Dubai has undertaken several extraordinary land reclamation efforts, with multiple city-sized projects built, under construction or planned on man-made islands in the Arabian Gulf. The Palm, the most established of these massively ambitious projects, is a group of palm-frond-shaped islands, and features a monorail, a road tunnel, and an extensive waterpark resort.
