Dubai Palm Islands - World's Biggest Artificial Islands

Today I read an article about the 3 gigantic palm tree shaped Dubai islands which are built on the coast of Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). After that curious to know more about it, I did a little Google search and found these awesome Dubai Palm Islands pictures.

Each of the Dubai islands (Palm Jumeirah, Palm Jebel Ali, and Palm Deira) are being built in the shape of a date palm tree and consist of a trunk, a crown with fronds, and are surrounded by a crescent island that acts as a breakwater. The biggest island of it, the Palm Deira island, when completed will be the world's largest artificial island. They've also been named one of 'The Eighth Wonder of the World'.

Deira Palm Island - Dubai

"The Palm Deira island will cover 14 kilometers (8.7 miles) in length and 8.5 kilometers (5.3 miles) in width and have an area of 80 square kilometers (861 million square feet). It will consist of residential property, marinas, shopping malls, sports facilities, and clubs. The residential area will be located on the fronds and will contain 8,000 two-storey town houses in three distinct styles - Premier Villas, Grand Villas and Vista Town Homes." - TEN Dubai Palm Islands

From an architectural and engineering perspective these Dubai islands are wonders. I love these Palm Dubai Islands for there amazing engineering and architecture feats. Maybe also as real estates and property development the Dubai islands can be successful and recover the billions of dollars spent on them and become a assert to Dubai. That aside, I am a skeptic when it comes to these Arab sheiks sand castle paradises. Even with a little bit of smart thinking the money they spend on vain mega projects like these can put to better use. But that's altogether another story.
