Umi Hotaru (Japan)


Tokyo Bay Aqua-Line is one of the express-ways which connect Kawasaki, Kanagawa and Kisarazu, Chiba. It is the crossing bay highway made by the underwater tunnel and the bridge. The Aqua-Tunnel is 9.6 km and starts in Kawasaki. At the connection of the tunnel and the bridge, there is a huge artificial island called Umi Hotaru. 

 Spiral Island (Mexico)

If you can't afford to buy your own tropical island paradise, why not build your own? That is exactly what Richie Sowa did back in 1998, using over a quarter-million plastic bottles. His Spiral Island, destroyed years later by a hurricane, sported a two-story house, solar oven, self-composting toilet and multiple beaches. Better yet, he has started building another one! What's his ultimate goal? He wants to make the island bigger and bigger and finally float out to sea, traveling the world from the comfort of his own private paradise. (Link)

 Mexcaltitan (Mexico)


Mexcaltitán is a small man-made island-city off the coast in the Mexican state of Nayarit. Legend has it that it was the Aztlan of the Aztecs, their home city and birthplace from which they set out on their pilgrimage in 1091 that led them to the founding of Tenochtitlan.

This island is now being promoted as a tourist attraction and has been designated a "Pueblo Magico" by the federal government. It is accessible by boat from La Batanza, which is the docking area located some 40 kilometers from Santiago, Ixcuintla.

 The World Islands (UAE)



The World Islands project is a group of about 300 man-made islands, an artificial archipelago constructed in the shape of a map of the world located about 6 km off the coast of Dubai, UAE, covering an area of about 55 sq km. The master developer is Nakheel Properties, a subsidiary of the Dubai Government owned Dubai World conglomerate

No Man's Land Fort (Britain)

The Victorian-era sea fort was originally built to fend off attacks by the French navy, but is now a luxury hotel with 21 rooms, two helipads and a heated indoor swimming pool. It was put up for sale in 2007 but the company collapsed, leading to some drama with its former owner Harmesh Pooni, who barricaded himself inside in 2008. It still has not been sold.

Orsos Island (a $6 Million Island)

The oval-shaped "Orsos Island" has been designed to combine the mobility of a yacht with the comfort of a house. It offers six bedrooms, spread over three floors and 1,000 square meters, and nearly four tennis courts -- a worthy luxury living space.

The price tag for all of this is certainly more than you'd expect to pay for a mainland mansion but, at $6.5 million, it falls well below the average cost of the gigayachts and Caribbean islands currently favored by the fabulously wealthy.

Real Madrid Island (UAE)

The resort, which has also been described as a theme park for the soccer obsessed, will include two high-rise hotels, luxury villas, a 10,000-seat ocean-side football stadium, a marina, and a hi-tech museum devoted to the history of the Team. Real Madrid have announced that the 430,000 square meter project was designed by J+H BOIFFILS and will be constructed in partnership with the UAE government. They hope to open by 2015.


The Palm Islands are an artificial archipelago (islands) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), off the coast in the Persian Gulf. Major commercial and residential infrastructure will be constructed by Nakheel Properties, a property developer in the UAE. The Belgian and Dutch dredging and marine contractors Jan De Nul and Van Oord, some of the world's leading specialists in land reclamation, were hired to complete construction. The islands are the Palm Jumeirah, the Palm Jebel Ali and the Palm Deira.

Khazar Islands (Azerbaijan)


 Avesta, the company responsible for the islands' development, is constructing the city to house 1 million residents, contain 150 schools, 50 hospitals and daycare centers, numerous parks, shopping malls, cultural centers, university campuses, a Formula 1 quality racetrack, and the Azerbaijan Tower (expected to be the tallest in the world).[2][3][5] The $2 billion tower is to be the centerpiece of the Khazar Islands, a $100 billion city

Burj Al Arab

Burj Al Arab stands on an artificial island 280 m (920 ft) from Jumeirah beach and is connected to the mainland by a private curving bridge. The shape of the structure is designed to mimic the sail of a ship. Sometimes referred to as "the world's only 7-Star hotel", its star rating is disputed. The beachfront area where Burj Al Arab and Jumeirah Beach Hotel are located was previously called Chicago Beach.[7] The hotel is located on an island of reclaimed land 280 meters offshore of the beach of the former Chicago Beach Hotel
