The Palm Jumeirah is an artificial archipelago in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates, created using land reclamation by the Developer Nakheel. The Palm extends into the Persian Gulf and is part of a larger series of developments called the Palm Islands, including Palm Jebel Ali and Palm Deira, which, when completed, will together increase Dubai’s shoreline by a total of 520 kilometres (320 mi). It has an estimated population of 10,500 as of 2016. It is located on the Jumeirah coastal area of the emirate of Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates. The construction was done by two Dutch (joint venture) specialist companies, Van Oord and Boskalis. The same companies also created the The World. The recently opened destinations The Pointe, Club Vista Mare and Nakheel Mall have provided another dimension to The Palm Jumeirah.
