Palm Islands – Just off the coast of Dubai are the Palm Islands – a series of manmade islands completed in 2014 that, from an aerial view, form the unmistakable shape of a palm tree. The islands were built entirely from rocks and sand, and they add 320 miles of beachfront land to the Dubai coastline.
