Palm Jumeirah

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

The Basics

The Palm Jumeirah offers some of Dubai’s most opulent 5-star hotels—including Atlantis, The Palm—all of them rising from its Crescent breakwater or trunk. The island’s 17 fronds are home to 1,730 private villas. Visitors come to enjoy the hotels’ beaches and dining options, as well as attractions, such as Atlantis’ Aquaventure Water Park and Lost Chambers Aquarium. Also popular are shopping malls, such as The Pointe and Golden Mile Galleria.

Nearly all Dubai tours include photo ops outside the Atlantis, arriving via road or the island’s monorail system. Some hop-on hop-off bus routes, meanwhile, let you alight at the Atlantis to explore at leisure, while boat and Jet Ski tours afford fabulous views of the Palm and Atlantis from the sea. However, the best option to admire the palm-shaped island design is to take a helicopter or seaplane trip that flies over the island.

Enjoyable ride around the palm
Good morning trip to see some of Dubai’s highlights - great when the boat picks up speed. Note there are some seats which fit 3 and we ended up waiting a while in the sun as a woman had a strop about not sitting with her husband. It’s also super hot on the water so definitely apply sun cream before…

Luxury Yacht Cruising at Dubai Marina, Atlantis The Palm & Burj Al Arab
One hour tour and nice way to get an introduction to the city on the water. Yacht was older but great and served our purpose of being on the deck, listening to jams and enjoying the views with family. There were 8 of us. The crew was courteous and kept the refreshments coming to keep us cool in the heat. We did not see many of the landmarks I was hoping to see, but all in all it was great to be out!

Thanks for the great trip. The speedboat tour was as fast as it sounds, it was so much fun. We booked the tour at 6pm, which was a perfect time, because it wasn’t too hot (mid of September) and the lightning while driving back was awesome.

It was very hot going during the day. We were dropping sweat but I still enjoyed my experience. The tour guide and captain Ernest and David I believe their names are, were great! They took our pics at every stop we made. They gave us several bottles of much needed cold water lol

Things to Know Before You Go

  • The Palm Jumeirah is a must-see for first-time Dubai visitors, shoppers, families, and theme park lovers.

  • If time is short, take a half-day tour that covers Dubai’s highlights and an Atlantis photo stop.

  • If you can’t manage a flightseeing experience, the monorail is the next-best way to see the Palm’s fronds and palm shape.

  • Bring your hat and sunscreen; there’s little shade anywhere on the island.

How to Get There

The Palm extends into the Gulf from Dubai’s Al Sufouh area, midway between the Burj Al Arab and Dubai Marina. To visit, catch the monorail from the Gateway station on the trunk to Atlantis, The Palm on the Crescent breakwater. Alternatively, take a taxi to the island.

When to Get There

The Palm Monorail runs every 15 minutes, every day, from about 9am until 10pm. Check timetables before traveling, however. If you have a ticket for the Atlantis Aquaventure Water Park, aim to arrive early during the peak season (November-April) and on Friday and Saturday, to avoid the biggest crowds.

Visiting the Atlantis, The Palm

Though Atlantis’ main lobby is usually open to nonresidents, access may be restricted from time to time. Your best bet is to reserve a table at one of Atlantis’ on-site restaurants to ensure entry.
