  • by

Do you want to see one of Dubai’s most breathtaking views of the city from The View at the Palm? Find out everything you need to be aware of this amazing view before you go!

The View from The Palm is a fantastic location to take in the most stunning views of Palm Jumeirah which is a man-made island with the shape of the palm tree from a birds-eye view.

Palm Jumeirah took close to six years to construct and the artificial island has now become home to highly luxurious residential areas and luxurious hotels, top-quality eateries, shopping centers and amazing attraction.

Although most travelers are likely to include Palm Jumeirah on their Dubai itinerary, few are aware how to take in the amazing form of the island isn’t simply by going there rather, it is to go above it. This is exactly what you’ll do when you visit The View at the Palm.

The hotel is situated on level 52. it has amazing 360-degree panoramas of Persian Gulf, the island and the city, as you sit seven feet (240 metres) over the earth. This is one of the top views in Dubai. It is definitely one of the most beautiful views of Dubai!

In the past couple of years living in Dubai I’ve been to many places and views. I really enjoyed this site and would recommend it even in the event that you’ve already visited Burj Khalifa Observatory and Sky Views Dubai. But if you have only two or three days to spend in Dubai I’d suggest skipping this one because you won’t be able to complete everything!

The View from The Palm Opening Hours

View at the Palm is open from Monday to Thursday. View at the Palm opens Monday through Thursday, between 9 AM and 10 PM and Friday through Sunday, between 9 AM and 12 AM. The last entry time is one hour prior to closing time.

How To Reach The View at the Palm, Dubai

The easiest way to get there is via taxi. I typically make use of the Careem app to make calls to taxis throughout Dubai.

If you prefer to reach Nakheel Mall by public transportation then you’ll have to arrive at Palm Gateway, and then use the monorail to Nakheel Mall station.

You could also use Metro’s red line from Al Khail Metro Station or Dubai Internet City Metro station and then use a taxi or tram until Palm Gateway where you’ll take the monorail. You can check Dubai’s monorail’s timings here.

In all honesty. I usually use public transportation the majority times in Dubai however this is among instances when I’d rather take a taxi, as it’s a great way to save much time and stress.

When you are in the mall, walk to the top of the building and follow the signs to The View at the Palm.

The View at the Palm only operates on timed entry tickets which is why I suggest purchasing tickets online prior to going. It is possible to purchase The View at the Palm tickets at the gate however you may need to wait for a bit if choose to do this (and there are no skip-the-line or fast-track advantages!)

After you’ve received your ticket, be sure to arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled time slot to ensure you do not lose the time slot you have booked.

The View from The Palm Observatory Admission Ticket allows you to pick whether you would like to visit during non-prime or prime hours which means you can pick between views of sunset or less crowds (and lower entry costs!) When you book. If you opt for when you book. Special Sunrise ticket, it’s cheaper (but you’ll need to get up earlier! ).

To experience something more extravagant you can opt for breakfast or drinks Admission ticket that grants an access into the lounge for VIP guests and a delicious breakfast and coffee or two of the home beverages of your choice that you can enjoy as you enjoy the view.

The Palm Dubai is situated seven feet (240 metres) over the entire island and directly facing it its observation deck provides an ideal place to enjoy the aerial views of Palm Dubai, the city’s most famous artificial island.

As one of the top viewing decks available in Dubai The observation deck located at Palm Tower is a must. Palm Tower also features an outdoor terrace with uninterrupted panoramic views over Palm Jumeirah, the Arabian Gulf and the stunning Dubai Skyline.

Apart from taking advantage out of the deck, and taking a trip to The View Cafe to grab refreshments, visitors can also visit The View Exhibition in which they will take a tour through the history of Palm Jumeirah and its construction through floor maps and tunnels for aquariums.
