I watched a documentary on the construction of that and it was unbelieveable. the beach constantly erodes and they have to add sand on a regular basis. The structure has also caused erosion on the mainland that would not have been caused had it not been constructed. One hell of an engineering accomplishment. Curious how long it will last though.

It is a series of islands that are shaped like the continents. For instance, one could purchase Australia.

The Palms has had major problems with water getting stagnent too.

A structure of that magnitude Has to play havoc on water currents!
Now in part we know why our gas prices are so high.
Wonder how many hurricanes they have roll through the area? I can't see there will be much left after one!
