Facing the Arabian Gulf, Abu Dhabi is essentially broken into two parts; “on island” and “off island”.
For families, off-island housing is newer and larger and becoming increasingly popular thanks to nearby supermarkets, schools, nurseries and other facilities. Raha Beach is popular if you want to live in a waterfront front community, whilst Raha Gardens, Golf Gardens, Sas al Nakhl, Mangrove Village and Al Reef are all popular developments as well.
In-island areas include the water fronting corniche and the fast-developing Reem Island, where families from all nationalities enjoy proximity to downtown, while staying away from its traffic-heavy streets.
The great thing about moving to a new city like Abu Dhabi is that its full of families and related activities. With plenty of online and offline communities to join, making new friends and learning the ins and outs of Abu Dhabi is both easy and exciting.
Abu Dhabi is located just 1 hour away from Dubai and has a modern international airport that connects it with hundreds of cities around the world.
