About Al Khawaneej, Dubai Overview

If you wish to escape city life, Al Khawaneej is the best neighbourhood for you! Al Khawaneej is a fast-growing suburb, situated behind the diverse and culturally rich areas of International City, Mirdif and more. It begins on the west side of Emirates Road and runs parallel to the Sharjah-Dubai border. It consists mainly of desert terrain and is majorly populated by the local Emiratis. The locality is quite rural in parts and is home to several private farms. Some of these private farms even allow visitors!

Leading real estate developer, Meraas, has a large number of ongoing projects all over the Emirates. Over the last few years, the market has seen a number of fresh additions. Al Khawaneej comes under one of Meraas' projects in Dubai, throwing a spotlight on this periphery neighbourhood. It is also the location of Al Khawaneej Walk and The Last Exit, both exciting places that entice young crowds. The area has multiple properties available for sale or rent.

Al Khawaneej, a fantastic suburb, is divided into Al Khawaneej 1 and Al Khawaneej 2. It includes many individual farms and private villas. Rich locals who choose to live in this neighbourhood own the agrarian companies that have been running successfully here for centuries. Even though the locality isn’t quite as developed as the main hubs of Dubai, it is ideal if one is looking for a bit of peace. In addition, it has some of the best properties for investments and rents. The locality contributes greatly to the agricultural sector of the UAE.

Ilyas Gazi
Ideal Location With Convenient Parking

Al Khawaneej is a beautiful location situated outside the city centre. Finding a parking space in Al Khawaneej is seldom an issue because it is a suburb. While guests may use the spacious areas around the properties, houses have their own private parking lots. Typically, there is a sizable parking lot with wide bays near the public areas.

Soni Kapoor
Traveling can be an issue

Even though I have found Al Khawaneej a desirable locality to stay in, travelling could be an issue as there is very little public transportation available. There aren’t many options to reach the Dubai Metro Station. However, if you have your own car, then you would have no complaints!
