Information About Palm Jebel Ali
Palm Jebel Ali is the second of three man-made islands in the shape of a palm tree. It is located on the Jebel Ali coastal area of the emirate of Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Set to become one of the world's leading tourist destinations, Palm Jebel Ali will offer an unparalleled getaway for residents and visitors alike.
Palm Jebel Ali is a landmark commercial, residential and tourism development for Dubai, which, along with the Waterfront project, will transform an area of empty desert and sea into a bustling international community, with an estimated population of 1.7 million people by 2020. Located outside of the existing city near the Dubai / Abu Dhabi border, Palm Jebel Ali will eventually support a population of more than 250, 000 people and serve as an entertainment destination for both adults and children..
Catering to both residents and tourists, the developments on Palm Jebel Ali range from luxury villa residences along the fronds - including the popular Signature and Garden Villas first seen on Palm Jumeirah, as well as a brand new villa design specially created for Palm Jebel Ali, with apartments and townhouses on the spine, trunk and crescents - to landmark hotels, tourism destinations, and marinas. A unique feature of Palm Jebel Ali is more than 500 water homes, raised on platforms above the waters of the Gulf, with their own optional private leisure boat berths and private community beaches.
When completed, Palm Jebel Ali will be the centre of busy cosmopolitan community with world-class commercial, residential and tourism facilities. At the heart of its offering are over 70 kilometers of pristine beaches, with six marinas, luxury hotels, a mixture of housing types, and a full range of services for its communities. Through a unique partnership with Busch Entertainment Corporation, the island will feature an incredible entertainment attraction known as The Worlds of Discovery, which includes SeaWorld, Aquatica, Busch Gardens and Discovery Cove.
Initial reclamation is now 100 percent complete, and construction of the artificial reef surrounding the development was finished in December 2006. Marine life in and around Palm Jebel Ali is flourishing.
