Floating Island of Jounieh


After almost 30 years including 15 years of research, the project of Dr. Abdullah Daou is expected to see the light by summer 2015. The floating island of Jounieh is the first of its kind in the whole world and it took many years to create such project especially in light of all the technical obstacles from an engineering aspect. The island will be like a floating resort in the sea with the ability to move from one place to another when needed, with a surface of around 3300 sqm and will have hotel rooms, nightclubs, restaurants, … The concept is pretty amazing and hopefully the island will become a reality next summer.
