What are the best View at the Palm tours?

The View at the Palm presents guests with a wide variety of in-house tours — each dishing up a unique way to sit back and admire Dubai’s skyline.

Self-guided tour and View at the Palm experience

This is the no-frills version of an already amazingly thrilling experience — and one that allows you to admire the View at the Palm without breaking the bank. You can buy your tickets in advance, saving yourself even more money, or at the counter in the Nakheel Mall.

Either way, you’ll make your way up to a height of 240 meters, from where you’ll enjoy a mesmerizing panorama of Dubai and Palm Jumeirah.

View at the Palm tour with sundowners

There’s something magical about enjoying a well-crafted cocktail, hundreds of meters in the sky, while watching the sunset over a busy cosmopolis.

And when said cosmopolis is Dubai and the view includes Palm Jumeirah, the experience is truly out of this world. This tour is the perfect way to celebrate a special event, or even cap off a memorable stay in Dubai.

High tea and a View of the Palm tour

Take the already stylish tradition of enjoying an afternoon cup and add to it the glitz and glamour that only Dubai can provide — and the result is a high tea that’s elevated in every sense of the word. However, if you want to obtain the traditional time slot of 4 PM, you’ll have to book in advance as the tickets tend to sell out quickly.

Next-level View at the Palm VIP experience tour

This tour and VIP experience present the pinnacle outing that the Palm Towers have to offer. After enjoying unfettered access to the tower's luxurious rooms and suites, you’ll journey to the observation deck — where you’ll enjoy some refreshments, as well as an unforgettable view.

But then the fun really starts as you move to the VIP lounge, where you’ll, quite literally, get to enjoy the high life.

Are there any combined tickets or tours including the View at the Palm and other attractions?

  • The View at the Palm plus Dubai Aquarium combination: Take in the view from the top of the world and then descend into its watery depths with this Dubai Aquarium combination tour. As with most things in Dubai, the aquarium is beyond belief, boasting a 50-meter-long underwater tunnel and thousands of different species.
  • The Dubai Frame and View at the Palm combination tour: This combination tour is all about the view, as it combines cityscapes from Palm Towers with breathtaking scenes from the Dubai Frame. The latter is the largest frame on the planet and it perfectly frames old and new Dubai — creating a fitting narrative to accompany this city’s growth.
  • The View at the Palm plus Aquaventure Waterpark tickets: Given the fact that Palm Jumeirah rises from the waters of the Persian Gulf, it’s only fitting to combine it with a visit to the Aquaventure Waterpark. Spend the majority of your day exploring the thrilling rides and slides that Aquaventure has to offer — before settling down for a well-earned respite while admiring the View at the Palm.

What will you see inside?

A View at the Palm tour isn’t as much about what is inside as it is about what is on top. Standing at a height of 240 meters, you’ll enjoy breathtaking views of Dubai, something you could rightly expect to encounter throughout the city — but where this experience differs from something like the Burj Khalifa is the fact that you’ll be gazing down on Palm Jumeirah.

This man-made archipelago is a testament to the ingenuity and inventiveness of the people of Dubai, as it presents a message of defiance — the desert could not stop our city, and neither will the ocean.

What are the opening times?

The View at the Palm is accessible to the public every day of the week — from 10 AM until 8 PM, with the last admittance taking place at 7 PM. Time slots from 4 PM onward are considered premium times and cost more.

When is the best time to visit The View at the Palm?

The best time to visit The View at the Palm is between November and March, when the weather is cooler and visibility is often better. These months allow for comfortable outdoor viewing experiences and clearer panoramas of Dubai's skyline.

Morning visits offer softer light, ideal for photography, while evening visits present Dubai's iconic city lights. Avoid the weekends and holidays to sidestep peak crowds.
