Nakheel has announced that The View at The Palm, an observation deck that showcases a 360-degree view of Palm Jumeirah, has opened its doors to the public on April 7, 2021. Visitors can purchase their tickets and embark on an interactive journey towards the history of the island through multiple immersive touchpoints.
News of The View’s opening follow Nakheel’s recent announcement that The Palm Tower is now 95 per cent complete, with all components set to open by October this year.
With direct access from Nakheel Mall, level two of The Palm Tower will mark the entry point for visitors which houses a Starbucks Café, The View Exhibition, interactive aquarium tunnels and a gift shop. The View Exhibition, a tribute to the growth journey of the Palm, will encompass a timeline on the way in which this world-famous island was conceptualised and developed.
Visitors can also experience an immersive theatre which takes them through the ground-breaking history of the island. Towering at 240 metres over the Palm Jumeirah, Level 52 holds the observatory deck with spectacular views of the Arabian Gulf, Dubai skyline and the island itself.

As well as a world attraction, The View will uncover the evolutionary journey behind building one of the most splendid man-made islands in the world. As Nakheel continues to add innovative destinations to its ever-growing retail portfolio, we hope that these experiences will inspire wonder to visitors of all ages and backgrounds. We are delighted to welcome residents to experience Palm Jumeirah in a completely new way and we are confident that it will be memorable.”
