Palm Fountain at The Pointe recently entered the Guinness World Records as the world’s largest fountain. This latest addition to Dubai’s awe-inspiring collection of attractions was launched on 22 October 2020. Here’s what you need to know about it.
ABOUT PALM FOUNTAIN AT THE POINTE
Located at The Pointe in Palm Jumeirah, the Palm Fountain spans over an area of 14,000 sq.ft of water. The fountain’s highest water shooters stand 105m tall. There are also 3,000 LEDs to create a magical show of dancing colourful lights and water. The entire performance of the fountain is enhanced with a revved-up audio system powered by 86 speakers.
This multicoloured fountain on Palm Jumeirah has been named “Palm” Fountain as an ode to Dubai’s resilience. The fountain is divided into two parts that create a mirror image on the east and west promenades of The Pointe.
THE WORLD’S LARGEST FOUNTAIN
Previously, the Dubai Fountain at Dubai Mall had the distinction of being the largest fountain in the world. This successful attempt at breaking the record on its launch has conferred this title onto the Palm Fountain Dubai, making Dubai Fountain slide to the second spot.
The Guinness World Records’ Senior Marketing Manager for the MENA region, Shaddy Gaad was reported saying,
“This fountain is an example of another milestone in Dubai’s architectural achievements and we are excited to declare it Officially Amazing™.”

Dubai is home to several amazing landmarks and attractions. One of them is the Burj Khalifa – the tallest building in the world.
However, Dubai’s ambition to be the number one doesn’t end here, the soon-to-be-completed Creek Tower Dubai is expected to replace the Burj as the tallest building in the world.
