Visiting China? – Choose Your Private Island in China

Private Islands in China are mostly man-made. They are also known as China’s Fiery Cross Island. The U.S. estimates China has added 3,200 acres of land on seven features (which includes rocky outcrops and reefs) over the past three years.

Chinese engineers building islands follow a similar principle that engineers constructing the Palm Islands in Dubai followed.

China has specifically targeted shallower areas, sandbanks, and reefs—islands need a good base, the shallower the better; a place that won’t sink under a load of concrete. The islands China has built so far are located on a shallow continental shelf, with an average depth of around 650ft. To construct the base of the island, piles of sand is used on the seabed or reef, before placing the rocks on that. Finally, adding a thick layer of cement to the first two layers gives a proper shape to the island. This whole process of constructing is similar to the Fiery Cross Reef Island.

Chinese engineers building islands follow a similar principle that engineers constructing the Palm Islands in Dubai followed. This requires an enormous amount of sand, and China has mainly gathered it using dredgers that grind up the material on the seabed, turn it into fine sand, and then suck it it up through tubes.
