Jumeirah Palm Island. Satellite image of the Jumeirah Palm Island resort, in the Persian Gulf off the coast of Dubai city. This artificial island, which was completed at the end of 2005, houses luxury hotels, apartments, shops and restaurants. Its 60 kilometres of beaches were created with over 100 million cubic metres of dredged sand and rock. The sand encircling the palm acts as a breakwater. Photographed in January 2006.
