The Palm Islands are an artificial archipelago in Dubai, United Arab Emirates on which major commercial and residential infrastructures will be constructed. They are being constructed by Nakheel Properties, a property developer in the United Arab Emirates, who hired Belgian and Dutch dredging and marine contractor Jan De Nul and Van Oord, some of the world's specialists in land reclamation. The islands are the Palm Jumeirah, the Palm Jebel Ali and the Palm Deira. Each settlement will be in the shape of a palm tree, topped with a crescent, and will have a large number of residential, leisure and entertainment centers. The Palm Islands are located off the coast of The United Arab Emirates in the Persian Gulf and will add 520 kilometres of beaches to the city of Dubai. The first two islands will comprise approximately 100 million cubic meters of rock and sand. Palm Deira will be composed of approximately 1 billion cubic meters of rock and sand. All materials will be quarried in the UAE. Among the three islands there will be over 100 luxury hotels, exclusive residential beach side villas and apartments, marinas, water theme parks, restaurants, shopping malls, sports facilities and health spas. The creation of the Palm Jumeirah began in June 2001. Shortly after, the Palm Jebel Ali was announced and reclamation work began. The Palm Deira, which is planned to have a surface area of 46.35 square kilometres, was announced for development in October 2004. Construction was originally planned to take 10–15 years, but that was before the impact of the global credit crunch hit Dubai.

Yes, not enough sense to understand that creating an artificial island system will disrupt tidal and wave flow to the naturally formed areas of beach on the continental portion beaches.

World Wildlife Fund made an announcement in 2006, declaring "UAE's human pressure on global ecosystems (its ecological footprint) to be the highest in the world. The country is currently five times [in 2007] more unsustainable than any other country" (Samarai 2007). It would be impossible to say that the effects of the islands have not been felt by the surrounding environment since the start of their construction, and will not continue to be felt into the future.

Utter waste of time and money. Oh, and these pics are not of any of the Palm Islands. This is a series of pictures of 'The World' which was a hugely expensive flop.
