The Palm Jumeirah (also referred to by its Arabic name of Nakhlat Jumeira) is synonymous with Dubai’s extravagance, and the rental prices on the man-made island match its reputation. In a recent survey, local estate agents said The Palm is one of the most sought-after areas for families due to its wide range of facilities and the fact it’s away from the hustle and bustle.
There is a monorail system linking areas on The Palm and an extension linking the monorail to the metro is being constructed and should be functioning by the end of 2014.

The Palm has its own yacht marina, and the calm waters make it excellent for hiring watersports gear from the area’s hotels – Stand-Up Paddleboarding (SUP) is becoming more and more popular here.
Despite the Palm’s obviously engineered shape when viewed from above, once you’ve got your feet planted on it, it doesn’t appear quite so symmetrical.
