Palm Jumeirah is the world’s largest man-made island and is comprised of a two-kilometer-long trunk, a crown made up of 17 fronds and a surrounding crescent. Palm Jumeirah was launched in the year 2001, with reclamation starting in the same year. From the end of 2006, the island’s first residences, comprised of 4,000 luxury villas and apartments for sale, were handed over during a phased period.Since then, tourism, leisure and retail elements of the island have been developed making Palm Jumeirah a world-renowned residential and tourism destination. It is one of three planned islands called the Palm Islands (Palm Jumeirah, Palm Jebel Ali and Palm Deira) which would have extended into the Persian Gulf, increasing Dubai’s shoreline by a total of 520 kilometers (320 mi).
