One of the best things to do in Dubai is to visit Palm Jumeirah or better yet, stay there if possible! Amongst the most exclusive destinations in the UAE, it offers much to experience as well.
What is the Palm Jumeirah?
A modern wonder, the Palm Jumeirah is an artificial island in Dubai which has been constructed in the shape of a huge palm tree; it has 16 fronds as well as a crescent and trunk section home to diverse accommodation options as well as shops, restaurants, cafes and entertainment venues.
While there are upscale townhouses, apartments and residences for locals, tourists can also stay at the Palm Jumeirah! Hotels and resorts offer luxury accommodation right beside the shoreline along with dining, spa and leisure activities. The UAE’s only overwater villas can also be found here at Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort.
Fun Activities on Offer
Like most other island destinations, the Palm Jumeirah lets you enjoy lots of water sports in Dubai; depending on the resort you can try kneeboarding, water-skiing, stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking, banana boat rides, wakeboarding, fishing and more. Boat cruises are also available and provide dining and entertainment too.
Other Things to Do
There are plenty more things to do in Palm Jumeirah; you can shop, dine and be entertained at the Golden Mile Galleria or Nakheel Mall, enjoy relaxation or recreation at idyllic Al Ittihad Park or experience waterfront dining at Club Vista Mare. Art lovers can visit the ProArt Gallery, while there are beach clubs and restaurants for some nightlife too.
