Palm Jumeirah is considered by many to be the 8th wonder of the world and offers a wide range of new and exciting projects. It is the largest man-made island on the planet and is developed into the shape of a palm, leading to the name Palm Jumeirah, also often simply called “the Palm”. This eye-catching landmark is the ultimate showcase of luxury and one of the most popular in Dubai. Here you can find anything your heart desires and more, as the Palm provides the ultimate when it comes to atmosphere, facilities, and stunning views.
Palm Jumeirah is located on a spot that, not long ago, was part of the Arabian Gulf. Having found its place on the Jumeirah coastal line, Sheikh Zayed Road can be reached in approximately 15 minutes. Neighbouring areas include Dubai Internet City, Knowledge Village, Dubai Marina and JLT. A unique feature of the Palm is that each villa on this island comes with private beach access.

There is a wide range of real estate projects on the market in the Palm. Ranging from studio apartments all the way to 7-bedroom apartments, every unit here is characterized by luxury. The area can be divided into 2 parts: the Trunk, where the apartments are located, and the Fronds, where the villas are situated. At the same time Atlantis the Palm, one of the most luxurious hotels in Dubai, is located on the peak of the palm, together with several other resorts. Apartments on the island come in the form of studios, 1-, 2-, 3-, 4- and even 5-bedroom units. Villas have a minimum of 2-bedrooms and go all the way up to 7-bedroom mansions.
The Palm is served by a monorail system that covers 5.4 kilometers (3.4 miles) which connects the Atlantis hotel, which is located the furthest from the mainland, to the Gateway Towers, which are located at the foot of the island. In the future, the monorail system may be extended to the nearest metro station on the Red Line. Practically every villa and apartment comes with designated parking space while guests can park their car on the streets. Overall, the traffic situation is not bad compared to other areas in Dubai. However, there is only one access road to the island which may cause a little congestion every now and then.

Due to the small territory of the island, there are few amenities compared to surrounding districts. However, everything you need, such as shopping outlets, supermarkets, and medical facilities are widely available. When you are looking for schools, the choice is rather limited but the surrounding neighborhoods make up for this.
The development of the island already started in 2004. So, many projects have already been finished and the units handed over. However, that does not mean that there aren’t any new developments on the Palm. At the moment there are several new off-plan projects available, both apartments and villas, and here are 5 of them.
