“Fantastic creation of a palm tree shaped landfill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

The only man made structure visible from space, the palm islands are an engineering and visionary feat. A landfill consisting of a central palm with many palm branches coming off either side. A spectacular view form the plane (right side as I landed). There are hotels, apartments, restaurants, the Atlantis Hotel complex and more.

“Amazing Reclamation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

The route to Atlantis lined by luxurious apartments full of greenery makes wonder whether you are truly in a desert terrain. It looks more like Palm Beach Florida or something like that. simply amazing.

“Amazing drive through Jumeirah island.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

What amazed me the most about the place were the buildings;you can't but stare and admire the awesome architecture of the hotels there!
A stop at the Atlantis Hotel is a must!
The beautiful sea is another thing worth admiring in Jumeirah.
Of course, you can't actually see the Palm while driving through it..

“Worth Driving too”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

We had a rental car and though Dubai can certainly be challenging for an American to navigate (GPS really helps) the Palm Islands were worth driving too. There were no problems with being touristy and just driving around.
