coasts of the Dubai Emirates these man made artificial islands have been constructed by Belgian and Dutch dredging and marine contractors Jan de Nul and Van Oord. A series of three islands; namely Palm Jumeirah, Palm Jebel Ali and Palm Deira complete the ‘The Palm Islands Resort’ Project. A self announced Eight Wonder of the World, Palm Deira is the largest of the trio and is situated right besides the next wonder ‘World Islands’.
The primary reason for constructing The Palm Islands was to utilize and increase the flourishing tourism in Dubai by providing tourists world class hotels, entertainment centers, Dubai spas and health centers, marinas, water parks, residential villas, shopping malls, cinema multiplexes, diving sites and all the necessary amenities that go with it. Along with an imaginative shape of a palm tree is attached an extra hundred of miles of Dubai beaches which will be a major attraction for beach lovers and leisure travelers.
All the three islands are shaped in the appearance of a date palm tree that consists of a trunk, a crown with fronds, and crescent islands that acts as a breakwater. The assembly of these islands has been done using the technique of dredging sand from the ocean floor. Using an advanced global positioning system known as D-GPS, the sand is sprayed into the ocean through a process known as rainbowing. It is called so because of the curve that is created while spraying sand. The breakwater of the Palm Islands Jumeirah consists of seven million tons of rock where each one has been specifically placed by a crane and assigned a GPS co-ordinate.
The construction of Palm Jumeirah began in June 2001 and was final by October 2007. Today the island houses themed boutique hotels, restaurant & bars, attractions such as AquaVenture, The Lost Chambers and Dolphin Bay, shopping malls, shoreline apartments, beachfront hotels and three types of villas which include: Signature Villas, Garden Homes and Canal Cove Town Homes . The Island is connected to the main land by the Palm Jumeirah Monorail which was inaugurated on May 9, 2009.
The Palm Jebel Ali whose construction work has began in October 2002 will offer 70 kilometers of virgin beaches, six marinas, luxury hotels and entertainment attractions such as SeaWorld, Aquatica, Busch Gardens and Discovery Cove.
Work on the Palm Deira has started in October 2004 and since the island is large, the master plan has been divided into various parts such as Deira Island Front, Deira Island Mamzar, Deira Island Island North, South & Central, Palm Crown, Fronds & Crescent and the Deira Island Trunk.
Except for the Palm Island Jumeirah, real estate development on the remaining islands is still unfinished.
