The World Islands are a collection of man-made private islands shaped into the continents of the world, located off the coast of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. It consists of 300 small, man-made, private islands divided into four categories – private homes, estate homes, dream resorts, and community islands.
Each island ranges from 250,000 to 900,000 square feet (23,226 to 83,613 square metres) in size, with 50 to 100 metres (164 to 328 feet) of water between each island. It will cover a total area of 9 kilometres (5.4 miles) in length and 6 kilometres (3.6 miles) in width, surrounded by an oval-shaped breakwater. The only means of transportation between the islands is by marine or air transport.
The World Islands are located 4 kilometres off the shore of Jumeirah, close to the Palm Jumeirah, between Burj Al Arab and Port Rashid at approximately 25 degrees 13 North and 55 degrees 10 East. Each island was sold to selected private developers and are expected to be priced between USD $7 M. – USD $1.8 B. Richard Branson purchased the island of Great Britain.
