It is one of the several artificial island developments in Dubai, mainly composed of 320 million cubic meters of sand that have been used, 347 million tons of rock that have been used to construct the 27 km breakwater which is approximately 4 meters above sea level.

It can can only be reached via boat, seaplane or helicopter. The cost of islands ranged between $2  0 - $50 million.
