man made structure that has been excellently designed and there are more similar ones coming up. A major part of this is residential and cannot be driven into. can drive around and upto the front facing the sea. From a helicopter ride the view and strucure can be really appreciated.

Its a lovely area with nice buildings and classy hotels but its so big you don't know you are walking or driving on a palm shaped island. Videos of sky dives in dubai show people floating above the palm and this looks amazing but on the ground its just another nice area.

Driving on the palm seems like it would be a lot cooler than it was. I expected to see more of the palm. It was still worth going. There is a beautiful view of the city and Burj Al Arab from the drive. There are lots of places to stop and take pictures.

Access to Palm Island Jumeirah is easy, right off of Sheikh Zayed Road. Apartments, villas, hotels line the "trunk" on right and left as you travel to the "top", where Hotel Atlantis is. There are laybys to stop and take photos. It is not easy to tell the shape of the "tree" when you are right there!

If your into architecture & or seen this on TV, it does not compare until you have seen it with your own eyes! It is truly enormous for one & secondly amazing to see what can be done with changing landscapes or vision of building property along the shoreline

Private beach was truly man made! Sand was a bit rough and sea had lots of broken shells so beach shoes are a good idea

We took a taxi over to Palm Jumeirah. We soon found that there wasn't that much to do other than look out the window going past various places you weren't allowed into. We stopped at the Atlantis, walked about for half an hour, took some photos of this amazing building, then jumped back in a taxi. It seemed like one... More

One of the most popular attractions in Dubai because its an architectural marvel in itself & and landmark of Dubai. By road its fun to drive through the palm & see buildings constructed on man made land and then approach the Atlantis hotel. Near the hotel is a good sea view for pictures. They also have a monorail for a... More
