Palm Jumeirah Community Guide

Palm Jumeirah is the world’s biggest man-made island. It is a world-famous landmark located on the Arabian Sea’s shore in the vibrant city of Dubai. A massive archipelago shaped like a palm tree, with fourteen fronds lined with beach bungalows and villas. The spinal ‘trunk’ is home to apartment complexes, stores, hotels, marinas, spas, and even its own monorail.

It covered 560 hectares and was divided into three main parts;

  • The Rectangle,
  • The trunk and
  • Fronds.

On the summit of the Palm stands the famed luxury hotel resort Atlantis The Palm.

The twenty Shoreline Apartments buildings on the east side of the Trunk have 2,500 luxury flats of varied sizes, while the Village Centre at the end of the Trunk has another thousand apartments. Then there are the villas and residences built on the fronds themselves, which number in the thousands and are continually being built.
