As one of the most iconic destinations in the world, the Palm Jumeirah has an awful lot to live up to. Luckily this is a challenge it has never had a problem rising to and it remains one of the most sought-after residential locations in the city. Perfectly navigating the balance between a haven for the super-rich and creating a family-friendly atmosphere, Palm living offers an unrivalled opportunity to embody the best of the Dubai lifestyle. Not only can you find your dream home, but you can enjoy instant access to some of the best tourism, leisure, retail and entertainment facilities on offer in the city. It is even only a short boat ride from The World Islands!
As the world’s largest man-made island, this majestic creation added an additional 78km of waterfront property to the Dubai coastline. As you would expect, this also included the construction of some of the most spectacular homes and properties in the world. Whether you are looking for a chic apartment (SOHO PALM) or a signature villa with 4, 5, 6 or even 8 bedrooms and direct beach access, you will find it here on the Palm Jumeirah, and they all come with magnificent views and the envy of all your friends. This is the ideal location for those looking for the height of luxury living, superb amenities and proximity to some of the most adored hotels and restaurants in the world.

You will never be able to claim boredom if you live on the Palm Jumeirah. Whilst one could easily get lost in staring out to sea or taking in the incredible views, there are also endless amounts of activities to keep everyone happy, no matter their preferences. Take the kids to Aqua Adventure waterpark and watch them whizz under sharks; or even to the Lost Chambers Aquarium and learn more about the creatures of the deep blue sea. Get fit with a paddleboard around the trunks of the palm tree or pump up the adrenaline with a 90 minute speedboat tour. Browse the city from above with an unforgettable Helicopter Tour or spend the day relaxing at a chic beach club (there are sooo many to choose from). Not to mention all the day spa options, parks and gardens, sky diving and restaurants available, you will be literally spoilt for choice.
Long term residents will remember the day of being confined to little corner shops and the odd Milk and Honey trip, but no longer. Thanks to a resurgence of popularity, there are now hundreds of shops available for Palm residents, enough even that they need not leave the archipelago for want of anything. From brand new The Pointe to the Golden Mile Galleria there are endless choices from high fashion to every day essentials. The upcoming Nakheel Mall is a 4.5 million sq. ft. retail, dining and entertainment destination that will include a fine dining roof plaza offering panoramic views of Palm Jumeirah, Arabian Gulf and the Dubai skyline
There are so many places to spend time with family and friends on the Palm Jumeirah, almost all of which offer unrivalled views of the Gulf, the Marina and the Burj Al Arab. From the dazzling aray of choices offered at Club Vista Mare (always packed on the weekends) to the opposing Sun& and Barrel 12 (different cuisines but similarly relaxed vibes) as well as the new venues in The Pointe, there is something for every taste bud; and that isn’t even including the hundreds of delicious venues in all of the hotels! Our top pick has to be an evening at Il Faro, a gorgeous little Italian nestled on the edge of the Palm that will make you feel like you have been transported to a Mediterranean holiday destination – the perfect restorative escape.
