Visiting the Palm Islands

Hi there,

Are the Palm Islands open to Tourists? If yes what is the best time to go and how?

Cheers,

There is only one island developed. They have a website. Do not know if they are working, how they are or anything else.

If you mean the Palm as opposed to the World Island, yes you can visit. But you don't have any sense of being on a Palm shaped island. It's best to see the island from above either from a scenic flight (fantastic and highly recommended) or from some place with a view eg Marriott Harbour hotel and suites bar.

Maybe you visit the Atlantis at the Palm Jumeira, and do the monorail - and get some sense of the Palm island. There is no other island that is fully developed yet.

As Kali says you don't know you're on the Palm so there really isn't any reason to go there unless you want to visit the Atlantis.
