From waterparks to sky-high infinity pools, Top Spots Dubai has rounded up the top seven things for tourists to do on The Palm Jumeirah, known as the eighth wonder of the world.
1. The View at The Palm
The View at The Palm, located on level 52 of The Palm Tower, is one of the latest additions to Dubai’s landmarks. At 240m high, this observation deck offers guests some of Dubai’s most impressive views with 360-degree panoramas that span Palm Jumeirah, the sea and the Dubai skyline. Tourists can refuel at The View’s café.
The View has direct access to the Nakheel Mall shopping mall which features several restaurants, retail options and entertainment.
2. Aura Skypool, Palm Tower, Palm Jumeirah
Aura Skypool is 200m above ground level making it the world’s highest suspended infinity pool. Aura Skypool is the perfect backdrop for Insta selfies with its 360-degree views that include Dubai Marina, Palm Jumeirah, JBR, Ain Dubai, Burj Al Arab, Burj Khalifa and the sea. Guests can dine from a poolside menu of pan-Asian bites.
3. Palm West Beach
Palm West Beach is a paradise for beach lovers with several beach clubs perched along the Palm Jumeirah’s trunk overlooking Dubai Marina, JBR and Ain Dubai. Our favourites include February 30, Lucky Fish, and San (part of Nakheel’s new multi-beach venue concept, The Club). There’s a beach club here for every mood from chilled out family-friendly settings like Koko Bay to party-centric venues like Surf Club. Every venue enjoys spectacular sunset views and Palm West Beach is one of the few dog-friendly spaces in the city.
