Jumeirah Islands (Arabic: جزر الجميرا‎) is a housing development in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, developed by Nakheel Properties, one of Dubai's largest developers. Jumeirah Islands consists of small islands (called clusters), each comprising 16 villas. They all sit in an artificial lake. The lake is so large that the whole complex has a land to water ratio of 23:77[1]

The complex includes 50 islands (46 of which are the residential clusters), a restaurant, a supermarket, a Club House, a gym, and a leisure facility. Each of the 736 houses has its own swimming pool. The project was completed by the close of 2006. Nearby properties include the Jumeirah Lake Towers and Palm Jumeirah, both built by Nakheel.
