Palm Jumeirah in Dubai is the world’s largest man-made island and features sea-view apartments, beach-front villas, and opulent high-rises that attract the world’s wealthiest. The project took 6 years and cost an incredible $12 million. Developers used sand from the seabeds below and rocks from the mountains to construct the base and the land. They also constructed breakwaters to keep the island and its residents safe from storms and typhoons. Now that the project is completed, business on the island is booming, with celebrities like David Beckham and Kim Kardashian calling it a favorite vacation spot.
You can actually spot the Palm all the way from space-- its unique shape is hard to miss. Residents pay millions of dollars for luxury villas on the island-- each with their own private beach-- and use their vacation there to enjoy the Golden Mile Galleria, The Pointe by Nakheel which features one of the world’s biggest fountains, and the incredible Boardwalk which takes you around the crescent and offers you a spectacular look at the complicated island. It’s also home to the Lost Chambers Aquarium at the famed Atlantis Hotel, where a stay in their Royal Bridge Suite will cost at least $25,000 per night. The island has been such a success that there are even plans to make two more, Palm Jebel Ali and Palm Deira, also known as Deira Islands. Check out our video for all the details on building-- and living on-- one of the world’s most unique islands.
