Airports similair to Aéroport Nice Côte d'Azur & Reagan National Airport?

I've always thought these airports are pretty cool since they are big and important, yet cramped in a small space due to beeing seaside.

Are there any other big airports similair to these? Beeing close to the city, surrounded by roads/water, yet handle alot of people?

Looking at an aerial of Kingsford Smith. Still looks like there is enough land within the boundaries for growth.

DPS - Denpasar/Bali is pretty cramped, had to demolish more than quite a few houses for the new terminal, enclosed by sea in the west, water from a bay in the west, and city in the north and south. Plans for airport in North Bali exist. 17M
BOM - Mumbai sees city at all sides, no free land considering slums not to demolish these. At the west there is a sea 2km apart. 43M
IST - Istanbul-Atatürk is going to be replaced because of a lack of space. Surrounded mostly by city, at the south by sea as well. 60M, not sure if this number will still be as high next year.
MNL - Manila has been enclosed by urban space as well and like the other examples there are plans for replacement, nothing concrete though. West is sea (1km apart), east is a lake, north and south are urban. 36M.

MEX, middle of a city of 20+ million, plus a airport with 40,000,000 passengers per year.

If I am reading the first post correctly, the criteria is to be a major area airport which is close to a large body of water and in placed in a small land area.

Madeira Airport? Don't know if it handles enough people for your definition, though...

That airport is on the outskirts of the city.

An airport that might fit your criteria is Dubai.
