PALM ISLANDS (Dubai)

The Palm Islands in Dubai are the three biggest man-made island in the world. They are being built by Nakheel Properties, a property developer in the UAE, who hired the Dutch marine and dredging contractor Van Oord One world specialists in land reclamation. The islands are The Palm Jumeirah, The Palm Jebel Ali and The Palm Deira. Islands located off the coast of the UAE in the Persian Gulf, and will add 520 km beach into the city of Dubai.

The first two islands will comprise approximately 100 million cubic meters of rock and sand. Palm Deira will consist of around 1 billion of cubic meters of rock and sand. All materials will be excavated in the UAE. Between the three islands there will be more than 100 luxury hotels, villas and exclusive residential beach side apartments, marinas, water theme parks, restaurants, shopping malls, sports facilities and health spa. The creation of The Palm Jumeirah began in June 2001. Not long after, The Palm Jebel Ali was announced and reclamation begins. In 2004, The Palm Deira, which will be almost as large as the size as Paris, was published. Palm Jumeirah is currently open for development. Construction will be completed over the next 10-15 years.
