Palm Jumeirah Island: Beach Fun, Nightlife & Foodie Adventures

Flying into Dubai, you'll see a giant island that's shaped like a palm tree with golden beaches lining every branch. It's Palm Jumeirah Island, the largest artificial island on the planet - and an iconic attraction that's synonymous with Dubai's outsized engineering ambition. With 80 kilometers of coastline, the modern marvel is a high-end playground that's studded with posh restaurants, luxury villas, and sultry beach clubs. Snack from food trucks along the boardwalk, which boasts fantastic views of the coastline and the sail-shaped Burj Al Arab hotel. Play all day at a water park or find a ritzy spa and slip into the infinity pool. At night, Palm Jumeirah Island heats up as revelers crowd into the clubs and DJ beats fire up the dance floor.  From kid-friendly fun to late-night parties - this dramatic archipelago is definitely at the top of the Dubai bucket list.
