The fact of palm island ☺ #dubai #UAE #palmisland

A post shared by Lingofacts (@lingofacts) on

Palm Islands are three artificial islands, Palm Jumeirah, Deira Island and Palm Jebel Ali, on the coast of Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Creation of the islands started in 2001. As of November 2014, only Palm Jumeirah has been completed. This island takes the form of a palm tree, topped by a crescent. After completion, Palm Jebel Ali will take a similar shape. Like Palm Jumeirah, each island will be host to a large number of residential, leisure and entertainment centers and will add a total of 520 kilometers of non-public beaches to the city of Dubai.

The Palm Island cannot be technically termed as an Island, as it is connected to the mainland via a bridge. This bridge is 1.4 kilometers long, 40 meters wide and 25 meters below sea level.
